Going live is intergenerational


by MartiFischer

We find ourselves in the middle of an unraveling period, maybe even on the brink of a crisis. How we respond has everything to do with whether we are alive in Christ or just dabbling in life. There are no other options — in or out; alive or drooling. 

Similarly, it is impossible to Go Live in Christ if we spend our time examining the world we live in from the mood and attitude of our particular generation. When seeking to Go Live in Christ as a body it does not matter if you are a member of the postwar High or the Awakening of the ’60s and ’70s, or now, the Unraveling. Today, right now, and regardless of when you were born, we are born for such a time as this.  

We are partners and participants in God’s business to Go Live and Go Out and make disciples.  We are to move from bystanders to assistants in His great commission. It matters not whether we do this outside or inside the body of believers. We do not know whether or when people will or will not come to Christ. We simply come into a relationship with them wherever they are on their journey. Nor does it matter what generations we or they represent; discipleship is intergenerational. Relationship across generations is and adventure; it takes more mutual understanding.

In this, we must buck the current trend which is to gather in groups of sameness — same generation, same belief system, same politics, same race, same ethnicity. The body of Christ is like jumping into a multi-colored ball pit instead of one with just blue balls.

Thus, the issue for all of us as a united body of Christ is to serve the “family,” which is men, women, and their children.  For such a time as this, we are to treat everyone with the dignity and respect due an ongoing creation of God. People’s final choices are not for anyone to judge, but to walk alongside. In offering such an environment to men, women, and their children in any one of the most vulnerable or confusing moments in their lives can change lives and hearts, because acts of love are taking place, not simply words. 

For such a time as this, Go Live — and Go Live together, cultivating intergenerational relationships, which is one of the most important ways we can develop a flourishing faith in both young and old. This means changing the metaphor from simply passing the baton to the next generation to a more functional, biblical picture of the body — that is, the entire community of faith, across the entire lifespan, working together to fulfill God’s purposes.

For such a time as this … Go Live!
