"We will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD, about his power and his mighty wonders." Psalms 78:4 (NLT)
Christianity was never meant to be kept to ourselves. We have a responsibility to be Christ's ambassador, sharing His good news with the next generation. And there is so much to share. But how many examples of God's "glorious deeds" can we share about? What can we tell others about His power? What of His mighty wonders can we share? The problem is we don't pay attention. We take all that God does for us for granted. We are spoiled acting like we have some sort of entitlement. So we reduce God's message to telling everyone that they are going to Hell and need a Savior. But the truth is people are hurting, dying, incomplete and disillusioned. They would do anything to learn about a God that is real. Sure, we must share the saving message of the gospel, but if we are going to win a generation then they also need to know about all the great things God is doing. Let's begin to pay more attention to God at work around us and start to share with those we know, God's glorious deeds, power and mighty wonders.
PRAYER Father, help me to see all the great things You are doing in my life and begin to share the joy and wonder of knowing You with those around me. AMEN
