The Debt We Owe

by Ken Barnes  
3/18/2018 / Christian Living

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.  
(Psalms 71:18 NASB).

Every believer in every generation has a story to tell.  We owe a debt to all future disciples of Christ to tell them about the goodness of God.

I am among the first of the Baby Boomers.  Those of us born on the leading edge of this generation have entered the seventh decade of our existence. We need to be thinking about what we will leave to future generations to perpetuate the cause of Christ.   We are indebted to past believers for their stories which encouraged us in our faith.  We need to pay that debt forward by providing accounts of God’s faithfulness in our lives.  It is admirable to speak about the goodness of God, but we need to leave something that will transcend our earthly existence.  This will only happen if we record our experiences.  We need to get our pencils, pens, and computers operative.

I know what some of you are saying to yourselves; I am not a writer.  Then, find someone who is and get them to help you.  Or, take an adult education writing class.  There are plenty of those at little or no cost. Where there is a will, there is a way.  You may think you don’t know where to start.  Begin with how you came to know Christ.  All heaven rejoiced over that event, which should highlight its importance.  If you write for no other reason than for your descendants, it will be worth it.  It’s doable, just get started and watch what God does.  Let’s not pass into eternity owing a debt.

I worked for seventeen years as a missionary with Youth With A Mission. My missionary work has taken me to Mexico, Canada, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Spain, and the Ukraine.I hold a Masters of Education in curriculum and instruction from Virginia Commonwealth University. [email protected]
