It seems every generation has been tagged with some sort of nickname. For example; the roaring 20s, the dirty 30s, the swinging 60s and the disco 70s. Other terms are also associated with each age; such as the Greatest Generation, The Baby Boomers, The Silent Generation, the Me Generation and Generations X, Y and Z.
Whatever we’re perceived as, the important thing is how God looks at us. Our sinful nature guarantees that we were conceived in sin and God should look at all of us as unworthy to approach Him. Thankfully God doesn’t work that way. His love is beyond our understanding and because of that love we have been washed clean of all our ugliness by the death and resurrection of His Son.
The beautiful message of the Gospel, assures our forgiveness if we only believe it. Isn’t it wonderful that in this world, where evil and selfishness prevail, those who have faith in the most important gift of God can still be part of the “Redeemed Generation.” Because of His grace alone we will inherit His heavenly kingdom. Through our faith alone, which is also a gift from God, we receive the promise of eternal life. Through His inspired Word, we have the perfect handbook for life provided by the King of Kings. It isn’t complicated.
Thank you, Holy Father, for all your amazing gifts. Help us to show our gratitude by being like your Son. May we be servants, friends, helpers, workers and sharers of your love. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen!
