9How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
The Word of God will teach you how to live and be blessed, the Word of God has completely equipped us all to do the work that God has called us to do. The youth have suffered a brutal attack by the enemy. With the influence of today’s media the lines of what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad have been blurred. We are losing our direction and purpose, and seeking to re-gain it in all the wrong ways. I know there are a lot of young people longing to walk the righteous path, longing to not live according to worldly standards. You may not admit it to your friends or even to your families but I know that there are plenty of you out there who know when you’re alone at night, examining your life and thinking to yourself that the place you’re at right now is not where you are supposed to be, that there is better in store for you. I know there are many of you that know there is more to life than drugs, sex, money, and other material things. I’ve had those same thoughts, and have been in that exact same place. A place where I felt like my life was in a whirlwind, taking a downward spiral and I didn’t know whether to go right or left, and just couldn’t seem to find and stay on the straight and narrow path to my destiny. I’m here to tell you that there is more to life, and that there is someone and something who can help you to find and stay on the path of purity to your destiny. That someone and that something is Jesus Christ and the Word of God. Through Christ you can be delivered from the ways of the world. Through Christ you can come out of that addiction. Through Christ you can come out of that depression. Through Christ you can be delivered from your past. Through Christ you can get rid of all your fears, your doubts, and anxiety. You as a young person can come out of whatever is hindering you and keeping you from reaching your full potential, keeping you from walking in the blessings that God has for you. You do it by living according to His Word. You’ve done it your way all these years and you’re still stuck in that same place. Make the change today and put your life in Christ hands and allow God and His perfect, true, and living Word to govern and navigate your life so you can finally get on and stay on the path of purity and become all that God has called you to be.
11 “This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you, and it is not beyond your reach. 12 It is not kept in heaven, so distant that you must ask, ‘Who will go up to heaven and bring it down so we can hear it and obey?’ 13 It is not kept beyond the sea, so far away that you must ask, ‘Who will cross the sea to bring it to us so we can hear it and obey?’14 No, the message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart so that you can obey it.
