Pass It On

We all had someone in our life that set the example for us. The example of what work looks like. The example of what family looks like. The example of what faith looks like.

Now, for some of us, that example was a great example. It was an example that really showed what a man, or a women, of God should do, should live, should speak.

For some of us, we’ve had some really Godly examples.

For others of us, we haven’t. We may not have had that Godly example.

But here’s the thing. No matter what we bring to the table with our past, those of us that know God, and that are called according to His spirit, we have an obligation to pass on what we know, what we see, what is right, and what is wrong, to those that come behind us. Listen to what is says in Psalm 145:4-7

One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

Our generation, we have an obligation, a command, to share with the next generation what God has done for us. We have to teach our children, our grandchildren, the kids that we know about God. About the love and grace of Jesus. About the power of the Holy Spirit.

We have a command to pass it on.

We must. Because if we don’t, who will? If we as the church, as believers, as those that love God don’t tell, who will?

We must.

But today, don’t get up in so telling with our words, that we forget to tell with our lives. Our lives tell the story of God’s grace even louder than our words. Today, share the story of God’s grace and redemption with all.

With the young.

With the old.

With all.

With your words.

And with your lives. Let’s pass along what we know. Let’s tell the goodness of God to everyone!
