LEAVING A LEGACY
To leave a legacy, you have to live your life with the end in mind.
Significant people live their lives with the end in view. They are always aware of the legacy they will leave behind. Reminding themselves of 3 things
1. To keep the right principles in mind. 2.Have the right prospective about life.
3. Embrace the right priorities. Legacies don’t happen overnight. It’s an accumulation of living a life daily, monthly and yearly
You know your end will be there some day, prepare them for it. Make sure you tell them you are going to a better place. Tel them the path and the circumstances that led you to Jesus your Savior. That is the greatest legacy you can ever leave behind. Make sure that you impress on them what really matters in life. Only what’s done for Christ will last.
Gods power are not limited to a certain place or time. When Aliya died, nothing changed, because God stays the same. God protected and empowered Aliya and He did the same to Elisa. God will do the same to those who follow you up. Trust God. Jesus Christ is the same, today tomorrow and for ever after.
Gods power is not limited to a particular person. – When a great person dies, we think there will never be a person like him. When a man of God dies, nothing of God dies with him. Moses left Joshua; David left Solomon etc.
If you spend your life serving God and follow Him faithfully, the time will come that God will call you home and you will have successfully left a legacy and the baton of faith will be handed to your children and grandchildren. Gods work will then go on long after you have departed.
To live your life with the end in view, to leave a legacy that lasts, requires having the right perspective on life. It also means utilizing the right principles and embracing the right priorities of living.
