They say that many of the youth are not following Christ as they move into adulthood. It is an epidemic. Why?
One reason is that we have lost sight of our mission. Our mission needs to be what Jesus' mission was. He came to seek and save the lost. He did many other good things along the way: He healed people, fed people, etc. And he left us with the instructions to do the same.
Yet, we have strayed from this simple mission. A home that is not reaching out to seek and save the lost is unfruitful. That unfruitfulness can trickle down to the youngest member of the household. A generation of believers that do not try to reach their family, friends, community and world for Christ will find themselves losing their children as well.
We need to focus. We need to learn the skills of sharing Christ with others! Saving the world is saving our children, too!
