To Really Live…
The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
This is one of my favorite stories in all of Scripture. There is something so profound and yet simple about the sweet jailer and his desire to know the Lord. The Message paraphrase says “What must I do to be saved … to really live?” That is the most important question anyone can ask of a follower of Jesus.
What does it mean to really live? Those of us who have our faith in Jesus know that real living only exists when we abide in the love and grace of Jesus Christ. When we attempt a life without that firm foundation, we will always fall short of the “real living” God designed and desired for us.
This week, we focus on the Next Generation and God’s design for generational impact as well as Calvary’s heart to see the future generations raised up in power to lead the world to Jesus. We have all seen the effects of the world’s sin and its destructive impact, especially in the younger generations. Join me as we focus on how we can be sure to raise up the next generation for the Lord!
Final Thought: The Next Generation needs us now more than ever!
