    books for young people are available that are interesting and instructive

  • Personal meditation - striving to personally think about God and His Word, and your relationship and obedience to Him. Sunday, especially, offers time for this. Think about yourself -about how to improve your weaknesses and failures, and how to better use your strengths to serve God and others
  • Personal Prayer - seeking to bring your confessions, needs, thanksgivings, and praises to God in prayer both for yourself and others, is crucial. Sunday, especially, provides an excellent time for this. Pray especially that the Lord might graciously convert your heart, and conform your will, making you submissive to His will
  • Personal activities - In addition to reading, meditating, and prayer, some possibilities would include:

      - Reading a Bible or religious story to younger brothers or sisters

      - Studying a certain question, truth, or portion of Scripture

      - Participating in young people's discussions and singing opportunities

      - Discussing religious concerns with your parents or other close friends

      - Preparing a presentation for your youth group or school mission club

      - Keeping a journal in which you record the various scriptural truths and applications you learned or were impressed with in church or school in the past week. This is an excellent meditational help

      - Reaching out to various needy people; write a letter to a widow or widower you know or someone who is lonely or hospitalized

      - Thinking of ways you can help one of your classmates or fellow employees with a particular need they might have

Whatever you do, do not allow your Sundays to become boring days with nothing to do! Also, do not use your Sundays for

 

If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on My holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour Him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

- Isaiah 58:13-14
