The Young Man’s Bible

English Audio Version

What’s in Christianity for the youth of today?

When you have a strong back, smooth cheeks, and a bright smile, what need do you have of God?

What can the Church and the Word of God offer you that you can’t achieve on your own?

Here are four ways God can improve your life.

Deuteronomy 31:6 assures you that you’re never alone.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Friends who only want a good time will fall away in trouble. Jesus never will.

Joshua 1:9 tells you your strength flows from above.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Your strong arms are there for a time. When your youth fades, God will be your strength.

1 Timothy 4:12 is your assurance of respect.

“Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity."

The world says you are inexperienced. God sees you as a paragon of faithfulness before all mankind.

Luke 10:27 gives you a goal that is better than all others.

“And he answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

Other people are self-centered and self-indulgent. You are to be the hand of God to the needy and disenfranchised.

So, you still have thick hair, unlined skin, and boundless energy. That’s your youth. God says you are more. Your youth will one day fade, but your relationship with Christ will last for all time.

The Bible is for everyone, and that means you.

When we are broken for God, we are exactly who he needs us to be.
