There are a lot of things that we learn in life as we get older. We learn how to treat people, treat ourselves, and other things.
The most important thing we need to do is to give our life to Christ and learn to live for Him early.
Have you ever said, “If I had known this, I would have done it different”? Or, “If I could start my life all over, I would do it another way”?
We already know we can not start our life over. We can only make the best of the rest of it.
I have great news for you. If you get to know Jesus now, you will be able to enjoy the rest of your life with little or no regrets. When I say know Him, I am not saying just read about Him, but that you need to have a relationship with Him and be obedient to His Word.
Too many times people wait to give their lives to Christ after they have grown old and have no zeal. It is not fair to wait and give Christ what little life you have left. Not so much that age is the factor, because there are people of age who are great in Christ. I am saying, however, to live for Him now while you are young and have plenty of energy.
Yes, Christ wants people of all kinds. He wants those who are young, old, willing, and He also wants fireballs.
Committing early to Christ creates great benefits. Starting young and early makes the rest of your life good and you will be able to reach more people and have more energy to work for Him. Ask someone you know if they wish they would have committed to Christ earlier in life. I’m pretty sure they will tell you yes.
The scriptures give plenty of examples of people who started about their Father’s business young and gained a lot of power over the adversary because of it. Satan stands over every cradle hoping to change our children’s destination early before they can even come close to maturing in Christ. We as parents must make a difference and teach them that an early commitment is the best commitment. Everyone needs a relationship with Christ if we are going to make it in this world!
