"You and Aaron are to count according to their divisions all the men in Israel who are twenty years old or more and able to serve in the army." Numbers 1.3
There are countless examples in the Bible of God CALLING young people for His service.
Samuel, David, Solomon, Jeremiah, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshak, Abednego, Timothy, Jesus and many more.
This is your purpose, to serve God, to be a warrior and to be used by Him just like these great man were used.
They were not one more name among the crowd. They understood God's purpose for their lives.
You are unique, just like them. God has chosen you. You didn't choose Him. You are privileged.
Among thousands of youths in your school, neighborhood and town, you are the chosen one.
Or do you see it the other way around? Do you say, 'Why me? Why am I the only Christian in my class? Maybe I should just quit going to church and follow the crowd.'
Don't go to church (specially in the YPG) just because your parents go. Don't just tag along.
Do you realize that you are part of God's master plan?
