On the last day of the youth retreat of Living Love Global Ministries (26/4/2020), God’s servant gave a brief charge on the topic: The Work of Jesus is Urgent.He drew the texts from four cardinal scriptures : Ecclesiastes 12:1,Daniel 6:13, Esther 4:16, John 9:4.
Ecclesiastes 12:1 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.
Daniel 6:13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
Esther 4:16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
It was really an exhortation as the eyes of all were opened on the necessity of maximizing the youthful season to make every required investment;spiritual,mental,social,etc. As recorded in Lamentations 3:27 : It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
Four Major Areas We need to urgently invest in now as Youths
1. PRAY FULL
2. FAST FULL
3. STUDY FULL
4. SERVE FULL
The charge ended with four major prayers points to help the youth align with God’s urgent work now!
