Christian Youth Ė Itís Cool to Count on God


Few things in life are more difficult than being a teenager. From the age of twelve to eighteen, life resembles a rollercoaster. The highs are great, but the lows, well, the lows can be pretty lonely, canít they?

As if growing up and figuring out who you are supposed to be isnít enough of a challenge, society puts all this pressure on you to be cool. Look cool. Act cool. Make other people think youíre cool. And perhaps the most preposterous of them all: Believe that you are cool. Our culture does everything imaginable to eat away at your self-esteem, and then tells you that itís your responsibility to feel good about yourselves. Tricky, isnít it?

Many teenagers feel that Christianity isnít cool. Depending on where you live, and the people youíve been exposed to, maybe youíve had negative experiences with Christianity. But a negative experience with organized religion is not the same as a negative experience with God. Religion might not be cool. But God is cool. Very cool.

You probably donít think that rules are cool. (Who does?) Someone may have told you that if you want to be with God, you canít drink, canít think about the opposite sex, canít swear, and have to get up early on Sundays.

God is much more than all that. God is not about rules. God is about freedom.

God is about helping you become who you are.

Hereís why Godís cool:

God is your best friend. At some point, youíve probably had your heart broken by a friend. Has somebody betrayed you, talked about you behind your back, took something away just because they knew you wanted it? Probably. God will never do any of those things. God loves you and wants whatís best for you.

God will never leave you. Friends come and go. Relationships bloom suddenly and then vanish. But not God. He has been there for you since the beginning and will be there for you through eternity. Donít you want someone to count on? God is that someone.

God is the only one who truly knows you. Youíre changing so fast, you can barely keep up with yourself, right? You donít even know who you are. Your parents certainly donít seem to know. And your friends donít seem to care who you really are. Well, the Bible tells us that God knew you before you were even conceived, that He has a plan for you, and that He knows how many hairs are on your head. God knows your thoughts before you even think them. Tired of feeling lost? Tired of feeling like nobody knows you? You should be tired! Feeling like that is exhausting! But you donít have to feel like that. God knows exactly who you are, who you want to be, and who you can be.

God wants whatís best for you. While others may seem to be driving you crazy with demands about good grades, good behavior, good clothes, a good boyfriend or girlfriend, good music, God just cares about you.

In short, God is cool because He desires for you to be cool. Life is so much easier when you count on your best friend. So talk to Him. Heís always listening.
