Your youth and You

This article is directed to the youths. The youthful life is very exciting amidst the burst of energy that come with it. You tend think that whole life ahead of you is in your hands. As with most things in life that has checks amnd balances or rather cause and effect; to whom much is given much is expected. This article is an encouragement to every youth on the need to look at life in another way based on the wisdom from the Scriptures. I hope you will read it and put it to heart.


Let no man despise your youth:
“Remember now thy Creator in the days of your youth, while the evil days come not, now the years draw nigh, when thou shall say, I have no pleasure in them” (Ecclesiastes, 12:1).
As a youth you have a lot of opportunities ahead of you. But you have to remember yor God who created you and have given you the strength to do what you do. Live a life of purpose. Allign your purpose, belief and value to work in line with the will of god for your life. That's when you'll find fullfilment.

But be thou an example of the believers in word:

“ Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom: teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in yours to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians, 3:16-17).

Knowing your Creator first time gives you a "heart " start to be able to live for Him and this in turn sets you on the high plane. You've become an example of the believers. Hence cultivate those habits that will enable you to live in this realm with full joy and assurance.

In conversation:
“Let no corrupt communication proceed from your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians, 4:29).
Remenver that what defiles a man is not what goes into Him, but what comes out of his mouth. Guard your heart with all diligence

In charity:
“Above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness” (Colossians, 3:14).
Love is the fulfillment of the Law. Aim to make love your very nature, The mark of the true disciples is that they love one another. It's a command.

In spirit:
“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the spirit” (Ephesians, 5:18).
Remember that you need to be sober so that you can pray. Continue to practice those habits that keep you in the love of God

In faith:
“As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: rooted and built up in him, and stabilised in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving” (Colossians, 2:6-7).
Let the word of Christ dwell richly in you in all wisdom. The reason the word of God has been givenn to us is that it will help us to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of God if we faithfully DO what we've learnt in them.

In purity:
“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word” (Psalm, 119: 9): and “flee also youthful lusts but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2Timothy, 2: 22).
You have to be Holy for God is Holy. In this day and age, there's a lot of things that will want to entangle us. The work of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the appeal to buy every thing that's swayed at us by the modern technology so called. Always remenber that you are not to please yourselve but to please God who gave His Son - Jesus Christ who's become both our Lord and Savoiur.

Scriptures were taken from the Authorised King James Version. *: were from (1Timothy, 4:12).
