“Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them” (Ecclesiastes 12:1).Text — Ecclesiastes 12: 1-7
Youthful stage is the most vital period in one’s life. It is the prime of one’s life, a time of choices and major decision-making in life. William B. Given said, “When possible make the decision now, even if action is in the future. A reviewed decision usually is better than the one reached at the last moment.” Your destiny is in your hand. You cannot make any head way in life without remembering God. Some youths rule out honouring God in their daily pursuit. They live their life as if they hold tomorrow at their fingertips. Learn to appreciate God in your life by serving Him truly, and living a consistent Christian life. Let your lifestyle show that you remember God.
There are youths who gave their lives to Christ early and continue with Him. Such remember God always. However, the sinning youth must be reminded to turn to God and remember Him to seek forgiveness of sins and salvation of their souls. Thereafter you remember God for protection and deliverance and make the whole world to remember Him (Psalm 20:7; 22:27).
Remember Him for forgiveness of sins
Let your lifestyle show that you remember God.
