Last night my husband and I watched a you tube video put together by Finding My Hope. Billy Graham starts off telling us how many minutes and hours we have. Billy Graham is another who knows his confidence is in the Lord.
As I contemplate what these saints have done for us, I am worried about our future. What is going to happen when they are gone? Who will pray for us? One of the saddest things in the Bible I know of is when the Lord says, “I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.( Ezekiel 22:30)”
The true Christians of the generation before us are those who have stood in the gap for us. They are the people who passed on the torch of Christianity and have prayed for our country and for us as individuals. It's time now to wake up and take their place as each of them leave us to go home. Let it not be said of us that there was no one to stand in the gap for the next generation.
