Is This the Generation?
By Ron BoehmeMore than 100 years ago a praying Student Volunteer Movement thrust 100,000 young people into the forefront of missions. Will God do it again? Today’s students receive many messages about life. They are told to be themselves, have fun, and care about the planet. But do we really connect today’s kids with the reason they are here? Today’s students were born for a purpose. That purpose and mission is Christ’s Great Commission—as yet uncompleted. This generation is uniquely poised to do it for several reasons:
- Others have set the stage.
- Technology has made the world reachable.
- The final global strongholds are falling.
- Just possibly they were born for “such a time as this” (Esther 4:14).
