"Shoot Me First"

Here is the story of the week if you ask me.

Since I work with High School students I am intensely interested anytime a teenager does the unexpected and the extraordinary. And this is extraordinary. I work with about 35 6th through 12th graders and I do not have one who would have even entertained such an idea. OK, maybe one. But he is the only one I can imagine acting heroically in any situation.

But this story highlights what I am after. I want students who believe "for to me to live is Christ and to die is gain." I want students so captured by the glory of Christ and so full of affection for the glory of God and so enthused with the gospel, courage coupled with love is natural.
