Truth for Youth


How can I find courage in the face of stiff challenges? (1 Samuel 17:12-54)

Whenever God requires us to face trials and challenges, He always provides the courage to meet the demand. David was a man of extraordinary courage. It was not merely human courage, but providentially that courage was rooted in the Sovereignty of God. In I Samuel Chapter 17, we witness God’s supernatural strength in action in […]

“I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument” (Isaiah 41:15)

The Almighty God wants to change “Thou worm Jacob,” into a ‘New threshing instrument with teeth.’ Those who suffer most are capable of yielding most: and it is through pain that God is getting the most out of us, for His glory and the blessing of others. Life is very mysterious. We believe that God […]

FINISHING THE COURSE

 Not enough is said or written to-day about finishing well. Lots and lots of material are available on motivation to get started and creative ways to spark initiative. Plenty of advice is floating around on setting goals and establishing priorities. Starting well is plan ‘A,’ no doubt about it. But let us hear it from […]

WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME?

“WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU?” (MATTHEW 26:15) “AND JESUS SAID UNTO JUDAS: FRIEND WHEREFORE ART THOU COME?” (MATTHEW 26:50)             What will ye give me? This was not the first time in his life that Judas was tempted to ask that question. But it was perhaps the last. […]

IN THE UPPER BRANCHES

“Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). “I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil” (Romans 16:19).             An elderly woman had been confined to her bedroom for several years. Each spring she watched from her window as the same […]

“Those who honour Me, I will honour” (I Samuel 2:30).

One of the many ways in which we can honour the Lord is by standing true to divine principles and by steadfastly refusing to compromise. During his early years, Adam Clarke worked for a silk merchant. One day his boss showed him how he should stretch the silk when measuring it out for a customer. […]

THE BROKEN WING

“But in every nation he that feareth Jesus Christ and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him (Acts 10:34).   The anchor that tumbled off your life boat is dragging and snagging on the bottom. Guilt and anxiety have come aboard, pointing out the great dark hulks of shipwrecks below. They busy  themselves  drilling worry-holes in […]

“DO NOT BE LIKE THE HORSE OR LIKE THE MULE” (Psalm 32:9).

It seems that the horse and the mule picture two wrong attitudes you might have when you are seeking the Lord’s guidance. The horse wants to charge ahead; the mule wants to lag behind. The horse tends to be impatient, high spirited and impetuous. The mule on the other hand, is stubborn, intractable and lazy. […]

Y- O- U- R T- E- S- T- I- M- O- N-Y

One time-honored and effective method of evangelism is the giving of your personal testimony. The skeptic may deny your doctrine or attack your Church but he cannot honestly ignore the fact that your life has been changed. He may stop his ears to the presentation of a preacher and the pleadings of an evangelist, but […]

“He who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ – right up to the time of His return – developing and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you” (Philippians 1:6 – Amplified Bible).

The one who began will continue right up to the end. Being the original finisher, He will persist. You are comforted to know that Jesus Christ would not be talked out of a plan that has to do with developing you. Since you are to be “imitators of God” we ought to be about the […]
