Across the Generations

It’s hard to grasp the breadth of God’s reach across the generations. Our life is but a passing vapor, limited by a handful of years in the course of history. Yet God reaches across the generations with His Word. He created us, created communication, to carry His word across time.

Take time to tell others your story of faith in Jesus so that it may carry on for generations. Write down how God has worked in your life so that it may be shared with your descendants.

This will be written for the generation to come, That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD. – Psalm 102:18

  1. Not all our messages are written on paper. Every one of us who are believers have in some way received the message from another. Our mission (not an impossible one) is to pass it to at least one other!

  2. I started out posting and having a personal journal for this reason CG. I don’t even like to write. I’d rather be fishing on the wrong side of the boat than write.

    1. That’s great that you’re keeping a journal and posting. A great legacy. Maybe you can write while you’re fishing on the wrong side of the boat? 😊 Blessings.

      1. Ha, I actually thought of getting voice recognition software to talk and fish at the same time. The only problem…I would have a lot of editing from talking to the fish (come on..bite …you know you want the worm!!!)

  3. I’m sure I’ve heard of this idea—write about your journey with God—but I never thought about the possible benefits to future generations. Thank you, CG! God Bless.

    1. Thanks for the comment. Last fall I was reminded how valuable it is to have written snippets of history of family. After my mom died we found a stack of letters my dad wrote to her when he was overseas during World War II. It gave new insight into their early relationship and made me think about my written legacy. Blessings.
