Generational Blessings

While preparing a talk for older adults I was sharing about generational blessings handed down by my dad and his mother. I am where I am because of their (and others) planting seeds of the Gospel to me. I have read and believe that they cheer me on. Hebrews 12: 1, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…” 


I had not thought about, “let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…” being a relay race. My pastor shared that those who have gone on before us passed the baton to us. It is our turn to prepare the generations to come. Matthew 28: 19-20, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” We are called not only to be disciples but to make disciples. We want to be a part of the cloud of witness. We must pass the baton of biblical truth on to another, who passes it to another, and so on!
