I think Something Needs to be Done
Something needs to be done to strengthen the body of Christ. Something needs to be done to help Christians in America underestand the personal relationship they have with Christ. Something needs to be done so that young men won't disappear from the church as soon as they get confirmed. Something needs to be done so that young people won't feel like being confirmed is some obligation that they have, something they do because it is required of them, something they do to please their parents. Something needs to be done so they can realize that coming together at church for worship or Sunday school or Bible study is a remarkable blessing and privelage. They need to be lit on fire! Something needs to be done to bring young people together as a family in Christ so that they feel connected to the larger group and know that they're loved. Something needs to be done so that the church in America would stop shrinking as the church grows overseas. The Gospel has yet to be declared to all the nations, but gains are being made. But we're losing ground in the United States, which saddens me deeply. Something needs to be done. I have ideas, but I don't know if I'm the one to execute them. I just pray that God would lead someone to minister to these young people. I pray that God's will is the something that is done.
