The Church in America is fighting an uphill battle to win the youth in our homes, congregations and communities to Jesus Christ. Parents, Pastors and Youth Leaders are facing the giants of Public Education, Music, Gaming, Movies, Television and Fashion industries who are defying Biblical values to negatively shape the minds of our children. But, I’m so glad that as moms, dads, youth workers and local church leaders we serve a God who specializes in defeating giants!
Travyon Martin, Mike Brown and many other unsung children in America’s cities, towns and communities are becoming victims of a society that is increasingly indifferent toward the holistic needs of the most vulnerable and dependent. Our children are crying out for caring adults who will take the time to point them toward the purpose of God.
You have been praying and asking The Lord why you went through the things that you went through as a child. It’s because God knew you could handle responsibility of your struggle even though it seemed like it would break you. You are still standing and now you are perfectly equipped through the Holy Spirit to speak life into a child, teenager or young adult who may be experiencing the same kind of pain and confusion.
The youth of this generation are not our enemies. They are our mission!
