We cannot overstate the importance of young people!
We need to invest in the younger generation, and I am leading our church in this effort.
Take a moment to think on these few verses. Notice the difference!
Psalm 71:18 “So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.”
Exodus 13:8 “You shall tell your son on that day ‘It is because of what the LORD did for me.'”
Judges 2:10 “All that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done for Israel.”
Yesterday, April 2, 2017, I preached a message from Mark 10 on “The Importance of Young People.” You can listen to that message here.
In this message, I talk about the priority of BRINGING kids to Jesus; the problem with NOT BRINGING kids to Jesus and Jesus therefore REBUKING us; and the reward of kids BELONGING to Jesus. There is nothing more important than teaching young people about God!
In this message, I also mentioned a similar sermon that I preached a couple years ago. That message was from 2 Timothy 2:2 and called “Why all the emphasis on Young People?” You can listen to that message here.
In this message, I talk about the REACH, the REALITY, the RISK and the REWARD of investing in Young People.
I hope and pray that you will listen to these messages and that God will move you to invest in the next generation!
