Hardly a day goes by when we don’t hear some description of the different generations that make up our society. I’m an early Baby Boomer, one of those countless millions born right after the end of World War 2(no, not the Civil War!). Before us is the Greatest Generation, after us the Hippies, and now we have the X Generation, the Y Generation, the Millenials and the who knows what generation. I can’t keep up. What’s next? ‘Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care’!! I was reading Psalm 24 in my quiet time with the Lord…and He spoke loud and clear to me through His written Word, the Bible: ‘Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob’ (verse 6). People love to categorize others, button-hole them, pigeon-hole them, put them in a box, labeling them maybe to shelve them ignoring them? Could be. I’m not sure but I do know that creating such dividing walls separates people making us more lonely than we need to be and even a bit smug. Read Psalm 24:6 again…Seeking the Lord, wanting to be close to Him, hearing Him in His Word, experiencing Him in the events of our lives, being in His hands,humbly and comfortably sitting at His feet puts all of us who believe in Him in the same generation. The Seeking Generation…that’s us! Male, female, Jew, Gentile, Sudanese, Romanian,rich,poor, upper-class, no-class,old, young, good-looking, barely noticed, doctorate, school of hard-knocks, Baptist, Presbyterian, Non-Conformist, Roman Catholic…all in Jesus who trust in Him alone, the Same Generation! So, when someone asks you what generation you were born into, tell them, ‘the Generation that Seeks the Lord.’ And say it proudly! That’s my generation! And yours? Hey, even more than that, we’re family in the Jesus, with an inheritance that’s just out of this world! ‘Such IS the Generation of those who seek Him…’
eneration! Talk about walls coming a- crashing down! Barriers shattered. People talking with each other and not passed each other. Wow! Praise the Lord! One People, One Church…When you’re asked what generation you were born in? Why not say, the Generation that seeks the Lord! That’s my generation? And yours? Think of the inheritance we all have coming!
