What does a teenager do to honor God in their lives today?
In the age where following the normal way of things is acceptable. How do you know what pleases God and what doesn’t?
The world says it’s okay to have Sex, do drugs, smoke, drink and be free to do what you feel is good for you. I get it you want no restraints, no boundaries, and no rules. You just want to be your own person and do life on your own terms…. Right? But what if the life you choose causes you to miss your best life ever?
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is acceptable and perfect will of God.” Rom 12:2
What if you could choose to have someone who could guild you into all truth, help you find your purpose and provide you with help to live victoriously every day? Would you be interested?
Did you know…. You have a heavenly father that created you to be like him and wants to provide you with the best life ever!
He loves you and wants what is best for you in every way. Imagine having someone love you so deeply and so completely, that everything they plan for you is for your best. Wouldn’t you trust such a person with your life?
What if from the time you were born they knew you and couldn’t wait to meet you because they loved you so much and look forward to a life long journey with you. Would you learn from them? Would you follow them all your life?
You don’t have to follow the crowd. Follow the one who sent you a savior Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins so you will be close to him and sent you a comforter to comfort you and teach you the way you should go. The one who created all things including you and knows all about you from beginning to end and still loves you so completely and wants to give you your best life.
But it first starts with an introduction, then acceptance and then submission to his word through obedience.
Once you decide that you want your best life, Choose God. Honor him with your life. Read your Bible to learn his ways. Go to bible study so you can learn in a group setting so you can ask questions. Join a Christian youth group so you can hang out with likeminded people to keep you encouraged as you walk with God.
Here are some first steps:
- Give your life to Jesus. Make him Lord of your life.
- Yield to his will for your life. No matter how you feel, he knows what’s best for you.
- Pray always for help and strength and for understanding.
- Don’t worry about what people say. God will reward you for obedience.
- Trust him and stand on his word and he’ll never let you down
You’ll have Your Best Life Ever!
