“Your faithfulness continues through all generations; You established the earth, and it endures.” -Psalm 119:90
There will always be a remnant to proclaim the wonders of God from one generation to the next. God’s Word has promised this. It is part of the Lord’s faithfulness to us. Our duty as Christians is the amazing privilege of working with the Lord, serving Him by going and telling others the Gospel. We get to disciple our children, training them in the way they should go, not merely to be outstanding citizens in society but learn what it means to die to self and follow Christ. If believers refuse to obey these commands, taking them seriously, then we not only lose rewards in Heaven but will be held accountable for our sins of omission (James 4:17; James 1:22-25; Matthew 12:47; Luke 11:42). The rocks will cry out and praise Him if we do not. Creation will testify to its Maker more than it already does because all of creation is made to worship (Luke 19:40; Colossians 1:16; Psalm 148).
God doesn’t need us, but desires to include us in His good purpose, loving His own dearly. Whether we obey or not, His Name, His World, will endure until He is ready to change the current Earth and Heaven into something new (Revelation 21:1). God does nothing half-way. He has firmly established His Creation, His people, His Word- and now we actively wait in eager anticipation of the Lord’s promises fulfilled at the end of this Age, the Era of Grace (Romans 8:19-25).
Grace upon grace,
