A Kind Of Young People God Can Use

A. THOSE WILLING TO FLEE IMMORALITY…

  1. Like Joseph did, when it would have been so easy for him to acquiesce – Gen 39:7-12
  2. As Timothy was instructed – 2 Ti 2:22

(When anyone is willing to keep their bodies pure, they can be a temple in which the Holy Spirit can abide and do much good – cf. 1 Co 6:18-20)

B. THOSE WILLING TO TRUST IN GOD…

  1. Like David did when fighting Goliath – cf. 1 Sam 17:37,45-47
  2. Who later proclaimed the value of trusting in God – 2 Sam 22:31

C. THOSE WHO HAVE THE PROPER PRIORITIES…

  1. Like Solomon, who realized the value of wisdom – 1 Kin 3:5-9
  2. And later exhorted his son to seek after wisdom – Pro 3:1-6

(If we are willing to seek the kingdom of God first, our Father will provide – Mt 6:33)

D. THOSE WILLING TO SEEK THE LORD WITH HUMILITY…

  1. As did Josiah, even when he was eight years old – 2 Chr 34:3
  2. Who later was told that he was blessed because of this – 2 Chr 34:26-28

E. THOSE WILLING TO BOLDLY DO GOD’S WILL…

  1. As did Jeremiah, even though he had to be reassured at first – cf. Jer 1:6-8
  2. But then began his ministry by preaching at the gate of the temple – Jer 7:1-7

F. THOSE WILLING TO BE TRUE TO THEIR CONVICTIONS…

  1. As was Daniel, who refused to compromise his beliefs – Dan 1:8
  2. But as a result found favour in the eyes of others – Dan 1:9

G. THOSE WILLING TO HUMBLY SUBMIT TO GOD’S WILL…

  1. As did Mary Lk 1:38
  2. Who accepted the premise that with God nothing is impossible! – Lk 1:34-37

H. THOSE WILLING TO BE AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS…

  1. As Paul instructed Timothy 1 Ti 4:12-16
  2. An example in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity

(For then can one save not only themselves but others as well! – 1 Ti 4:16)
