Leaving a legacy – Part 1

Session 11 | Episode 1

Building a legacy of destiny

At the end of this very short introduction to the Weekend to Remember, we would like you to think about the kind of legacy that you will leave behind when one day you step out of this world to be with God.

We would like to help you grasp a vision and encourage you to dream and plan a legacy of destiny. A legacy that would count for God.

A legacy that would build and strengthen the only kingdom that will outlast time, God’s kingdom.

A legacy that would build and strengthen the only kingdom that will outlast time, God’s kingdom.

Look ahead, down the road of time, and consider who you are influencing with your life and how you are influencing them.

Don’t focus on the past, on everything you lacked and all that was wrong. None of us comes from a perfect past.

The legacy you will leave behind is of much greater importance than the one you received, and this legacy you leave behind is the only one you are responsible for.

Building a legacy of destiny requires three levels of commitment:

Firstly, a commitment to personal growth in Christ.

No one drifts towards spiritual maturity. A life lived intentionally under the control of the Holy Spirit, results in growing spiritual maturity.

Secondly, a commitment to love one another.

Without a disposition of love towards others, especially your spouse, you have no credible testimony, especially not towards your children whom you want to influence for the rest of their lives!

Thirdly, a commitment to help reach the world.

In Mt 28:19 and 20 we find Jesus’ Great Commission, our marching orders to go make disciples of all nations.

So, at our next meeting we will consider the first of these three commitments, our responsibility to grow in Christ.
