A lot of times, it seems like our youth is a drawback. People tell us we’re too young, we can’t do things as well, we need to wait until we’re older. In some cases, this is true. At other times, this is the worst advice you could ever take. And eventually, we’ll fall into this habit of “I’m waiting until I’m older”, and we never accomplish anything. We never do the things that we can do at this age. Let’s take a look at 1 Timothy 4:12.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.
To put it simply, this is an amazing verse. It’s the verse that the Rebelution is based on, and I can see why. It’s inspiring to us as teenagers. We don’t have to crawl back into our shells and wait until we’re older. We can be an example to other believers now. God doesn’t care about your age. What He cares about is your heart. And if you have a heart to serve, that’s all that matters!
I heard this verse at a recent youth conference. It’s Psalm 145:4.
One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.
We are that generation. We have a duty to share God’s Word, His love, His salvation with others. This is not a time to wait for tomorrow to do what can be done today.
We don’t have “all the time in the world”. What we have is today, and if we don’t use it, we’ll never get another chance. You can live for God today, no matter how old you are, because we are all His children. We all have the ability to let his love shine through us for the world to see.
