If you've ever watched the Summer Olympics, or any sort of track meet, then you've probably seen a 4x100 relay team running. As the runner gets close to their teammate, they'll pass a baton. This passing of the baton enables the next runner to carry on and finish the race. In many ways, this is similar to discipleship and the parenting/child relationship. We see this played out in both the Old and New Testaments. Jesus was the master of passing on the baton of faith to his disciples and the apostle Paul wasn't far behind. We see Paul starting churches, making disciples and then passing on the faith. Unfortunately, in America, we have reduced raising our children to behavioral modification, following the rules and church attendance. So, what are some ways we can approach living out our faith in front of our children and leading them to Jesus? How can we pass on the baton of faith to the next generation? In short... by the grace of God.
