God wants us to be sure of our salvation, which is why He gives us tests in 1 John to objectively evaluate our lives by. In the opening message of Worthy 2012, Dave Brewer encouraged the teens to evaluate their life through their obedience to the Word of God.

Frances Ridley Havergal, who was to become one of the best-known Christian writers of the nineteenth century, was born in 1836 in a tiny hamlet in the depths of the Worcestershire countryside in England. She chose to serve as a single woman, and throughout her short life (she died at the age of 42), she was engaged in a range of extraordinarily productive ministries. Her hymn, “Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee,” sums up the passion of her life.
