Passing on Our Faith
21 February 2021 PM – Genesis 5 – Gen2021 – Scott Childs
Introduction: A wise yet unknown author wrote, “The most significant contribution we make in life, is the passing of our faith to the next generation.”
Yes, passing on your faith to your children will contribute more to their physical and eternal life than giving them expensive clothing, a fine house, or the luxuries of life. Without faith in Christ, a child will spend an eternity separated from God.
Transition: Genesis 5 is a genealogy chapter. In it, God highlighted ten men from Adam to Noah for our benefit. As we look at these ten men, I want us to note four facts about each of them that ought to challenge us to strive to pass on our faith to the next generation.
