There is a day set aside in the month of November for remembrance. At the time it was created, it was to remember all those who had given their lives in the world war. Let’s do that, but let’s also use it to remember what Jesus did by His death on the cross. Remember me, He encourages us in the communion supper.
Scripture also instructs us to remember the works that God has done in our lives and declare His acts to our children. “One generation shall praise Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts.” Ps 145:4. The power of testimony is electrifying. Sharing from our hearts what God has done in our lives, not only in our salvation experience, but also in the answers to prayer, the acts He does by His grace and mercy, and the goodness He gives to us, releases the power for Him to do it again.
Remember that you didn’t get here on your own. You have a generational heritage. Let’s purpose to look to the next generation and empower them by remembering and declaring who God is and what He has done. Whether it is to your natural family or our church family or both, think and act multi-generationally. It’s the Kingdom way.
