Colombia Update #3

2018-03-29

First, we call adults of all ages to become men and women of the Book. Like Josiah, we want them to receive and respond to God's Word.

Second, we exhort all generations to value and celebrate other generations—especially Millennials. We create an environment for the Holy Spirit to reconcile the generations. At the end of Session 3 which is called Generations, we divide the group in half by age. Then we ask the younger adults to go to the older adults and thank them for their faithfulness and sacrifice. Tears often flow freely at this point as the older adults feel appreciated and honored. Then we ask the older adults to place their hands on the younger adults and ask God to bless their lives and ministries. Often many of the younger adults also start crying as they feel valued and affirmed for the first time in a long time. It's a high and holy moment when the Spirit's presence and power are undeniable.

I've seen God's Spirit use this simple invitation to bring reconciliation in the United States, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. But how would people from all over the Hispanic world respond here in Colombia? What if this risky idea bombs and all our trainees lose confidence in this new teaching resource?

Since I've already described the process, I will let these pictures speak for themselves.

Once again God exceeded my expectations and rebuked my lack of faith! Why am I so quick to doubt Him? Will I ever truly trust Him for supernatural results rather than trying to control the outcome of my teaching? I long for the personal breakthrough Billy Graham experienced early in his ministry.

So how about you? Any shift God would have you make in your attitudes and actions toward other generations? What tangible change does He want you to make? Are you willing to reach out to those closest to you, and pursue reconciliation?

I warn you. I've seen our gracious Lord work miracles all over the world, so don't be surprised if does something big in your own church, business, or home!
