Impact For Christ

Over the past several years, Iíve been privileged to travel with teenagers on eight mission trips. One thing Iíve learned in those excursions is that teens are not too young to make an impact for Jesusóeither on me or on others whose lives they touch.

Iíve also noticed that the teens who make the biggest impact for Christ match the characteristics Paul told Timothy about in 1 Timothy 4:12. Trying to convince Timothy that his relative youth did not have to be a deterrent to his ministry, Paul told him to ďbe an example to the believersĒ in several areas.

In word: Young people who make a difference for Christ control what they say, avoid negative talk, and speak words that honor God. In conduct: Teens who practice discretion in their behavior shine for all the world to see. In love: By taking heed of Jesusí words to love God and their neighbor (Matt. 22:37-39) teens please Jesus and touch hearts. In faith: Those who put their faith into action change lives. In purity: Itís tough to be morally pure and doctrinally sound, but kids who are can set the bar for the rest of us.

Paulís words arenít just for the young generation. All of us should be an example in word, conduct, love, faith, and purity. Thatís how we make an impact for Christ.





O Christians, remember, you bear His dear name,
Your lives are for others to view;
Youíre living examplesómen praise you or blame,
And measure your Savior by you. óAnon.





The most valuable commentary on the Bible is a godly life.
