The Next Generation

2 05 2006

When God promised Abraham the land of Cannan He said Abrahams 4th generation would come back to possess the land. From that time until the 4th generation came into the land of Cannan Abrahams seed would go through bondage in Egypt, The Red Sea, and The Wilderness. One generation would serve the Lord and another would not.

I was listening to the radio today as I drove home from work and heard a women talking about a study she had done about the youth in our country. It as amazing to hear that the third generation of families who had immigrated to the United States had higher high school drop out rates, higher gang involvement, and higher teen pregnacy rates than others. Families that came to the US searching for a better life for their family wanting to experience the freedoms that we enjoy and wanting to give there children so much more than they had.

But the third generation of those people do not have the vision that the parents had. The third generation lost the vision of their forefathers and has turned away from the dream of a better life.

Saddly today so many Christians have lost the vision that there parents had for them. They are turning away from living their life for God and turning to a life of sin.

But, God is looking for a generation that will stand up and take on the giants in the land. A generation that will answer the call. A Generation that will stand in the gap and reach out to a lost and dying world.
