     Youth Sermon -
      Held Together

        Love holds us
      together in unity.

  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • a bolt

   I would like for you to discover
   what this tape, glue, stapler, and
   bolt have in common. Think about
   (Allow them to answer.)

  That’s right! They are all used to
  hold things together. Most of you
  probably have tape and glue in your
  desk at school or in your room. You
  may also have a stapler of your
  own, or perhaps your teacher or
  parents do. Your father probably
  has a jar of bolts in the garage that
  he uses to hold metal or wooden
  objects together. Almost everything
  we have has to be held together by
  something. Can you name a few
  other things that hold things

   There is something else that needs
   to be held together as well and
   that is people. We need to be
   close to people. If we are not, life
   becomes very sad and lonely. We
   need to be close to our family, to
   our friends, and to our fellow
   church people-plus many others.
   Let me tell you what holds people
   together better than anything else:
   Love! Love is the best tape, the
   best glue, the best staple, the best
   bolt that you can find to keep you
   close to people. There are other
   things that we sometimes think
   keep us close to others but they
   don’t work as well as love.

 You may think that it’s because you live
 on the same street that you are friends
 with a certain person, but if that is all
 that makes you friends it will be over
 with the first time you have a serious
 fight. Sometimes we think we are close
 friends with someone because we like
 the same sport or the same games but
 this usually doesn’t last either. Even
 living in the same house with your
 family will not automatically make you
 close to them. In every case what we
 really need is love for that person. No
 matter what you like doing with
 someone close to you, just remember
 that to love that person is the most
 important thing of all. Love will be the
 tape, the glue, the staple, the bolt that
 holds us together in unity.
