How do you speak about ministry to the youth?
It is important to realize the youth are in a culture where their ideas are being shaped about marriage and sexuality. Teenagers are being pressured to be sensual with anyone. Scripture teaches intimacy is reserved for marriage between one man and one women.
The kids are being stretched thin and are under more pressure. Because they are being stretched so thin, they feel there is no time for personal ministry or personal devotion.
In today's world, youth are being pressed by sin and evil and are unsure of how to handle it. As parents and/or ministers, we need to be honest and speak truth. Sharing this truth can lead to a lasting relationship with the Lord. Encourage them to base everything on God’s Word.
