Kick-Starting Generational Echoes - Will de Lacey
…the greatest thing they could ever do is to create a legacy: a generational echo that lifts up the name of Jesus.
For me, my life was changed when I was 15 years old, after being invited to a youth night called Epic, by a mate I played hockey with; having the time of my life but also hearing about a God who loves me, just as I am. I’m thankful for everyone involved in that night (and many more that came after that) as they helped to kick-start a ‘generational echo’ in my life. An echo my son is growing up in. An echo that will create a legacy well past my life. An echo that lifts up the name of Jesus.
I now get to be someone who helps to kick-start ‘generational echoes’ in young people’s lives. Every week my wife and I lead Epic in Melbourne, seeing teenagers come and hear about a God who loves them, just as they are. My prayer is that every young person who I get the privilege to lead would grow closer to God and know that the greatest thing they could ever do is to create a legacy: a generational echo that lifts up the name of Jesus.
We all have the ability to have a ‘generational echo’ - whether it be directly to our children or to those we do life with day in day out. The question is, what will our echo sound like?
