I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 1 John 2:14
This time of young men is the overcoming time. I pray tell me, was David an old man when he slew Goliath? Was Joseph an old man when refused and overcame the temptation of his mistress? Were Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego old persons when they resisted and overcame the temptation of the king?
