" 'As for me, this is my covenant with them,' says the Lord. 'My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,' says the Lord." - Isaiah 59:21
All four of my grandparents worked so hard to give their families the greatest gift of all - knowing Jesus and His Word. I pray that my children and their children could find God through me (or despite me!) someday as well. In scripture, we see great tragedies when faith is not passed along generations (see all of the stories in 2 Samuel through 2 Chronicles). However, by the grace of the Spirit who stayed with the few who kept their beliefs, Jesus was raised by two very godly parents (of course in addition to his Heavenly Father). This is not an easy task. The world will fight us tooth and nail in a constant barrage for our souls and the souls of our children, and we will fail again and again. A glorious shout of thanks to our Great God though as He sends us the Spirit of our perfect Advocate to help us each moment of each day in all seasons and generations! Praise Him!
