Thank you God for all you have done in my life. Help me to be a witness to the next generation of your great love.
Read: Psalm 71:18 (NIV)
18” Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.”
Regardless of our age today we each have a responsibility to declare God’s message of hope to the generations younger than us. The road we have walked with Christ is meant to be shared with someone younger coming behind us. A pastor once shared that many of us are afraid to share our testimony about Christ because we think we have to be like a lawyer arguing our case. Instead we are called to be a witness. Only sharing what we have seen and heard in our own lives. Someone around you needs hope and encouragement today. Be a witness and share what you know to be true in your own journey with the Savior. You never know how your story will ripple through the generations to follow.
Think about someone in your life who is younger than you and schedule some time with them. Be ready to share with them what Christ’s love has meant in your life.
Open my eyes to see what you see in the people around me. I want to be a faithful witness of your love.
