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. 1 Timothy 4:12
For those of you considering following Jesus… This is not an easy walk, this is not an easy choice, this is not an easy lifestyle, this is not going to magically make your life perfect, not everyone is going to applaud your choice of choosing Him, and in fact- when you REALLY get committed, it’s going to get harder. Some people will decide that because of your choice, they will no longer like yo u. They think that the message of Jesus is offensive… and it is… simply because the very concept of Jesus states that there’s something not right with me, and I need Jesus to make it right. Most of us don’t like the think that there’s anything wrong. But the raw simple truth is, God is perfect, awesome, self-sufficient, all knowing, and all power… He does not NEED anything from us, because if He did- that would not make Him God. But- He wants us. He loves us so much His very heart beat is calling US to His side. The big picture is- we. need. Jesus. Simple as that. WE need Him. He does not need us, but He WANTS us. WE need Him, but this world chooses to push Him aside. Aint that a hoot. I don’t know if I stressed this enough BUT… He loves us to the point that He would die for us… Almighty God… stepping down from the throne to show us How vast His love is. We need that love.
