Living Now with the Training in View

As a young person, now is the time to consecrate your life to the Lord and to give the Training your priority over other objectives.

“Give yourself to love the Lord. No other way is so prevailing, and no other way is so safe, so rich, and so full of enjoyment. Just love Him.” Witness Lee, Life and Building as Portrayed in the Song of Songs, Ch. 2

Focus on your education and obtain a degree from a university. Seize the precious opportunity to develop your mind, character, and study skills while in high school and tertiary education. Additionally, the study of a foreign language and computer skills will enhance your future usefulness.

Sanctify your lifestyle from worldliness, maintain good health, and thoroughly immerse yourself in the church life and campus work wherever you are. This will help you enter into the Training in a full way.
