I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations Psalm 89:1
To those who know Christ, we understand a bit about eternity, that is, that we will be singing of God’s love forever and ever and ever. The second piece to that, though, is keeping that fire alive not only among this generation but through the next and the next after that. How do we do that? How do we ensure future generations will carry the Gospel message onto future generations.
The answer, of course, is in the second half of this verse but it goes a bit further. Surely we proclaim in any way, form, or fashion the Gospel message. We proclaim it through radio, TV, broadsheets, song, word of mouth, or a thousand different ways. But as sure as I write this, you have to know that people are also watching us. They’re looking for consistency. They may not be looking for perfection necessarily, but consistency. And that goes back to the fundamental principle of this verse: faithfulness. Being faithful in our walk and witness is totally worthwhile. It tells others about the changed life you’ve experienced.
In that way, we are able to show how God is faithful. He has used every generation to proclaim His word and His love. That’s faithfulness.
