” Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit,in faith, in purity.”

1. Timothy 4:12

Paul’s words to his spiritual son Timothy puts an emphasis on youth. God’s calling into the ministry is not limited by age but applies to all who receive the call.

Paul goes on to say.

Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. “14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.”

It is important if you receive God’s calling on your life to go into the ministry to work towards it. At Young Preachers Net we may be able to help and support you in the vision you have received from God.

So let no-one despise your youth but you be faithful in what God has placed on your heart!
