In II Timothy 2, Paul says “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”
Many teens never put their faith into action, waiting for a big opportunity that may never come or a sign that the time is finally right. Others think they are better served by waiting until they graduate high school, or finish college, or start their career, or whatever the next excuse is. But the time is now. It’s your turn to forsake sin. It’s your turn to grow closer to God. It’s your turn to take a stand for Christ. It’s your turn to share your faith with others. No matter what opportunity arises, don’t make the mistake of waiting. It’s your turn!
