Our church is made up of 2 very different groups: first and second generation Christians. We have the same objectives but experience and feel the stages very differently. When the differences between us are not understood and respected, they breed misunderstanding, discouragement, judging, criticism, and ultimately a parting of ways (sadly, that usually occurs with the 2nd generation Christian leaving their “parent’s church”). This message covers the very different way in which a 2nd generation Christian sees God’s calling, knowing God’s truth, being baptized, and even being first fruits.
