Pass On the Baton | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion
When your days on this earth are over and you “pass on the baton”, what will you be remembered for? What you intentionally (or unintentionally) pass on today is what you’ll be remembered for tomorrow.
“For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing” 2 Timothy 4:6-8, NIV
Saul of Tarsus had a huge turn-around in his life. He became Paul, Jesus’ apostle. He lived as an ambassador for Jesus’ message. He modeled following Jesus and gave so much to others.
How about you? What is the baton you want to pass on to your kids or those who follow you?
What is it that you are praying for and living for that will equip the next generation to run their life’s race and win a crown from the Lord Jesus.
Is your faith an honest and visible anchor in your life…something you share with your child or others?
Is your faith an honest and visible anchor in your life…something you share with your child or others? (This not religion, and it’s way more than morality or out-sourcing your kids to Christian programs at church or school.)
Are you secure in your identity and helping your child or others find their identity? Deeply loved and fully forgiven in Christ…gifted with a story and strengths…called to bless others. That is the foundation of our identity.
Are you helping others find their way to healthy relationships and a winsome picture of marriage? God’s got the blueprints for relationships, marriage, sex and family.
None of us can write letters as inspired as Paul did, but writing letters to your kids may be just one part of the intentionality it takes to pass the baton well?
