God still chooses mentors and mentees, disciplers and disciples for His kingdom work. Our Savior and Lord still calls men and women, boys and girls to become preachers, ministers of all kinds, and He still calls people to become missionaries for the Gospel all around the world. But don’t you think that they need mentors and disciplers? Many of you right now are mentoring and discipling the future Bible teachers, preachers, and missionaries of tomorrow because you are teaching children and youth whom God will call one day, if He hasn’t already. If you will give it all you have and provide a great foundation for those children and youth then God will take over at some point and do whatever is next for that called person, young or old.
Have you identified anyone you are leading now as a potential of the Lord’s?
Have you considered talking to them about the calling that might be on their life?
If you will be available, like Barnabas was, you might be called on by the Lord to disciple the next Paul or Timothy.
Who is your ONE? Is it a child that you believe God is calling to minister for Him in His kingdom? That is a special ONE! Please don’t take it lightly. Some of you might say, “God will never call a child or youth out of our church, not our church. We are nothing and that just won’t happen.” Remember what people said about Jesus, “Can anything good come from Nazareth?”
Maybe you need to be praying for our children and youth that God will touch our young ones for His kingdom’s work. Won’t you do that today?
Maybe there is an adult you need to be praying for that needs discipling and you just have to talk to them about it. We don’t know what God will do with people when they have been given a great foundation.
Will you commit to praying for our youth and children for God to use them in all kinds of ways that will glorify Him.
