George Whitfield, how old are you? 22? Preach the gospel in the open air? Seat down!
Martin Luther, do you really think you can stand up to the most powerfull institution in the world, the holy catholic church and youâ€™re not yet 30! Seat down!
William Carry, you say to me expect great things from God attempt great things for God, What at your age? You need to listen to that rebuke that older brother gave you, do you remember what he said to you, he said young man sit down, sit down! Youâ€™re an enthusiast. When God pleases to convert the heathen he will do it without your aid or mine!
Adoniram Judson, how old are you!? Your just 23! And you gone sail across the other side of the world! To a region that no one knows about, and your going to preach the gospel to those people are you!? And youâ€™re going to take your wife with you? Think of the danger! Seat down! Settle down,
Jim Elliot, with your gift you can do anything! But donâ€™t throw it all away on the Quechua Indians!
Jonathan, a young man impressed with the reality of God, who takes God at his word. Why does Saul sit and Jonathan go? Just one reason, faith! Saul lives by sight, what does his eyes tell him, that the problems are insurmountable, there is nothing to be done so he goes and seats down. Jonathan too has eyes but he doesnâ€™t live by them, he lives by faith. The God he cannot see is more real to him than the difficulties he can seeâ€¦.

Great Preaching! Thanks for the encouraging message. I understand that there is a time for maturation, but at the same time let's not delay the work that God has called us to. Thanks for the preaching brother, encouraging.

Great Sermon! They're MEN who are 35+ living with MOM! I believe FEMINISM has DESTROYED MEN.. most Christian young women want to marry and settle down BUT these guys are like 13-14 year old boys!
When you destroy men, women are gone too, i dont care if she is a MARINE or using the marines as a 'career' instead of being a homemaker and mom

Great Sermon! This message got me fired up as I prepared to speak to the teens at my church! This is what we all need to see...it takes our obedient faith!
YES! Holy Recklessness! That's exactly what the passage is and the sermon hits it right on.
Solid and Motivational! Wow! A great call to action. A plan of attack for the idle 25-35 year old christians.
