Subtopic- Young People need Jesus too!
You are never too young to come to Jesus Christ. It does not matter how young or old you may be; you are never too young to come to Jesus Christ.
It does not matter what grade you may be in; you are never too young to come to Jesus Christ.
It does not matter if you are in preschool or in college: you are never too young to come to Jesus Christ.
It does not matter what race, nationality you may be of; you are never too young to come to Jesus Christ.
In matter of fact, the word of God encourages young people to have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ while they are young.
Psalm 119:9 says, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word?”
Here we see in Psalm 119:9 that God wants young people to read, study, and learn the Word of God because it is through the Word of God that we can learn about the Lord and how we should live for the Lord while we are young.
In I Timothy 4:12 says, “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.”
Here we see in I Timothy 4:12 that God wants young people to be an example of Jesus Christ in every thing they do or say.
In Ecclesiastes 12:1 says to “Remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth…..”
In other words, while you are young, take time out to get to know Jesus Christ for yourself! Not only should you need to get to know the Lord for yourself, but while you are young, you ought to serve the Lord. While you are young, you ought to worship the Lord. While you are young, you ought to testify and be a witness about the goodness of the Lord. No matter what talent or gift that God has given you, you ought to use your talent or gift for the glory of the Lord, and you are never too young to give God the glory that He deserves!!!
Now, in Matter 19:13-15, we read about how some parents who had brought their young children to Jesus so He could lay his hands on them to be blessed. And it is a blessing when parents bring their children to the Lord to be blessed. In matter of fact, the Word of God commands parents to teach their children about the goodness of the Lord and to train their children in the ways of Jesus Christ.
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 says, “Hear O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart; And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down and when thou risest up.
Proverbs 22:6 says to “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Ephesians 6:4 says, “And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture, and admonition of the Lord.”
