In solidarity with Jason’s family and friends, someone suggested that fellow students at his High School write “Romans 1:16” on their hand when they returned to school following his death. His father had posted this earlier on FaceBook: “Jason has a verse on his Instagram profile from Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel. For it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…””
The person suggesting this show of support said “This is not to say or push on anyone that this is your belief, although my hope is that it is…but rather a tangible way for us to honor this young man using something he BELIEVED in and held onto.”
Jason’s life has made a difference. His testimony of faith, and the sharing of it by his family and friends, has made an impact on so many others. I’m thankful for having known Jason and pray for peace in the days and weeks ahead for all who have had him as a part of their life.
