“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” ~ 1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Last Sunday, I was on my way to church when two Korean girls suddenly approached. At first I expected to just be asked questions about English or being a foreigner in Korea. But the more we talked, I then realized that they approached me to share the Gospel. I was completely taken aback and was not expecting anything like that, especially from a middle schooler and high schooler and for the fact that English is not their first language.
One word I can describe these two young girls is brave. Even I, being one of the youngest in my church and the youngest almost everywhere I go, would not have done something like that; and I felt so ashamed. I used to when I was a little girl, but I was turned down a lot and lost hope in sharing the Word. Nowadays, I tend to let my actions reveal my faith, but even then, it is still important to demonstrate in speech.
In addition to being brave, these two girls are putting into action 1 Timothy 4:12. It humbled me to be approached by these two younger girls and really set an example for me. For years I have wanted to make a difference regardless of my age, but I also struggle with what people think and being rejected. However, Jesus Himself said He will be with us we live out the Great Commission.
”’Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:19-20
Don’t let anything stop you from sharing the Gospel, because you never know who needs to hear it. Have a great Memorial Day weekend. As always, we love hearing from you! ❤
