A Tale of Two Young Men

Enter Jake (27) and Tom (28).
It’s come to my attention that this blog and my podcast are helping to identify a growing army of devoted Christians in their mid-20s to mid-40s who want to know the Lord and are dissatisfied with establishment-pop-celebrity-driven Christianity.
While the masses of this age group appear to be content with status quo Christianity, there’s an increasing tribe — to use Seth Godin’s term — that I’ve had the privilege to interact with regularly who are interested in the deeper journey.
This blesses me greatly because when I was in my 20s and early 30s, there was virtually no one who was older who could relate to my quest for more of the Lord.
This brings me to the story of Jake and Tom, both in their late-20s.
It was a conference weekend. We had an off-site meeting where some of the speakers got together to fellowship. Jake and Tom were present.
A conversation ensued among some of the speakers. I was being asked about knowing the Lord. In answering, I talked about the indwelling life of Christ and The Eternal Purpose of God.
Jake, who came to “carry the bags” of one of the speakers, began to throw in his opinion in a bold display of SYI.
