Last year we lost an Icon, Steve Jobs. Mr. Jobs ingenuity transformed culture like few that have gone before him. Most would have to agree that he was a creative genius. One could conclude based upon Jobs impact on culture, that Mr. Jobs was relevant. Mr. Job connected with and inspired culture.
One of the challenges facing the Body of Christ today is the ability to be relevant- to take this timeless truth, The Gospel, and engage culture. Perhaps no other target group is this most important too, than those who work with youth. Youth are gripped by creativity, innovation and truth. Culture is masterful at presenting their message with creativity, innovation, yet absent of truth. As carriers of The Gospel, we must learn how to package our message to relate and engage culture.
We must seek to raise up leaders like the men of Issachar. 1 Chronicles 12:32, says “The men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do.” It is imperative that we as followers of Christ know our times (what is happening in culture) and how to maximize all of our resources to advance the Kingdom of God. God’s Word is relevant to all cultures, classes, and generations.
