#1 – don’t judge “how you are doing” by church/fellowship attendance alone – ask yourself, “do I care about others? or am I just concerned about myself”

#2 – don’t wait for your summer camp/retreat to get serious about your relationship with God. It is not guaranteed that the event will happen. Nor is it guaranteed that you’ll be there. Get serious about your relationship with God now.

#3 – we are concerned with what we look like. we need to be concerned what HE looks like, through us.

#4 – go to a college that is going to be near mature Christians who will help you stand for God while you’re at school. don’t think that your major/career choice is only offered at schools not near a church that will help you remain faithful.

#5 – don’t let fear or shame stop you from returning to God and His people. if you have fallen, getting up again is part of being a follower of Jesus. staying down or going back is not what disciples do. don’t be afraid to confess/repent and be forgiven.

    Victor,

    Excellent points, and not just for teens!

    #1 is a great indicator of our hearts! When we are turned inward, we are typically not turned upward as we should; for when we turn upward, our focus naturally turns outward, to see how we can love and care for others.

    I wish I could have read this as a teen, but as Sean said, definitely great reminders for all of us — even for the more ‘aged’! 🙂
