"We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done."
Competing in a relay race demands more than speed. It requires skill and agility to pass the baton to the next runner. While most of us won’t be competing in professional races, our lives still reflect a type of relay, one that involves “passing the baton” – leaving a legacy for the next generation.
Throughout their history, the ancient Israelites did not often succeed in passing a legacy of hope to their children. Instead, their legacy was filled with complaints and rebellion. They frequently failed to live up to their calling as a people set apart by God.
But before we point fingers at the Israelites, we need to examine ourselves. How like them we are! Christians have a responsibility to share the good news of who God is and what He has done for us. We are called to ensure each new generation
knows that, through Jesus, they can be restored to the One who loves them enough to send His Son to die for them.
Don’t keep the good news of Jesus Christ a secret. Leave a legacy by passing the Gospel on to the next generation.
What child will you share the Gospel with this week? Don't drop the baton when the opportunity comes!
