Me too! Reid offers a lot of practical wisdom for leaders and parents. He says we have spent so much time on the imperatives(the "do's", commands, law) and lost sight of the indicatives(the "Christ has done", Gospel). This leads to what Christian Smith coined Moralistic Therapeutic Deism and it fills youth rooms and pulpits all over the country, if not the world. The idea that God, an impersonal force more than a relational being, is here to make me feel better as long as I act good is as pervasive as it is perverse. Reid's advice, ditch this and focus on the Gospel.
Focus on the Gospel in its grandest presentation. The typical Roman Road Gospel presentation drops the hearer in the middle of the story, assuming that Romans 1-3 is known and understood as we kick off at Romans 3:23. Reid's point is to see the Gospel from beginning to end, the good news of God from creation to consumation and restoration. He encourages the reader to teach students the "metanarrative" of Scripture, the big story. And see that the Gospel is not the "door to Christianity" that one enters and leaves behind, but rather it is the focus of all of Christianity. Allow the student to see who God is and what He is doing and let these truths be applied to them by the Holy Spirit.Read more ›
With timeless wisdom and insight, Dr. Reid writes to the current state of youth ministry. Instead of just diagnosing the problem, he also gives a solution..creating a missionary culture in our ministries and infusing a missionary mindset into the lives of students. Our end goal is a ministry focused on creating a culture in ministry that inspires our students to see life as mission.
