Our legacy begins and ends with Jesus. For Jesus, leaving a legacy is about making disciples. We are both the product and producer of Jesus' legacy of discipleship.

What is the gospel? This is an important question not only for our own lives but also for the lives of those to whom we leave a legacy. Jesus left the gospel to a handful of followers when he ascended back to heaven and generations before us have (with the help of the Spirit) guarded the gospel so that we might know and follow Jesus. If we do not know what the gospel is, or the importance of keeping it safe, the Christian faith will die when we do, because if we lose the gospel we lose the faith.

Flourish the Family

Families are important. They are the foundation and building blocks of all society. Just like all major areas of our lives, God, as Creator, offers a blueprint for what a healthy family looks like. When we follow the guidelines that God lays out for families, we do so not simply to follow rules; instead, we follow God’s ways because it leads to flourishing and fulfillment. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 shows us the process for family discipleship, ensuring we can leave a legacy ‘from one generation to another.’ Our passage shows us that the family discipleship process ripples outward from our personal relationship with Jesus to our communities showing us that a flourishing family begins with YOU.

What will your story be? How will you be remembered? These are questions few think about but everyone will answer. In 2 Timothy, Paul is writing his last correspondence to his son in the faith, Timothy. In it, Paul recognizes he is facing the end of his life and recounts how he has lived in a way that sought to leave a legacy for the gospel of Jesus and the glory of God. In chapter 4:6-7, Paul shows us three truths about leaving a legacy: 1) We all leave a legacy, 2) A good legacy requires intentionality, and 3) An intentional legacy requires a new scorecard. Paul reminds us of the importance of legacy and reminds us that a legacy is left with your life.
