The biggest challenge we face today
July 16, 2012
So even to old age and gray hairs,
O God, do not forsake me,
until I proclaim your might to another generation,
your power to all those to come.
I was shocked to read not long ago that only 49 percent of college freshmen in America have a thought-out philosophy of life. That means over half of the young people entering college today don’t have a direction they’re heading, nor principles to guide them.
The same is true of young Christians, so many of whom don’t know what they believe. And then we wonder why, when the world’s pressure is turned on, they collapse.
Too many young Christians have never studied the Bible. They’ve never had someone mentor them in their faith. They've simply just come to church when it’s convenient, rather than build their lives upon the bedrock truths of the Word of God. That, to me, says it all. That's why so many leave the faith once they get into the world.
Older Christians must build into the next generation. If they don't, we risk an entire generation being lost to the ways of the world. So whether you're older or younger, find one person whom you can build into or who can build into you!
POUR INTO THE NEXT GENERATION AND UNDERGIRD THEIR FAITH BY GROUNDING THEM IN THE WORD OF GOD.

Face the future with hope!
We live in uncertain times—with global economic problems, the threat of terrorism, natural disasters, and violence around the world. But as Christians, you and I can walk into the future with confidence and courage because God has given us hope! And He has provided a clear picture of these last days in His Word.
I’ll take you right to the heart of Israel in Israel 2011—to the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Olives and more—to help you walk the footsteps of Jesus Himself and see how this wonderful land plays a part in the last days. And Signs of the Times will show you how you can be ready for Christ’s return.
These two resources are my gifts to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. I pray they will strengthen your faith!
