Judges 2:10

“And all that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that He had done for Israel.”

If you were to pass away today, would those coming after you know Christ or be influenced by your faith? This was a question I was met with during my quiet time. We have been entrusted as ambassadors for Christ to steward the gospel and leave a legacy of faith. We are passing down something to the next generation after us. The question is what are we passing down? Are we leaving behind us just good morals and values? Are we passing down life lessons? Though these are not bad things to pass down, they are not the main thing. Good morals, values, and life lessons can still produce a generation that does not know the Lord personally (Judges 2:10). Joshua passed down a lot of good life lessons while leading the Israelites into the promised land. But, what we don’t see him doing is discipling a successor. What about you? Who is one person being influenced by your faith? Who is 1 lost person you can share Christ with? Let’s love God and love people together and win this next generation to Jesus. Let’s live a memorable witness and faith for Christ!
