Do you know the power of Involvement? As we launch out on Lord Transform Me, God and His Church, needs Total Youth Involvement! What will be the end result? Christ will come sooner! Who should get involved?
According to 2 Peter 3:12, It is the privilege of every Christian not only to look for but to hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (margin).
In Christ’s Object Lessons, page 69, we are told that “were all who profess His name bearing fruit to His glory, how quickly the whole world would be sown with the seed of the gospel. Quickly the last great harvest would be ripened, and Christ would come to gather the precious grain."
Why get involved?
God is interested more in our availability than our creativity! Youth possess both! Have you noticed that the devil doesn’t take away our gifts and talents? He simply uses our creativity to keep us busy! Can you imagine what would happen in Lord Transform Me reaping campaigns if creative youth were available to be used? Ellen White said that if the young of the church were a well-trained army, the Lord would come soon; and that when the members do their work at home and abroad, the world will soon be warned, and the Lord will come. (Education, p. 271; The Acts of the Apostles, p. 111.)
How to get involved?
Whether you are singing in the praise team, a musician, an usher, a Bible worker, guest transporter, sound technician, live streaming, decorator or prayer warrior, there are more ways than one to get involved.
In whatever way you choose to get involved, be encouraged that no involvement is too small to be powerful. The power of Involvement is that “by giving the gospel to the world it is in our power to hasten our Lord's return. We are not only to look for but to hasten the coming of the day of God. Had the church of Christ done her appointed work as the Lord ordained, the whole world would before this have been warned, and the Lord Jesus would have come to our earth in power and great glory.” --- Ministry magazine, December 1971.
Talk to your Pastor or Youth Leader today! Get involved! Experience the Power! And may the Lord Transform Us! --Pastor Jamal Franklyn, Youth Director.
