A Call to the Youth | MYP

 

The cause of God calls for young men (which includes young women too),”…with hearts uncorrupted, strong and brave, and determined to fight manfully in the struggle before them, that they may glorify God and bless humanity.”{MYP 21}
“… young men of literary qualifications.” “Young men of ordinary ability, who give themselves wholly to God, who are uncorrupted by vice and impurity…“ {MYP 22} These types of young men (and women), our Lord finds joy in. Is it your desire to be one of these soul winning missionaries,  dear friend?

“One soul saved from error, and brought under the banner of Christ, will cause joy in heaven, and place a star in your crown of rejoicing. A soul saved will, through his godly influence, bring other souls to a knowledge of salvation, and thus the work will multiply, and only the revealings of the day of judgment will make manifest the extent of the work.” {MYP 23} 

“O that young men might appreciate the high destiny to which they are called!” On the contrary, we find some other types of young men in Isaiah 9:17: “Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men…for every one is an hypocrite and an evil doer, and every mouth speaketh folly.” If you find yourself fitting into this group, don’t despair. By God’s grace, there is hope! For the the Scripture continues, “…For all this his anger is not turned away but his hand is stretched out still.” (vs. 17) 

Our Heavenly Father’s hand is stretched out still. Take of hold of His strength, and learn how to respond to the calling of God, for your life – in this week’s lesson!
