Young People…read this!
1 Timothy 4:12 “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
Young people…listen up! Did you know that no matter what age you are you can make a HUGE impact on the earth? Society poorly attempts to teach that young people are immature, senseless, selfish and until you have an education, job, and a family your voice isn’t worth much. I want to challenge that thought with God’s identity over your life! Let no man despise your youth, this means do not let any person tell you what you can and can’t do, instead seek God and do what Jesus said and preach the Gospel to every living creature!
Did you know you can actually be the example to people of all ages? Timothy (whom this passage was originally written to) was the youngest pastor of his day pastoring the largest church in the world! Wow, he had a lot of responsibility on his shoulders but God called him to be a world changer and he answered the call. Did you know you could be a world changer? Your youth is not a blockade but a springboard into your future!
Let’s get serious and go after our destiny with boldness! The Spirit of God lives in YOU! So be bold young man and young woman!
Let me give you some examples…
