Today in youth church only 3 students could tell me why they were Christians.
It was disheartening. If you can’t tell a fellow Christian in a Christian setting, why you believe what you believe, I’m pretty much positive you aren’t representing Jesus in the streets.
Got me to wondering, are our kids even saved? Do they really know God or do they only say they know God because they know Bible stories and attend church?
I’m definitely not judging anyone’s salvation, but I am concerned. Greatly concerned.
With the hopes of getting them to start thinking about some things, I felt the need to share my story with the students. Why at 27, when I could do absolutely anything I wanted because I’m grown, have no kids, no husband, I could literally gratify myself, fund it and live absolutely however I wanted; yet at this age and with all these freedoms and options, I’m choosing to live wholeheartedly for God.
There’s so much I want to and could say, but I’ll wrap up.
There is a sense of urgency. A great need for young people to figure this thing out now because the world is getting more and more crazy. Satan isn’t playing games with their future and we shouldn’t either.
To every believer who knows young people, we need to step up. Lead them in the faith. Help them figure out this thing for themselves cause at the rate we’re going, we’re about to loose a generation to the enemy in the name of entertainment, self-gratification and temporal thinking.
“My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge. With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come; I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone. O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds. So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.” -Psalms 71:15-18 ESV
