A Letter to Millennial Believers

 

Dear Millennial,

I know you are often poorly misrepresented. You have grown up in a generation where much has changed. You have been characterized by your taste in clothes, coffee, and a list of many other things. Your parents have done their best to prevent you from experiencing the same hardships they did, so they went overboard and made sure you had a lot of, if not everything, you wanted. Many of you grew up in broken homes and knew hardships that were not as prevalent in previous generations. On the down side, many of you grew up where dysfunction is normal and you truly want something better. Some of you know how to fight through life and rise above, while others of you don’t know how to cope when you get knocked down.

I want to be your advocate. Not the guy who looks at you and sees a generation of spoiled brats, but someone who looks at you and sees a ton of potential. Pertaining to the Christian life, you possess some qualities that I wish I saw in previous generations.

  1. You possess a passion for something real. You don’t want anything to do with Christ because He is a “societal or cultural norm”. You want something that is going to change your life.

  2. You don’t want dead religion. When you go to a weekend worship service, you want to engage. You want to clap and lift your hands. You want to hear from someone who knows how to engage you. You want something that applies to your life so you can know how to live your faith throughout the week.

  3. You’re not as shallow as everyone thinks. While you may be attracted to more modern methodology, you appreciate some depth and even historical demonstrations of faith. You want in-depth conversations and want to know more about Scripture than everyone else says you do.

  4. You are more interested in being the church than going to church. While some criticize you for that, you are being much more biblical than they. You have a desire to obey the Great Commission that is found at the end of Matthew 28.

There is so much more I could say to you. You are the generation that could see revival if you were only given a voice. Many are trying to silence you while I, and many others, seek to empower you. Don’t let negative people discourage you! Pursue your God-given dreams! If it is not of God, you’ll know it. If you find resistance the first time, fight it with persistence. While others are settling for mediocrity, rise above it and achieve great things. If I can help you, don’t hesitate to contact me.

P.S. (from bruce)  It’s true !!  As brand new believers, so many of us were on fire for the Lord !!  We couldn’t get enough of God, as we sought to learn as much about the Lord as we could…  Has your fire dwindled to hot ashes, or worse…almost snuffed out ??  I urge anyone not currently “on Fire” for the Lord, who has been filled with the Holy Spirit by God’s grace alone through saving faith alone…to buy and read this book… “Forgotten God” by Francis Chan”…  It is perhaps the best book I have read, written in this day and age… (Nothing can compare to God’s perfect Word !!)   Blessings in Christ,  bruce
