Our young people, when they met, were wont to spend the time in talking of the excellency and dying love of Jesus Christ, the glory of the way of salvation, the wonderful, free and sovereign grace of God, his glorious work in the conversion of a soul, the truth and certainty of the great things of God's word, the sweetness of the views of his perfections, etc. (15)
Oh how I long that this and more could be said!!! It is my desire, and my prayer...that the Lord would again, open up the heavens and rain down a special outpouring of His Spirit in the hearts and lives of the young people of this generation. We are a generation that waste our affections on everything else but what pleases God. Oh how I can become so excited about the latest gadget, discussion, music, Cardinal ball game, etc. I can use my emotions, my time, money, and energy to gladly enthrall myself in these things. There is nothing necessarily "evil" about sports, gadgets, discussion, coffee, music...but do others see in me a greater desire, a greater love for the God who saved me...though I deserved the fiery flames of Hell? Ask yourself...where are my affections invested, where do I spend them?
