“Our world cannot last another generation of Christian young people who fit in. The shackles of society are on our minds and hearts, not our ankles. We are held back only by the myth of adolescence and the lies of social expectations. If we would only recognize that our restraints are illusory, and then let God’s Word and all of history govern our sense of what we are capable of, we would be a force this world could no longer ignore.”
Teenagers are wasting some of the best years of their life. Adolescence has become a time in life when young people have little to no responsibilities and are expected to accomplish very little. Alex and Brett Harris have decided to rebel against the low expectations of society.
“The word ‘rebelution’ is a combination of the words ‘rebellion’ and ‘revolution.’ So it carries a sense of an uprising against social norms. But in this case, it’s not a rebellion against God-established authority, but against the low expectations of our society. It’s a refusal to be defined by our ungodly, rebellious, and apathetic culture. Actually, we like to think of it as rebelling against rebellion.”
I’m reading the Harris brother’s book Do Hard Things right now and I recommend it to any teenager and even adults who have let themselves become satisfied with just getting by. They don’t just talk about doing hard things but are meeting the challenge head-on. Check out The Rebelution blog for yourself and recommend it to a young person today. Its not too late to redeem this important time of life.
