I Chronicles 26: 12 ” These divisions of the Gatekeepers, through their chief men, had duties for ministering in the Temple of the Lord, just as their relatives had.”

Have your parents always been active in Church, but you’ve held back…maybe thinking it’s not for you?  Look around your Church and assess the age of  those who serve the most.  Are they in their 20’s or 30’s…or is it more like 60’s and 70’s, or older?  The sad fact about many Churches today is that the vast majority of those ministering and volunteering are the elderly of the Church, not younger adults.  In this verse,  it speaks of the Gatekeepers being chief men…men who were strong and in the prime of their life…charged with guarding and protecting with self-discipline and integrity.  The Church is only as young as the people who serve.  And when those precious Saints of the Church are gone…what happens next?  Who will fill their shoes? Will you?
