We Cannot Remain Numb When Millennials are Leaving the Church

As we learn about the young adult Christians who are absent from our church services month after month, we cannot remain numb about it. Most Christians rarely miss the millennials due to their own busyness at church and at home. Others might question their absence from time to time, but their apathy forbids further thoughts. Still others promise to pray for them, but they forget them due to an overloaded prayer list.

For the believers who truly care and are burdened about the absence of millennials in our churches, we can pray. We must pray fervently. We must pray without ceasing, even if we do not know them personally.

Because some Christians are not numb toward this growing exodus from churches, we can also rejoice in the Lord because He is able to bring them back to the local churches and use them mightily for His Glory.

“Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food. Though the flock may be cut off the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls — Yet I will rejoice in the LORD,  I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And he will make me walk on my high hills”   [Habakkuk 3:17-19].
