We live in a confusing and changing world. With so much discord and unhappiness swirling around it can sometimes feel impossible to lead a truly Christian life. When our political and social leaders are making great missteps and failing to succeed as being an example of good Christian living, it is easy to get discouraged. Despair not though, as a Christian you need not look to those around you to feel God’s love or for a good example. Know that your Heavenly Father wants only the best for you as a Christian youth, and that He provides you with all that you will ever need to succeed.

” For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord . They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

– Jeremiah 29:11

The times that Jesus Christ lived in were no less tumultuous than the times we live in now. Through his actions and great love for man, God showed the people of that time what it meant to be a Christian. God sacrificed his only begotten son, so that we would be able to love one another as God loves us and that we would fulfill his wishes by leading a good Christian life. The Christian youth of today is blessed with the opportunity to live in a time that you can do so much good in sharing God’s word. Know that you are blessed and have the power to help others by setting a good example of Christian living.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

–Philippians 4:13

Living your life as a good Christian means accepting others even though they may be different. The Christian youth of today can make a radical and lasting difference in the world by living their lives as God would want; by leading by example and by demonstrating that a good Christian life is a full one. Family, friends and God’s word are the greatest gifts that one can ever share and are all the rewards that come from Christian living. We are so blessed to have God’s great love in our lives. How better to honor that love than to share it with others who may be living in darkness?

“Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them ,because it is the Lord your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you.”

– Deuteronomy 31:6

Armed with the great love of God, there is no obstacle that you cannot overcome. Being a Christian offers you so many opportunities to share God’s word and God’s love. Don’t be afraid to be overjoyed at the great gift you have as a Christian youth. Know that, no matter what trial you are facing, God’s love will see you through. Stick to your beliefs, and live your life as God has commanded and you will reap the rewards of a good Christian life. Even in your darkest hour your great faith and Christian living will light your soul and fill you with a great peace, knowing that you are never alone.

“The Lord will guide you continually”

–Isaiah 58:11

Christian Youth – God Understands You

October 26, 2009 by  
Filed under Christian Articles, Christian Youth

Christian youth, our God is a loving and merciful God. The things that you are going through may seem so much bigger than you, but God is bigger still. God understands everything about you. He understands what you are going through. God understands how you feel and He understands the things that are going on in your head. And God believes in you. He believes that you will fulfill all of the things that He has destined you to fulfill. God believes that you will overcome the obstacles in your life. These obstacles have been created in the world by sin. Sin broke unlimited man’s fellowship with God. Jesus gave that fellowship back to us and with it comes the ability to live victoriously. God has a plan for you to live victoriously and God believes that you will jump into the fullness of your destiny.

“The Lord will guide you continually.”

–Isaiah 58:11

Do not let people make you think that Christian living is “un-cool”, because it is not. God loves you and wants to have a close, intimate relationship with you. If you feel like no one else understands you and that know one else believes in you, then know that God understands you and He believes in you. He will never leave you or forsake you. God planned your destiny before you were even born. Your destiny is God’s successful plan for your life. God understands what you are going through and what you are feeling. He even understands how discouraged you can get. But, He gave you a way out of that discouragement. He has hope for you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will direct your paths. Lean on God, call out to God and He will answer you. God loves you so much.

“Be strong and of good courage. Do not be afraid or dismayed”.

– 1 Chronicles 22:13

You are a Christian youth and that means that you have chosen to live for God, according to the Bible. You may not be able to do the things that you see other youth do, but God understands your feelings. He has given you the grace to be able to live for him. The Bible says that nothing can separate you from God’s love. No matter what you have done or where you have been, God will always accept you with his arms wide open. God understands. He wants to be your best friend. Gods love is unconditional. He will always love you no matter what you do. Go to God and tell Him that you love Him and ask Him to help you live for Him.

Know that God understands you. He understands your strengths and your flaws, and He has given you the strength to withstand temptation. No matter what you do God will always understand and love you. God made you. The Bible says that God formed you when in the womb and that he knew you even then. There is no one else who can love you more than God. Be encouraged and walk in the promises that God has for you. No matter what obstacles come your way: God believes in your ability to overcome and He loves you.

“Remember , I am with you always , to the end of the age”.

Matthew 28:20

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.”

–Jeremiah 17:7

Christian Youth God Loves and Accepts You Unconditionally

August 28, 2009 by  
Filed under Christian Articles, Christian Youth

How hard is it to accept others when you can’t accept yourself? You may not think that it is that complicated, but how you feel about yourself is reflected in how you treat other people. For example, if you have a lack of respect for yourself, that same respect will be lacking in your relationships with friends and family members.

It’s not easy being a young person let alone being a Christian as well. Adults won’t admit that they don’t always look back on that time in their life with fond memories. But, to be truthful and honest, you are experiencing growing pains, peer pressure, societal pressures, puberty and a host of other things that are not easy to deal with.

The one gift that you are getting here that your parents may not have had is the gift of the knowledge about God’s love. Right now, you may even be questioning if God is real. Rest assured He is.

The Bible says that God is real and alive but all you need to do is look around you to see that it’s true. Think about all the stars in the heavens or the layers of the atmosphere that protect us from the power of the sun or even the miracle of being born. Everything in the universe comes together too perfectly to be a coincidence or an accident.

And all that leads to you. Out of all the things that God has created you are His prize masterpiece. God knit you together before you were a sparkle in your mother’s eye (Psalm 139:13-14). He knows who you are and who you will become. He wants that for you but you have to believe it too.

With all of the pressures in life, it is easy to get down on yourself. Looking in the mirror isn’t always a pleasant experience. Your hormones tell you that unless you look like a million bucks, no guy or girl will be interested in you. And, most young people your age base their self-worth on the opinions of others. Adults do it too.

What you need to know is that you can hold your head up high because God created you to love you. Despite what circumstances surround your life at this moment, He wants to work through you to help others.

You may even be one of those young people who feel that they have messed up their life and there is no turning back. You made a mistake and others have left you because of it. God will never look at you in disgust or hatred. He sent His son Jesus to Earth so that you could know that.

When Jesus hung on the cross, he was crucified between two robbers. They were legitimate criminals who were guilty. One of the robbers asked Jesus to save him. Jesus told him that he would be in Paradise with him that very day. If you aren’t sure about God, it is never too late to turn to Him and experience an abundant life.

And, that is what God wants for you – an abundant life. Your friends may think that being a Christian youth is boring and you can’t have fun. That is the biggest misconception about loving Jesus. He wants you to have everything that He can give you. Christians laugh, love, live and play.

Life is not fair and things won’t always be easy. Both friends and parents will let you down sometimes. That shouldn’t scare you but make you cling to God even more. Nothing can change how we look in His eyes. Accept His view of you as who you really are.

Read this affirmation aloud to yourself:

God Loves Me,

God is Guiding Me,

God is Protecting Me,

God is Showing Me How to Live My Life”

Additional Scriptures:

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

-Jeremiah 29:11

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

-Romans 8:38-39
