“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in sprit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim.4: 12).
As young Christians we often say to ourselves, “How will God use me in the future?” or “What is God’s will for my life?”
But God has a plan and purpose for your life right now! He has commanded us to be an example to those around us, and his word tells us to “remember now [our] creator in the days of [our] youth.”
We face many challenges today. We are continually pressured by the world and even by other professing Christians to “loosen up”--relax our beliefs and convictions. But this is never God’s will for our lives. No matter what our circumstances are, we can make a difference in today’s world and honor our Savior by being an example in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith and in purity.
It is our prayer that you will find this issue good reading material for the summer months, as we are dependent on Him to feed and strengthen His people.
Thank you for your overwhelming response, and encouragement to this exercise.
Please keep praying!
Yours in our soon coming Lord,
Emil S Nashed
