Deuteronomy 7:12-8:20; Ecclesiastes 9:11-10:20; Luke 8:40-56

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them. Ecclesiastes 12:1

Youth is full of vitality! We are driven by an abundance of energy. Nothing seems impossible. But as time passes the vim and vigour of youth fades. Our steps slow, our memory lapses and ambition no longer fuels us. Blessed are those who embraced Christ at their first opportunity, saturating themselves in His Word and prayer. Those words will His fellowship sustain when vitality and youth are gone. Don’t wait until “older age”, when mind and body may no longer comprehend God’s saving grace. Make your decision to follow Christ today! —Deborah Manera

Salvation is God’s way of making us real people. —Augustine
