Now for my own thought about middle age. This is the time of your life when you can be most effective for Jesus and his church. You have a lot of experience that you can use to disciple others, and you probably have some energy left to do just that.
The apostle Paul was probably middle-aged when he wrote these words—“He (Jesus) is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.” (Col.1:28-29).
