Are you in your youth? Teenaged perhaps, still at school or in the prime of your youth as a young adult in college or university? Feeling invincible? Feeling too young to care about the greater issues of life? You just want to party and enjoy the ways of the world to the maximum extent possible? Have you decided that someday you’ll think about serving the Lord when you are older?
“Rejoice, O young man, in your adolescence, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your [full-grown] youth. And walk in the ways of your heart and in the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. Therefore remove [the lusts that end in] sorrow and vexation from your heart and mind and put away evil from your body, for youth and the dawn of life are vanity [transitory, idle, empty, and devoid of truth].” Ecclesiastes 11:9-10 [Amplified Bible]
Take advantage of your youth and give your young life to Christ so that He can start working in your life, using your energy and vitality to achieve great things for God over the total time span of your life.
"1 Don't let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, 'Life is not pleasant anymore.'
2 Remember him before the light of the sun, moon, and stars is dim to your old eyes, and rain clouds continually darken your sky.
3 Remember him before your legs - the guards of your house - start to tremble; and before your shoulders - the strong men - stoop. Remember him before your teeth - your few remaining servants - stop grinding; and before your eyes - the women looking through the windows - see dimly.
4 Remember him before the door to life's opportunities is closed and the sound of work fades. Now you rise at the first chirping of the birds, but then all their sounds will grow faint.
5 Remember him before you become fearful of falling and worry about danger in the streets; before your hair turns white like an almond tree in bloom, and you drag along without energy like a dying grasshopper, and the caperberry no longer inspires sexual desire. Remember him before you near the grave, your everlasting home, when the mourners will weep at your funeral.
6 Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young, before the sliver cord of life snaps and the golden bowl is broken. Don't wait until the water jar is smashed at the spring and the pulley is broken at the well.
7 For then, the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it." Ecclesiastes 12:1-7 [New Living Translation]
Accept Christ into your life today. One day you’ll look back with pride at your youth, instead of shame and regret.
How Do You Receive Christ into Your Life?
If you would like to receive the gift of salvation that God has for you today, make a decision in your own heart that you want to be forgiven of your sins and that you wish to turn your back on a sinful life. Believe in the Kingdom of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ [Mark 1:15]. The Bible says if you confess with your mouth (i.e. actually say it) that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, you will receive salvation [Romans 10:9-10]. Salvation is open to any human being who calls upon the name of the Lord [Romans 10:12-13].
