“Let no man despise your youth; but be thou an example of the Believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (I Timothy 4:12).
True spiritual growth is not measured by age, but by what you know. Every believer is called to be an example, to set the pattern.
At Lift up The Banner Ministries we set proper example for our youth; we are brave enough to tell them “The Truth”. Scripture tells us to “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”. We are in this world but we are not of it. We stand in the blood of Christ, not outside of it. We preach, teach, and believe the Cross of Christ, and have our faith firmly planted in what Jesus did for us at Calvary. We realize that it is a finished work through His death, burial, and resurrection.
Understanding Christ and Him crucified is what produces real change, through conviction and repentance of sins. For that is the real Gospel of Jesus Christ: a message that leads to conviction, repentance, and produces true change.
We are all this and more. But above all, we are unique soldiers of one accord in Christ standing in the gap for today’s youth, attempting to make up the hedge by raising the standard.
