Growing Godly Generations Scriptures

Here are a selection of Scriptures that present the theme of growing godly generations. They have stimulated my thinking about ministry and God’s calling in my life. I encourage you to read them and pray that our lives and church will have the impact and influence God desires for generations to come.

Genesis 1:27-28 27 So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female. 28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth.”

Genesis 12:1-3 1 The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.   3 I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

 

Exodus 20:1-6 1 Then God spoke all these words: 2 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. 3 Do not have other gods besides Me. 4 Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth. 5 You must not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the fathers’ sin, to the third and fourth [generations] of those who hate Me, 6 but showing faithful love to a thousand [generations] of those who love Me and keep My commands.”

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 4 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One.   5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. 7 Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead.   9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

Judges 2:6-106 When Joshua dismissed the people, the people of Israel went each to his inheritance to take possession of the land. 7  And the people served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great work that the Lord had done for Israel. 8 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died at the age of 110 years. 9 And they buried him with in the boundaries of his inheritance in Timnath-heres, in the hill country of Ephraim, north of the mountain of Gaash. 10 And all that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done for Israel.”

Psalm 22:22, 28-31 “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you.. 28 for dominion belongs to the Lord and he rules over the nations. 29 All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him – those who cannot keep themselves alive. 30 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. 31 They will proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn – for he had done it.”

Psalm 45:17 “I will perpetuate your memory through all generations; therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.”

Psalm 71:15-19 15 My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure. 16 I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone. 17 Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. 18 Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come. 19 Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God, you who have done great things. Who, O God, is like you?”

Psalm 78:4-8 4 We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. 5 He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, 6 so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. 7 Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. 8 They would not be like their forefathers—a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.”

Psalm 79:13 “ Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise.”

Psalm 102:12, 18 12 But you, O LORD, sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations. 18 Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD.”

Psalm 105:8 “He remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand generations.”

Psalm 109:9-14 (13) “May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.”

This imprecatory psalm shows the value of generations yet prayed against for their enemy.

Psalm 119:90 “Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures.”

Psalm 135:13 “Your name, O LORD, endures forever, your renown, O LORD, through all generations.”

Psalm 145:4 “One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.”

Lamentations 5:19 “You, O LORD, reign forever; your throne endures from generation to generation.”

Daniel 4:3 King Nebuchadnezzar says, “How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; his dominion endures from generation to generation.”

Matthew 28:19-20 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Acts 2:38-39 “Repent,” Peter said to them, “and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus the Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

Galatians 3:6-96 Just as Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness, 7 so understand that those who have faith are Abraham’s sons. 8 Now the Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith and foretold the good news to Abraham, saying, All the nations will be blessed in you. 9 So those who have faith are blessed with Abraham, who had faith.”

Ephesians 3:20-21 20 Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think—according to the power that works in you— 21 to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Hebrews 11

1 Peter 2:9-109 But you are a chosen race,   a royal priesthood,   a holy nation, a people for His possession,   so that you may proclaim the praises   of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

Revelation 5:9-10 9 And they sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals; because You were slaughtered, and You redeemed [people] for God by Your blood from every tribe and language and people and nation. 10 You made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will reign on the earth.”
