A lot of our YOUTH today think that they are too young to get saved. They have a life to live. They have places to go, things to do, goals to accomplish. They aren’t ready to let go of their sins just yet, because somehow they still find life in dead things. They think they will be missing out on something if they leave it all behind.
But I just want to encourage the youth that you can never be too young to get saved. In fact, the younger you are when you get saved, the more lives you will be able to impact for the Kingdom of God. The younger you are when you get saved, the better your life will be, because when you walk in the wise counsel of God and according to his Word, it keeps your from making foolish, irresponsible and destructive decisions in your life that you will one day soon regret. I got saved in 2008 at 18, my freshman year of college. I was able to impact the lives of hundreds of people on my campus, as well as online in the past 4 1/2 years….
But I wish I would have allowed God to use me back in high school, because there were a lot of broken people in my high school–selling/buying drugs, fornication and early teen pregnancy, homosexuality and lesbianism, fights, bullying, etc… If I would have gotten myself together back then, I could have made a difference in my friend’s lives. But I was lost just like them, and the blind can’t lead the blind but into a ditch…
If you are still in high school, or just entering college, be a willing vessel for God and let him use you. This “God thing” is not just for adults and old people. It’s for everyone. And God especially wants to use the youth, because our generation is going to affect the generation that comes after us.
