“As God called Daniel to witness for Him in Babylon, so He calls us to be His witnesses in the world today. In the smallest as well as the largest affairs of life, He desires us to reveal to men the principles of His kingdom.” PK. p 487
We can have the same spirit that took a hold of Daniel and his friends. They drew their strength from God to possess self-control and grace under any circumstances. Even though we are surrounded by temptations of self indulgence and self gratification in our large cities as well as some country areas, through strong resolution and constant watchfulness we may stand firm against the assails of our souls.
I pray for a faithful and steadfast yielding to the divine guiding, so that God can fulfill in us His purpose. “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform until the day of Jesus Christ” Philippians 6:1
The Youth Pledge says: “Loving the Lord Jesus, I promise to take an active part in the youth ministry of the church, doing what I can to help others and to finish the work of the Gospel in all the world.” Let’s start this work now, today!
May God grant you the desire to witness, a loving heart and kind spirit everywhere you go.
The Objective of the Adventist Youth
To save from sin and guide into service... (click to read more)
“To save from sin and guide into service:” this true and only motive, so complete and impressive, was adopted during the 1926 General Conference session. To obtain the salvation of the youth it is necessary to give them every possible opportunity to participate in all Adventist youth activities. By keeping youth actively preparing for more efficient service, they are protected from evil. It is necessary to place them in some activity as soon as they are ready. The enemy will not prevail against youth who are actively engaged in the things of God.
That the youth may work for:
- Other youth
- Their church
- Their fellow men
