Take Jesus to Prom

It's prom time and girls are out spending hundreds (dads don't swallow your tongue) of dollars on dresses and guys are trying to figure out how they can get their hands on a 68 Camaro or a stingray corvette to drive to prom in. Prom, just say the word an girls start giggling. For whatever reason it is the defining moment for many high schoolers. If you are lucky enough to be the king or queen it is a distinction you will carry with you the rest of your life. If your like most people that isn't you. Some people might be tempted to lower their standards for just one night. I wonder if that is you. Let me suggest that of all the decisions you make regarding prom make this one, take Jesus to Prom.

I know it sounds crazy. I am not suggesting you wear a big sign on your chest that says "John 3:16" or that you purchase a Jesus Bobble Head and put it on the dash of the Camaro (although that could be pretty sweet). Instead I am suggesting that you remember whatever you do will either bring glory to Jesus or it won't. The Bible tells us that whatever we do should be to God's glory.
