Welcome to 2012 - He's Calling a New Generation!
“Who has done such mighty deeds, summoning each new generation from the beginning of time?” Isaiah 41:4
When I was 22 years old, my pastor asked to meet with me. My pastor was almost 70 years old and had served God faithfully his whole life. He had ministered in many churches along with working throughout the U.S. as a traveling evangelist. He was very gifted and I considered him my spiritual mentor.
I was just about to graduate from college and was heading out that summer to Indiana to begin my seminary education.
The day we met, he simply told me that his time for serving God was almost over. His health was eroding. And if the Lord didn’t come soon, he was not long for this earth.
Then he looked directly at me and said, “It’s now your turn.”
He was passing the ministry baton to me, the New Generation.
God is always calling a New Generation to serve Him. Sometimes it seems that with the world getting worse by the day, maybe one time there will be no one to take the ministry baton to carry the message of Christ forward. But this will never be! God always has His New Generation ministry squad in training. There will always be a New Generation of leaders to fight the good fight who will finish the course and keep the faith.
So, who at Sunrise in this New Year of 2012 is part of the New Generation who will take the ministry baton?
