The Millennials

The Reality
I recently read an article by Thom Rainer of LifeWay, in which he discussed the generation from form 1980-1991- The Millennials. As America's largest generation, this generation represents also the greatest lostness in relationship to a personal faith in Jesus. Of the 80 million in this generation, only 15 percent have a relationship with the Savior, Jesus Christ.(Romans 10:9-11).

The Hope
We serve a mighty God and His Word is true and sure. The 68 million who are opportunities for witnessing, should first bring us to our knees and then to our feet. Our generation must confess the sin of silence and begin sharing Jesus without fear. They won't know unless we tell.

The Challenge
Our next Share Jesus Without Fear classes begin August 22 & 25, 2010. You can register by clicking here. Join the 30+ others at Anderson Mill who recently completed the last Share Jesus Without Fear class. Don't wait. Millions are waiting to hear.

Making a Difference!

We've been learning how to share Jesus with people we meet. Today I met a couple of people in a business. I wondered how the conversation might flow as I prayed for an opportunity to share Jesus with them. The person who helped me was willing to share about their weekend and I didn't see how to make an opening for spiritual conversation. The other person, however, was the key. I suppose this person was the manager. "We get a lot of churches on Monday," they said. I saw the door open and I asked the question, "Where do you go to church when you get a Sunday off?" "I go the church of golf," the one said. "I guess the 'Green Family" needs religion too," I countered. The other person didn't go at all to church and didn't seem interested in continuing this conversation.

I'm sure I'll have other opportunities to share with the one and certainly pray for the other. The "golfer" did say they had been to AMBC a few times for special community events.

Are you ready when the opportunity comes? Others are counting on it.
