I sent out my weekly devotional this morning. The message today is dear to my heart. You can find it here. Go ahead and subscribe while you’re checking it out. You know you want to???
The words “for this generation” keep coming to my mind. For over a week, it seems every day I’m reminded about “this generation” either through scripture, song or words spoken.
This is a great generation. A generation that is full of incredible technologies to spread the Word and touch people’s hearts. But this is also a generation that is continually being challenged spiritually with the pressures of today’s society and technology. We are a generation that can be connected to people all over the world in seconds. Yet, we are a very mobile generation that doesn’t have family nearby in most cases.
This generation is not just us; it’s our kids, as well as our grandkids to come. Yes, these are very different times from when my parents grew up or even when I grew up. Realizing this is a different generation leaves me wondering what I am doing to reach them.
Am I speaking their language or am I so far out of this “world” that I’m no longer relatable? Do I look approachable or present the feeling that I’m too busy for another?
I was blown away yesterday as I went to church where my son leads worship. These young worship leaders are kids sold out for reaching their generation. Their music, their dress, their hearts messages all screamed JESUS! Not only has God gifted these students with incredible talents, but also with a heart that longs to bring others closer to Christ.
My heart sang and cried all at the same time. It was so powerful – not only praising God with a young generation, but realizing these kids are leading their generation to the throne of God in their language, their way, their style.
I’m left wondering – what am I doing to reach this generation? Does my hearts message scream JESUS?
I’m amazed at how God longs to reach this generation through you and me for future generations!
