Challenging Young People (I Peter 3:15)


More young people are turning away from the church because the world seems to offer more of their immediate needs than the church has to offer. Many enter the world having high expectation only to be disappointed because all the hope they had has become a struggle to achieve; Churches may have failed to equip them. Therefore, they find it difficult to defend their belief; many are ashamed to declare Jesus the Son of God.

If we should compare the time that we were young to the life of young people today: We have this in common, we depend on our parents; upon reaching the age of maturity we become independent of those who cared for us while we were young. There is an exception, however, he is Jesus. It may have been that colleges and universities did not allow us to forget about Jesus but they certainly allow young people today. Students are drawn to technology and technology does not include Jesus. Churches are making a wise move in that they are keeping current with the time. Technologies are being bought and implemented by them.

Churches are becoming more interactive. All that is needed is proper education of Jesus’s gospel, which interactive programs may provide. Parents need to live in hope as in the prodigal son (Luke 15) but while you wait, prepare to instill in them the way in which to follow Jesus. All have heard the Word of God during the time they follow Jesus. It is the preparation we need

Following Jesus does not remove us from the world. It helps us to deal with the world. Without Jesus we are lost; some are fortunate to find their way back home while some will perish according to the life they have chosen. Jesus way requires us to repent of our sins, establish our faith and act on the Word of God in every situation that will occur. It is a challenge especially for young people today.

It is not an easy task to work at a career in a University and/or college and focus on the way of Jesus. Realize that Jesus’s way of living is as natural as the way of the world. It depends only on our love for him and that of our neighbours. Realize that loving God and our neighbours are also the treasure Jesus suggested for our hearts whether or not we are being parents or students.
