“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all…” (1 Tim 2:3-6). This applies to everyone, including our young adults.

James 5:17 says, “therefore, confess your sins one to another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”
