What's the most important question every teenager should ask themselves? Is it - "what kind of job will I have in the future or even right now"? Or is the most important question - "who will I marry?" Maybe "where will I live?" All of these are important questions, but they are not the most important questions in the light of eternity. Jesus, God's Son asked one of the most important questions ever asked; "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" and "who do you say that I am?"

Go ahead, ask yourself that question: Who is Jesus Christ to you? Why is this question so important? For this reason - YOUR WHOLE ETERNITY REST UPON YOUR ANSWER TO THIS ONE QUESTION! There is only ONE correct answer and the apostle Peter gave it in the gospel of Matthew 16:16 "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Peter said, you Jesus - are the "Christ", which in the Jewish understanding was the Messiah, the Anointed One of God. The "Christ" was the One who would take away man's sins and give man access to a Holy God. Peter also said, "you are the Son of the living God." Peter's answer acknowledged that Jesus was in fact God, God the Son. Jesus was not just some good man that said some clever things. No! Jesus WAS God's Son, sent to Die for our sins on the Cross.

Well, what happens if you answer "who is Jesus Christ" with; "just a man", "not the only way to God", or a prophet, but not someone who could take away my sins"? Jesus Himself gives us the answer to what will happen if we don't believe with all our heart that Jesus is God the Son, the Lamb of God who died for our sins on the Cross -John 8:24 "you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." To die in your sins means you die unforgiving. Jesus also said in John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." Simply put, THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY to HEAVEN! You must believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins and that He is the Son of God. Do you believe that?

What's the most important question to ask yourself if you're saved already. You might be thinking, "I'm already born again, so what is my most important question in my life?" Praise the Lord if you are already saved by trusting in Jesus Christ alone and not in your good works or anything else, because only Jesus alone can save you from God's eternal punishment.

Let's first start by asking questions that are very important, but they are NOT the MOST important questions: Who will I marry? What kind of job will I have in life? Where will I live? etc. etc. These are VERY important questions, but they are not the MOST important.

Here is the Most important question that Teens need to ask themselves: "WHAT DOES GOD WANT ME TO DO WITH MY LIFE?" To often most people ask, "what do I want to do with MY life?" Here's something of great importance that each and every Christian should understand, YOUR LIFE BELONGS TO GOD! Read the following passages: 1Cor. 6:19 & 20 "Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's." 1Cor. 6:13 "Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord" also, 2Cor. 5:15 " and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again." If you are a Christian teen, you need to think about your life in the light of this question: "what does God want ME to do?"

Obviously, while you're still living with your parents, some of these questions have already been answered in God's word (ie: God wants you to obey and respect your parents. God want you to obey Him. Teens often make Grand plans for their future without asking the MOST IMPORTANT Person in the life what He wants of them. Yes, that's right, what does God desire of my life? Now this may seem like such a huge sacrifice and a giant step of trust to give your whole earthly future to God, but haven't you done that already with your eternal life. You say you're a Christian, so that means you're already trusting God to forgive you of all your sins and get you to Heaven when the time comes. Teens need to learn to give their life to God in all the small areas first. Yes, right now in your life, begin serving God. Start yielding to the Lord where you're at NOW, so when you get to the Big question of "what do you want me to do with my life Lord" you be accustomed to asking God and giving your life to Him.

So where do you get the answers for Specific directions in life? Let me give you a few sources that you NEED to depend on and all three of these are Needed, you should not leave even one source out:

First, God's Word, know it, read it, believe it. Proverbs 3:6 "In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path."

Second, your parents know you better than anyone else and they have been (hopefully) directing you in the way you should go. So you need to ask their advice for direction.

Thirdly, other counselors, beginning with your pastor or youth leader, godly friends, relatives with godly insight and others that care about you from a spiritual perspective.

Finally, the advice of your godly parents combined with wisdom from God's word should carry the most weight in your decision.

So go ahead and ask - "What does God want me to do with my life that belongs to HIM?"
