Section Three: Young Adult

Section Three: Young Adult

13b] "I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one..."

14b] "I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one."

 

As we grow in our faith, John highlights three general characteristics of a young man (adult) in the faith. The three characteristic are:

  • They have overcome the evil one--v. 13;
  • They are strong--v. 14b; and
  • The Word of God lives in them--v. 14b.

Therefore, if we desire to grow up in our spiritual lives, it is wise that we mimic these three characteristics as well. This third section of the School of Discipleship is focused on that goal.
