SAT-7 Easter Devotional A Four-Part Blog Series Reflecting Themes from SAT-7's Devotional Titled "This Is Love"

Let's continue our series on the theme "This is Love" by looking at our second group of the four different people groups and their relationships. We'll observe this group in the context of Middle Eastern and North African culture and look at how you can join with SAT-7 in proclaiming God's love to this group this Easter.

Part 2: Young people

"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
Young people in the Middle East and North Africa face enormous pressure growing up in war-torn regions that are filled with conflict, political changes, economic instability, and division across religions and ethnicity. A sense of hopelessness for their future is widespread among young people. Those who are bold and live out their faith are in the minority in these regions.

About 65% of the population of the Middle East is under age 30.

One of the largest challenges for young people in the region is youth unemployment, which has been at a constant 25% for the past decade.

Navigating the transition to adulthood raises many insecurities and new life challenges that were not present in childhood.

SAT-7 is helping by providing young adult audiences with a Christian-based outlook on these varying issues in an engaging way. A few SAT-7 programs that do this are titled Power Bank (produced in partnership with Lutheran Hour Ministries), Let Me Tell You the Truth, and 4:12 (based on 1 Timothy 4:12).

Join with us in prayer

Pray for the young people in the region, that through the challenges they face, they will find wise guidance which will enable them to put their trust in God and place their hearts and hopes in His hands. Pray that those under pressure for their faith will have the courage to display Christ's love to those around them.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
