Every generation gets a chance to change the world
Pity the nation that won't listen to your boys and girls
'Cos the sweetest melody is the one we haven't heard
Is it true the perfect love drives out all fear?
U2's song crazy tonight makes a great point. Every generation has a chance to change the world. When I first heard Bono sing these words I was really convicted and challenged. I started to think about what my generation would be known for. Would it be our obsession with Baggalini bags or our appearance, or would it be for our desire to change the world? Probably the former.
While our kids are running around adorned in the newest fashions toting their Hannah Montana dolls, there are kids all around the world struggling to get by. It seems so easy to become sucked into the world as it is today. A world filled with stuff and unhealthy desire for fame and glory. I don't know about everyone else but I want to give my life to honoring God and ushering in His kingdom into this broken and hurting world. I want to be a vessel used in rallying my generation in pursuing change, but not just change for the sake of change, but change that leads to life transformation, to relationships with Jesus.
