The New Generation

Recently, I became addicted to Twitter. I have had an account for several years, but I finally decided to be a little more active. My discoveries have been encouraging.

Many younger people are immediately labeled as snowflakes who buy into this socialistic idea that everyone deserves free everything at the expense of someone else. I have discovered that many of our high school and college students who post on Twitter have a much better handle on reality than many of our politicians. I won’t say any more about that.

Another discovery is that these young men and women possess a deep love for Christ. I’m not saying everyone that age does, but I am encountering many who are passionate about worship and service. They don’t take Christianity lightly. They want to know the power of His resurrection AND the fellowship of His sufferings. They are not afraid to take a stand and get slammed on a public platform. If this doesn’t encourage you, you may want to go to a doctor or check up on your salvation.

I was disturbed for several years because of the little yearning I saw for God among our younger generation. There is a revival spreading. They don’t want religion. They want the power of the Holy Spirit. They want authentic Christian community.

So before you go labeling everyone, look around. You won’t have to look hard for a generation whose heart beats after God.

  1. Bahahaha! I mostly use my Twitter to yell at people who have blocked me, pastors mostly! No, I jest, it’s really not that bad, but I have noticed that those who holler about snowflakes the loudest, seem to be real snowflakes themselves. And I suppose there’s a good lesson in that, what we dislike so much is others are often the very same things in ourselves that remain unresolved.

    Kids these day are looking for authenticity, for some hands on experience with the love of Jesus. They’ve grown up seeing scandals and pastors with private jets and so they don’t trust the surface level stuff, the wrapping paper.
