How do I see God at work in my generation?

Written by Raegan Feuerbacher
 

I have several friends that I follow on social media that are doing some real kingdom work. There’s a girl I graduated with who is going to Europe this summer to do mission work. There are other people I know who are graduating from the school of ministry at a local church here in Southern Indiana. They’re taking Matthew 28:19-20 seriously and they are fired UP about Jesus. It has to be one of the most amazing things to watch. I may not be close friends with each of them, but their lives are an inspiration. God is at work in this generation. How are they doing this?

 

I think we can get caught up in all of the negatives that come with having social media. There are a lot of them. Just the other night at dinner with friends, we were discussing how different life is now because we’re all on our screens. People can say whatever they want because they’ll never have to say it to someone’s face. It can be exhausting. You know what I’m talking about. There are a lot of pros and cons that come with social media and I am not here to debate them. It’s a significant part of our lives today whether we want to admit it or not. One of the biggest pros about it is that we can easily share things with people. Now, that can be good or it can be bad. What I see in my generation though, is that people are using it for good. Their captions and posts reflect their relationship with Jesus. They’re not pushing Jesus on people; they’re sharing about Him unashamed. They are sharing how He is working in their lives and the excitement and passion they have about their calling is palpable. The love they have for people is plainly visible.

 

We live in a culture where we are being encouraged to live our lives without letting the judgment of others bring us down. I wish more people treated sharing the Gospel that way. It can be hard not to think about what others might say. Many people have been hurt by the church, so they may be hard hearted towards Christians. What is a way you can tell and show people about Jesus without saying a word? Love them. Show people you love them. It’s not our place to judge other people. We aren’t God, and we never will be. 

 

I see God at work in my generation by the love that we are giving other people. For me, I will give and give and give until it runs me dry. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I see people unashamedly sharing the love they have for Jesus Christ, and they are sharing that love with other people. They are living and breathing the greatest commandment we’ve ever been given. John 13:34, “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.”
