Young Yi

Deuteronomy 4:1-4 & 9

We are all a part of the Gospel legacy. What role do you play in carrying on the Word to the next generation? Pastor Young Yi encourages us that obedience to God’s Word leads to life and deepens our sole allegiance to Him. Because we have the Gospel upholding us, we can move forward with confidence in Jesus. Our part is to live in that truth and to pass on the Gospel to the next generation with boldness and faith.

Gospel proclamation to continue beyond ourselves, we unapologetically
invite older generations to lay down their cultural preferences and pour into the next generations. The church is the strongest at the intersection of the wisdom and experience of olders and the passion and innovation of youngers.

 

Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you don’t forget the things your eyes have seen and so that they don’t slip from your mind as long as you live. Teach them to your children and your grandchildren.

You must not add anything to what I command you or take anything away from it, so that you may keep the commands of the LORD your God I am giving you.

But you who have remained faithful to the LORD your God are all alive today.

If you are an older:
– practice your hospitality
– share stories of God’s faithfulness
– share the why and not just the what

 

If you are a younger:
– don’t dismiss tradition
– don’t forget the olders
– find someone to mentor you
– learn to commit to a church

 

And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.

Matthew 16:18
 

Which generation do you fall under (Boomer, Gen-X, Millennial, Gen-Z)? What are some negative impressions of your generation from a societal view? What are some positive impressions of your generation from a societal view?
Are you in relationships with people who are not a part of your generation? If so, what are those relationships like? If not, what are some obstacles that inhibit you from being in relationships with people who are not in the same generation as you?
How does the Scriptures and the Gospel address multi-generational interactions within the Church? What are some ways you would like to see more of this happen within Riverview?
If you consider yourself as an “older” what are some ways you can lay aside your cultural preferences for youngers to step in? If you consider yourself as a “younger” what are some ways: 1) you can practice humility and learn from someone who is an “older” and 2) you can creatively share the Gospel to your friends?
Moses and the Israelites shared stories with one another to share of God’s faithfulness to them. Take some time to share a story or two with one another regarding God’s faithfulness in your life.
