A SHARED HERITAGE

Thursday 07-25-19

“He has made known to His people the power of His works, in giving them the heritage of the nations” (Psalm 111:6).

If heritage is defined as practices handed down from the past by tradition, it then begs the question, “How well am I modeling the life of faith, and the disciplined, traditional, practices of God’s people as depicted in scripture?” If the overwhelming majority of confessing Christians in the U.S. are already flunking the Sunday worship gathering test (most polling agencies now defining average church attendance as once every 4-6 weeks), there is no reason to think faith is being played out at home in a way that will have any lasting formative impact. Faith continues as a heritage only as it’s passed down. Let us not fumble the ball. Something bigger than your Sunday morning is at stake.
