Ezra 10:1-44; Daniel 11:1-20; Revelation 6:1-17

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2

One of the challenges of leadership in assembly life is to know when it is time to pass on the baton! Christian testimony is illustrated by the long-distance relay race. Crucial to the success and victory of the team is the careful passing of the baton from one runner to the next. Sometimes elders are afraid or reluctant to relinquish the baton of responsibility to the next generation. One of the greatest sources of encouragement comes from remembering it’s the Lord’s work not mine! —Sid Halsband

Channels only, blessed Master, but with all Thy wondrous power,
Flowing through us, Thou canst use us every day and every hour. —M. E. Maxwell
