It’s easy to find ourselves, and more so young men, caught up in the waves of change, challenges, and the pursuit of success. Yet, amidst these trials, God calls us to a path of faithfulness, courage, and integrity.

In all of this, there is tremendous strength and guidance found in God’s Word, tailored to encourage young men, the young men of faith, to are struggling to live lives that reflect His love and righteousness.

1. The Strength In God’s Word

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. – Deuteronomy 31:6

The world demands strength and courage, but not the kind that fades with the setting sun. True strength comes from understanding that God is always with us. In every challenge you face, remember that you are not alone. Let this assurance guide you to act with courage, not because you are invincible, but because you are supported by an invincible God.

2. The Young Men’s Call to Purity

How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. – Psalm 119:9

In a world that often blurs the lines of morality and truth, staying pure in thought, word, and deed is a bold stand. Use God’s Word as your compass, allowing its truths to mold your actions and decisions. Purity is not just about abstaining from wrong; it’s about embracing what is good, noble, and true.

3. The Wisdom of Humility

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. – Philippians 2:3

True wisdom lies in humility and the ability to consider others before yourself. This principle goes against the grain of a culture that often promotes self above all else. Be a young man who seeks to serve, love, and uplift those around you. In humility, you will find greatness not as the world gives, but as God ordains.

4. The Duty To Lead

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. – 1 Timothy 4:12

Leadership is not confined to age or experience; it is a call to live in such a way that others are inspired to follow. Young men have the unique opportunity to lead by example, showing what it means to live a life of faith, love, and purity. Embrace this call with both hands, and walk in a manner worthy of the calling you have received.

5. The Promise of His Presence

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. – Matthew 28:20

In your journey, there will be moments of doubt and loneliness. In these times, hold onto the promise that Jesus is always with you. His presence is a constant in the ever-changing landscape of life. Lean into His love and find peace in the assurance that you are never alone.

Dear young men, as you navigate the complexities of life, remember that your identity and strength lie in Christ. You are called to a life of purpose, marked by faithfulness, courage, and integrity. Let God’s Word be your guide, His presence your comfort, and His love your motivation.

May you rise to the challenge, living lives that shine brightly in a dark world, bringing glory to God in all that you do.

Paul’s Encouragement To Titus

The Apostle Paul wrote to Titus to encourage him, having left him behind to ensure the “perfecting of the saints”. The young men are to be encouraged to be self-controlled. Titus is to be an example by doing what is good.

Young men today are crying out for role models. Instead of following the good examples in the body of Christ, they look up to movie stars and rap singers who lead a life of drugs and violence. They dress in the styles of prison inmates, and speak as gangsters.

As we motivate our young men and women to do the things of Christ, let the men (and women) of the church be fitting examples that you would not be held accountable for their deviations from the Word.
