Why Not Now? Teen Group Bible Study by Mark Matlock.

Like most of the rest of us, Christian students tend to set the bar too low for themselves, especially when it comes to actively following Jesus. This 6-week Bible study curriculum and Leader's Guide (sold separately) will challenge students to accept the mission to live like Jesus now, not later, by telling the stories of adolescents from the Bible and in modern life who did -- and are doing -- significant and amazing things in the world and for the God who saves.

In a society where cultural adolescence is lingering into the 30s, it's no wonder Christian students often fail to confront the call to act meaningfully on their faith in Christ. It's easy to package that commitment with big ideas like picking a college, a spouse, and a career -- and then to never quite get around to it. God, however, posts no minimum age on discipleship, and his book contains several examples of younger people both willing and able -- in his power -- to do extraordinarily difficult and necessary things with their lives for him.

Why Not Now?, by Mark Matlock, shares stories from the young lives of Miriam, Joseph, David, Solomon, Daniel, and Mary to find why and how they said yes to God before they would have been old enough to rent a car in our modern society. All six of these people believed God could use their lives to do something that mattered. What is holding us back? By looking at those stories, along with those taken from modern spiritual role models, we can learn how to break the cycle of procrastination and dedicate our lives sooner rather than later.

Mark Matlock has been working with youth pastors, students, and parents for more than two decades. He's the Executive Director of Youth Specialties and founder of WisdomWorks Ministries and PlanetWisdom. He's the author of several books including The Wisdom On series, Living a Life That Matters, Don't Buy the Lie, and Raising Wise Children. Mark lives in Texas with his wife, Jade, and their two teenage children.
