What does God want from young Christians?
As a young man I always wonder: what does God want from me? It is important to maintain a rapprochement with God to discover, as we walk with Him, what plans God has for us, young Christians.
I will share four relevant aspects of what God wants from young Christians:
1. That the young man lead a clean life:
Therefore, the clean life that God wants to manifest his power in us, we must remember that God can only be seen when kept in holiness (Hebrews 12:14). In addition, the only way to stay clean is to keep and apply God's word in our lives (Psalm 119: 9).
2. That the young person has a direct behavior:
In the word of God in Titus 2: 6-7 the value of prudence, integrity and seriousness is taught. It should be understood that young people are not taken seriously many times, but we must pray and ask for the character and behavior that Jesus had on this earth in our lives, more than what was affected.
3. That young people be an influence on others:
God wants us to feel useful for His kingdom, and more in our youth, since for Him we are sent, and for us a weapon of example for others in word, conduct, love, spirit, faith and purity (1 Timothy 4:12 )
4. May his spirit be stronger than his flesh:
God hopes that young Christians will not be defeated by the things that this world offers, and that we can be strong within ourselves. It is sad to think that many times you spend much more time in the gym, something that is not bad! Well, it is important to take care of our body, but more than the body is the spirit, and we must strengthen it with the word of God, fasting and prayer, yes! These are the only spiritual machines together with the help to those in need that God gives us, since they strengthen the weaknesses that are within us and make us more sensitive to what God calls us (1 John 2:14).
In addition to all this, God wants us to be faithful, this world has many desolations and young Christians can become God's tools for many people to approach Jesus. And yes, you are a son and you are probably going through difficulties, but you should not fear since Jesus became a man and without any sin he showed us that you can be faithful (Hebrews 4:15).
