Who then...will tell them?

If not me...who then will tell them?

Posterity will serve him;
    future generations will be told about the Lord.
31 They will proclaim his righteousness,
    declaring to a people yet unborn:
    He has done it! (Psalm 22:30-31 NIV)

Future (unborn) generations are depending on our faithfulness today. As we teach our children about the Lord, so they will teach their children and their children's children. If we fail to tell our children about the Lord, we could very well be breaking the chain of God's influence in generations to come.

We must view our children and all the young people we meet as God's future leaders. If we are faithful in opportunities today, there is a good possibility we may be affecting the future.

If we want our children to serve the Lord, they must hear about Him from us. It is not enough to rely on the church or those with more knowledge to provide all the Christian education. We must reinforce the lessons of the Bible in our homes.

It's time to stop playing church and be the church. No more pew-warmers. Faith is an action word. Jesus said GO and make disciples - we (believers, Christ-Followers) are the disciples!

How/where did you hear about Jesus?
