Receiving Legacy (2 of 4) A legacy is about creating memories and experiences together. It can be intentional; or it can be just by chance. Every person is going to leave a legacy.

Leaving a Legacy (3 of 4) A good man (or a good woman) leaves an inheritance to his children's children - Proverbs 13:22. One of the greatest legacies you can leave your children is to unconditionally love and value every one of them. Bless them - speak words over every child. Connect emotionally. Leave a legacy of Faith - prayer, devotions, a relationship with God. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom - Psalm 111:10
Our Legacy in Christ (4 of 4) "Go make disciples..". Leave a legacy of your walk in Christ. Impart what you have to other people, intentionally. You are created for good works. God has designed you to accomplish something meaningful with your life.
In the Old Testament, the inheritance given to God's people was a physical piece of land in the Middle East - but they were required to possess it. Jesus left us: His example, His Words, and the Holy Spirit; but you have to arise, and by faith displace what holds you back from enjoying it. Jesus wants us to stir up and possess.
"...you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise, who is the earnest of our inheritance (just a deposit), until the redemption of the purchased possession... (payment in full)"
