They have not yet learned to live not for themselves but for Him who died and rose again for them.
And yet to them we bring the call to offer themselves to live entirely for Christ.
We ask them whether they are not ashamed of the selfish life that simply uses Christ as a convenient escape from hell and to secure a place in heaven.
We come to them with the assurance that God can change their lives and fill their hearts with Christ and His Holy Spirit.
We plead with them to believe that with God all things are possible.
He is eager to restore them to the joy of the Father’s presence and service.
