As life spans increase, we are faced with a new problem and a great opportunity.
While retirement is generally seen as a time of relaxation and self focus, God calls us to remain faithful to love, serve, and help others. Countless Christians are entering a state of spiritual dormancy not realizing or knowing how they can continue to have an impact for God’s Kingdom.
There are millions of dormant Christians whom God is wanting to use now and in the future. What would the church look like with all generations maximizing their impact for God’s Kingdom?
Most Christians tend to follow the world’s pattern of rest and self-pampering during retirement. However, their last quarter could be focused on God’s unique call to love, serve, and help others. In fact, it could be their best season if they take advantage of a life’s worth of knowledge and experience combined with a greater freedom of time and money.
A reformation has begun to encourage Christians to find and follow God’s call in all seasons and aspects of life.
