Even to your old age . . .
I am he who will sustain you.
C.S. Lewis resisted conversion until midway in his life, yet became the greatest apologist of his generation, writing over thirty books defending Christianity—all of which remain in print fifty-nine years after his death. He said, “You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.”
God has a place and priesthood for every age.
To Timothy, Paul said, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young” (1 Tm 4:12).
And at the other end of the age chart, this word of God: “Even to your old age and gray hairs . . . I am he who will sustain you” (Is 46:4). “They will still bear fruit in old age” (Ps 92:14).
There are limitations imposed by advanced years, but God has not decreed a mandatory retirement age.
You’re only old once.
Make the most of it.
