Care For Young Converts

Key Verse

“For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established” (Romans 1:11).

Text — Romans 1:8-12


A young convert or a new convert is an individual who recently made a decision for Christ and received the experience of the new birth. Such an individual, irrespective of the age and status, is regarded as a babe in Christ, and like the natural new-born baby, requires lots of care and attention in order to thrive. Paul the Apostle was deeply concerned for the welfare of the new converts. He desired that they should be established in the faith and grow up into healthy, robust Christians.

Young converts need tender, loving and watchful care from their spiritual parents. They need encouragement and support during trials and persecutions. They need friendship, companionship and fellowship of the brethren. They need instructions and teaching on the basic doctrines of the Bible. They need guidance, counselling and warning against the wolves and false teachers. They need to be taught the secrets of victorious Christian living and fruitful Christian service.  These are some of our obligations to the young convert. And these we must do to the end that they may be established.


They need guidance


We have an obligation to the young converts.
