If we walk in the light, as God is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.  1 John 1: 7.

Our challenge is to help the next generation find Christ, their true Christian identity and their spiritual home.
 
Psalm 78: 4, 6, 7 -We will not hide the “things from of old” from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. So the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. 
 
The next generation is waiting to be touched by the gospel.
The challenge for those in leadership is to set an example to be fully, totally committed to our Lord. Our challenge is to touch their lives and commitment by receiving the Lord Jesus personally and being filled with the Holy Spirit.
 
Imagine the youth waiting for us, the church of God, their parents and their grandparents, to be touched by God, to be touched by Jesus. What will happen if I am not introducing my children to what matters here and now, and eternally? What will happen if I do not touch their lives, pray with them and they have to enter adult life having no one to show them how to receive Jesus as Saviour and Lord and live the grateful life of a child of God?
 
There is a generation yet unborn, waiting for someone to touch their destiny with the love of God. There is a generation waiting for someone to befriend them, and reach them with the Gospel. What if we are the only ones they have who are able to reach them for Christ and the Kingdom of God?
 
The psalmist clearly says in Psalm 78 – “So the next generation would know the hidden treasures of old, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.
