Leaving a Legacy

This past Sunday Ryan did a great job preaching at MKCC in our series, 30 Days to Live. He spoke on "Leaving a Godly Legacy", challenging and thought provoking message.

Today I read a post over at old AOG ministers blog, Earnest Anderson on the same subject:

"Everybody leaves something whether it is good or bad, but we must make sure we leave the best and the right sort of things. One cannot have lived without passing on something to the next generation and one must make sure that it is something of true value.

There is something more important than leaving riches, properties etc. Many people think it is very important to go in for all that is of a material order and so spend nearly all, if not the most of their lives, in hot pursuit of material gain thinking that such is the be and end of everything. They reckon that if they can leave something of vast fortune to their offspring and heirs that they have accomplished something of note. They little realise that there are things far more valuable than any treasures.

Illustration: Jesus Christ left a legacy. He said on one occasion to His disciples; “My peace I leave with you” – John 14: 27. That is something worth leaving and inheriting. It is not a material possession but an absolute necessity if life is to be lived with any real pleasure and satisfaction.

Here are some of the choice and precious things that one can bequeath in life and memory."

1. LEAVING A HOLY CHARACTER

2. LEAVING A HEAVENLY ANOINTING

3. LEAVING A HAPPY SERVICE AND MINISTRY

4. LEAVING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

5. LEAVING A HARVEST
