Arise, O younger generation, Arise

A call to us, the younger generation, have been issued. The question now is, what are we going to do about it?

As I was seeking the Lord about what to share over the anniversary weekend, the only thing that the Holy Spirit impressed upon my heart was Malachi 4:5-6.

“Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.”

As I read this, the urgent necessity of our response as a younger generation hit me hard. The fathers of our land, our parents, the elders, their hearts will turn and have been turning to their children, but as a younger generation, we need to intentionally make that active decision to turn our hearts to our fathers. This is a necessity and it’s fundamental in the family. We as a younger generation need to Honour the generations before us. And it can’t just simply be empty words or lip service. It needs to come forth in our genuine actions.

And as a church body, we know that we’ve been marked to magnify. We know that we need to make disciples that make disciples. We know that as a church, we have an apostolic calling.

But for us to do all of that, we need strong families that are grounded in His word. Strong families whose hearts are turned towards each other and aligned with the Father above. Because Discipleship truly begins at home. It needs to happen internally within our families before it happens externally with the people around us.

So to us, the younger generation, let’s make the intentional effort to turn our hearts to our fathers. Let’s bridge the man made gaps and connect heart to heart. This is fundamental in our families and it’s a necessity for such a time as this.

Pray:
1. We as a Generation, choose to repent of our old ways and turn our hearts to our parents and to the generations before us.
2. As your word says in exodus 20:12: “Honour your Father and Mother so that you may live Long in the land your God is giving to you.” Father, we choose to do so intentionally.
3. Let Honour be established in our families and let our families be turned towards each other and aligned with you.
4. We thank you for who you are to us and who we are to you. Let us your children arise to do your will for such a time as this.

Let us arise because we are marked to magnify.

    2 days ago A big party went down for 48 kids at the Betesda orphanage in Batam last Saturday! They were treated to a homecooked Nasi Lemak feast, played Christmas story games, sang carols, and each child received a school bag as a Christmas present. ❤️ This wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of our 15 volunteers, and the hospitality of our friends at Betesda orphanage. Thank you! . . . .  #markedtomagnify   #Godslittleones   #fgasingapore   #Christmas

    4 days ago  #aboutlastweekend : Jason Wong shared his journey behind the founding of the Yellow Ribbon Project, which promotes second chances for ex-offenders. The premise of his message, which was to 'look for the sparkle' in others, reminds us that God never fails to see the sparkle in us first, and so we can do the same for others.  #fgasingapore
