Why you need this to be a World Changer

  1. God will not work in us or through us if we do not believe He can.
    Now He could do no mighty work there … and He marveled because of their unbelief. Mark 6:5-6
  2. Our faith is the power that can overcome the world.
    For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? I John 5:4-5

God Can and Will use you If you let Him

  1. God used:
    • DAVID to defeat the Philistines and bring honor to Israel and God.
      (I Samuel 17)
    • ESTHER to bring deliverance to the Jews. (Esther 4:14)
    • DANIEL to witness to a mighty king. (Daniel 6:25-27)
    • MARY to bring forth the Savior of the world. (Luke 1:26-35)

    These people were all Teenagers!

  2. What God does through us is determined by our Faith.
    I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20

Steps to Moving Mountains

  1. You have to be able to communicate with God.
    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17
  2. You have to be a person of integrity.
    For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. I Samuel 16:7
  3. You have to be bold in your stand for God.
    " Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak your word … and when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness." Acts 4:29, 31
  4. You have to live a committed life before God.
    The He (Jesus) said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. Luke 9:23
  5. You have to be involved now.
    For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Galatians 5:13
  6. You have to have a vision for the world.
    But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the His harvest." Matthew 9:36-38

One Last Thought

God wants to use you to do mighty things while you are here on the earth, but you have to believe that He will. Now, while you are a teenager is the best time to let God use you.
Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the years draw near when you say, "I have no pleasure in them."
Ecclesiastes 12:1
