Translating God's Word for a new generation


← back to list

It has been said, “The Church is never more than one generation away from extinction.” This bold statement, perhaps, finds support in the admonition found in today’s Old Testament lesson. There Moses writes this concerning the works of the Lord, “Make them known to your children and your children’s children.” (Deuteronomy 4:9) Each generation has the responsibility, and privilege, of passing on the works of God to the next generation. While much of this teaching happens in the setting of a local congregation, the Christian instruction that happens in the home—in our own families—is key! This teaching is always centered on Jesus Christ, the One through whom our Lord has worked the mightiest work of all—our salvation. That same Savior promises that even the gates of Hell will not prevail against His Church!
