Jon continued to share the gospel message with a verse of discipleship:
[Jesus] died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. 2 Corinthians 5:15
During the devotional, Jon illustrated the verse by sharing his own personal testimony with the children.
Essentially, the death of a younger member of Jon's youth group caused teenage Jon to ponder his own eternal destiny. After some questioning, Jon realized Jesus was the only choice that made sense. Prayerfully, these children will make the same choice for Christ.
