And he hath put a new song into my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:3
Dear fellow Christian teens,
None of us know when King Jesus is coming to get us. While we’re still here, we have the opportunity to inspire as many souls as we can, so that they might be saved and reconciled with our God. We may be young, but we can already glorify God. We may be inexperienced, but we have fire inside us. There is something we can do. We can sing Him a new song.
Not all of us are exactly singers (some of us sing like ducks being trodden on), yet there is something we can do: we can write. And we know there are many of us out there, young people burning for their King, seeking to glorify Him through the written word and the narrative.
Jesus Himself told parables, small stories that helped to illustrate mighty themes. Stories as short as that of the Good Shepherd and the prodigal son are still powerful enough to break hearts open. Perhaps our fiction can be strong enough to touch them.
A New Song: Short Stories by Christian Teens for God’s Glory is one way we teens can glorify our God and perhaps touch a few lives in the process. Initiated in 2015 by two seventeen-year-olds, A New Song was written, edited, illustrated, and published solely by teenagers on fire for their God. The anthology is available as a Kindle book here.
