GOLDEN AGERS

Getting older in life is a journey of change, especially as one enters the period known as the Golden Age. Things change so rapidly that the older generation is left sitting in their living rooms wondering how they can fit into an evolution that has moved from simplicity to perplexity. The changing social framework has left the aging generation activating their memory banks to remembering the world when things made sense. Not all seniors are having difficulty in adapting to the changes, but to some it is a journey of relearning and rethinking.

One area in which the Golden Agers strive to find support is within the worship community - the Church. There they can rest on the assurance that Jesus is the same as He has always been and will continue to be their source of grace and peace. The concern I have is that even the local community of Believers is being affected by the tsunami of change. Many Fellowships are engulfed in attempts to draw more young people into their community by offering a more relative type of worship experience. We know that the future of the Church rests with the youth, but the foundational generation (Golden Agers) should not be neglected.

There seems to be a change in spiritual leadership from the matured to the untried. More and more Fellowships are striving to replace the veterans of the pulpit with young men who have not been proven or tested. Most of the preaching today is focused on the younger generation and their challenges in life. The “forgotten generation” sits in the pews hearing messages that have little application to their needs.

We are living in very difficult and trying times. If there ever is a time when the Church needs proven leadership, it is now. Many are being lulled into a false sense of security while the “prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2) prepares for his last ditch effort to destroy the Church. Strong, uncompromising preaching needs to resound from the pulpits. Veterans need to step to the front and help assist young leadership in equipping the Saints for the battles that lie ahead. Even if the Church is neglecting the Golden Agers, these proven Saints need to be living examples of the Word in action. Our older generation needs to offer guidance and direction to the young, not only of heart, but of experience.

If the ministry of the Church is overlooking the seniors, the seniors need to encourage each other. The day will come when the Church will experience the full wrath of Satan and, when that happens, the doorbells of the older Saints will be rung as the “tested” generation will seek their guidance and direction. Let not the older generation lose heart, God is not finished with you yet. Rise up Golden Agers, leave those rocking chairs and easy chairs, put on the armor of God (that may have been stored away,) and step to the front to meet the challenge of the spiritual Goliath.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Paul, I know where you are going with with this Golden Age article. The Golden Age People are being left out. The only way they are going to fit in is to belong to a Seniors Residence with a congregation. Paul as you know it is the same in the hospitals the Golden Age are sometimes neglected. Blessings Don.
