You are a chosen generation, . . . that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. - 1 Peter 2:9, NKJV
“By faith Abel offered a better sacrifice than Cain did. . . . And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead” (Heb. 11:4, NIV). Abel’s life, although brief, was not wasted because of his faith in God, expressed through his witness.
Have you ever wondered what people will think of you when you’re gone? What will your grandchildren know about you? Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if, like Abel, you are remembered throughout all the generations to follow as one who lived by faith in God?
Abel passed the baton of truth that leads to faith to the next generation, which was represented by his little brother, Seth. If you are single or childless, you are not exempt from the privilege as well as the responsibility of relaying the baton. While unable to relay it to your own children, you can relay it to someone else’s. The possibilities are limitless. So . . . pass it on!
