A few years ago I was listening to a tape by Bob Yandian.
One day, Bob received a phone call from an elder of an independent church that he had attended as a child. The elder informed Bob that they were closing the doors of the church and he was looking for another church to donate the building to.
When Bob entered the church building it was like walking into a time warp. The church had the same furniture, carpet and decor that it had forty years earlier. The pastor’s guitar was on the platform just like he remembered as a child. The only people left in the church were the five elders who were all in their 80’s.
Bob looked at his church staff at that time and said, “This is not going to be our future! We are going to change.”
The truth is the world is always changing because each generation changes it.
Our challenge is to connect people, who are always changing with a God who never changes.
If we refuse to change we lose a generation.
We need to be MODERN, but we also need to be DEEP!
“Feed the flock of God which is among you.” – 1 Peter 5:2
The first thing Peter tells pastors to do is to “feed the flock”. This is the primary responsibility of a pastor.
One trend that really concerns me today is that many newer curriculum do not teach the deep things of the Word.
The world is getting bolder with their message while the church is getting more timid.
Children don’t need less of God’s Word today – they need more. Jesus commanded us to “preach the gospel to every creature.”
If it’s in the Bible you can preach it to kids.
Most children under the age of eight cannot read yet, so they are totally dependent on someone else to feed them. Think about it. For many of the kids in your class the only meal they get is what you are preaching. Make sure you give them some spiritual meat and potatoes and not just dessert.
We want kids to have fun at church, but it’s not just about having fun. We need to give them something to fight the enemy with.
We need to be MODERN and we need to be DEEP
If it’s not DEEP, why do it?
