“Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts; let them proclaim your power” (Psalm 145:4 NLT).


Each generation must respond to the gospel for themselves in order to believe and become children of God. The faith must be passed on like a baton in a relay race. The Israelites who took possession of the Promised Land were faithful, but they neglected the command to pass their faith on to their children. So, the author of the book of Judges observed: “After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mighty things he had done for Israel” (Judges 2:10). Every good parent wants their children to be well educated. But every godly parent knows that the most important task is to teach their children of God’s “mighty acts,” so that they might be saved. God does not have grandchildren.
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for the faithful generations that went before us that the gospel might be handed down to us. Now empower us to do the same that our children and children’s children might know and follow You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
