““Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, ‘Young man, I say to you, arise.’”
“I say to you, arise” are the very words countless young people need to hear from Jesus today. Far too many young lives are locked in the coffin of pornography and sexual confusion or confined to the casket of approval based on social media “likes.” It’s a rough way to live, but there is a remedy.
What if we adults made a determined effort to pour the life and love of Jesus Christ into our youth? Mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, aunts and uncles, if we want our young people to be set free and arise, we must give them the instruction and admonishment of the living Word of God.
Imagine what would happen if you talked in the simplest way possible during dinner about one of Jesus’ parables. Or how about if you made it a point to say good night with a psalm or song? I believe we would see a dramatic turnaround in the sociological and spiritual conditions of young lives as their minds are cleansed of the day’s dirt.
Believer, we must show our young men and women that there is no better way to live than trust and dependence upon the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to tell them that they can start life anew. All the blessings and benefits of salvation in Christ are theirs for the asking—it can happen today. Jesus came to make dead people live and set them free! He says to you, “Arise! You have a life to live!”
Awaiting His return,
