Young Lions
By Gail Keffer

A study of the people in the Bible shows that God is able to use people of all ages, and all degrees of faith. He can use the small child, the old widow or widower. He can use the young man on the street, the girl on a basketball team, the young mother who is struggling, and the grandfather who steps in and is there for a grandchild. Many of the people who chose to follow Christ were young and served for many years as they sought to carry out the will of God. Some were in the Old Testament, and some were in the New Testament. Wherever they were, they had a strong faith that would not be daunted. They are still in the world today. They may have different names, and different colors of skin, but they are the same - people with enough faith to move mountains, to show the way for those struggling in life.Today God calls us to serve as these people did. We aren't asked to go to the extremes of endangering our lives, but we are called to stand up for our beliefs, to minister to and care for others.Some of these young lions and lioness in the Bible were Timothy, Jonah, David, Miriam, Esther, Paul, and Daniel, Shadrach, Meshack, and Abednego.
