The timing of this morning is just too good to pass up the subject of the “Three Chairs”. We ended Joshua on the high note of “As for me and my house…”, and now we begin a new year of life choices. These choices will significantly affect our own lives and our families, maybe beyond what we could imagine. Bruce Wilkinson wrote and talked extensively on the subject of generational Christianity. His book is entitled: Experiencing Spiritual Breakthroughs: The Powerful Principle of the Three Chairs- 1999. Allow me to introduce you to principles that are deadly serious. Hopefully you will determine truthfully which chair you sit in as well as determine which chair you prefer.
1. Next generation 2. Conflict/complacency 3. Does not know God 4. Doesn’t believe or care
1. Elders 2. Compromise 3. Knows about God 4. Judgmental of others-hypocritical
1. Joshua 2. Commitment 3. Knows God 4. Grace filled- intimate with God
In the third chair? Come into a relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ. In the second chair? Repent, commit your whole life to God. In the first chair? Recommit yourself to God’s will.
