Golden Teens Corner

…as Plants and Cornerstones (Psalms 144:12)

You might wonder what exactly this means.

Many youths and teenagers of this present age claim to serve God but are not his servants.

Who is a servant?

Matthew 8:9 {NIV} says; For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

According to that verse; A servant is one who obeys the instructions of his master. Therefore, a servant of God completely obeys all the instructions the Lord gives him.

It is therefore evident that all servants of God are serving God, but not all that claim to serve God are servants of God.

It can be related to the comparison between an alkali and a base. A base {which is a substance that can neutralize an acid} can either be soluble or insoluble, while an alkali on the other hand; is a soluble base.

What does this mean?

This means that, all alkalis are bases but not all bases are alkali.

Most people claim to serve God but are lacking in the aspect of complete and total obedience to his words. The people who fall under this category are not servants of God.

A true servant of God does not just claim to serve him, but obeys him to the core because the word SERVICE revolves around the word OBEDIENCE.

Ephesians 6:5-6 says;
KJV: Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

With more focus on the verse 6; I’d like us to not just be servants of God as men pleasers but servants of God from the heart.

You say you serve God but do you obey him?

Dear Teenagers/Youths,

It is a great opportunity to know God at a tender age so we shouldn’t let this opportunit, slip away from us.

Our teenage years should be years in which we equip ourselves for God’s use.

We shouldn’t play around with these years. They are our most delicate years and they’ll help us build a strong foundation in Christ.

Remember; Serve God, and be his servant.
