Leaving a Legacy – Part 4

Session 11 | Episode 4

God blesses us to be a blessing to others

Building a legacy of destiny requires reaching out to the world and results in bringing about changes in the world.

The family was meant to be a redemptive vehicle. God blesses us to be a blessing to others.

One of God’s primary purposes for your family is to make Christ known and to help fulfil the Great Commission.

In Matthew 28:19, 20 we find the greatest commission ever given by the greatest Person who ever lived. Jesus’ last instruction to His disciples and to the entire body of believers through the ages up to now still is:

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,... ,teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,... ,teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.

This is the command given to every Christian and every family.

The reality of Christ in your life and your family gives credibility to your witness.

As you teach your children and others, your legacy will spread throughout the world.

We have choices about many things in life, but not about whether we will die or not and also not about whether to leave a legacy or not.

The only question is, what kind of legacy is it going to be?

The three commitments we discussed, namely to grow in Christ, to build a godly family and to help fulfill the Great Commission will require time. I can well imagine that all of us have at some time or another used the phrase or at least thought: ‘I don’t have time’ for this or that. But that phrase is never a statement of fact. It is always a declaration of priorities.

Please plan to intentionally be involved in all three the commitments we discussed.

We want to encourage you not to be satisfied with a saved soul and a wasted life.

Thank you and God bless you and your family as you participate in the fulfilling of the Great Commission!
