Description

The first sermon in our series; "Legacy"

This week's scripture: 1 Samuel 17:37b-50

There is no sermon recording this week.

Beginning a Spiritual Legacy
Who is it that God is inviting you to create a spiritual legacy for? Your children, parents, friends?
For young David in 1 Samuel 17, he probably wasn't thinking about legacies, but he was thinking about who God is and how God could act in the situation with the Philistines and particularly in regards to Goliath. He believed that the Lord who saved him in different situations would surely save His people from the Philistines (1 Samuel 17:37). His faith was developing into a legacy for all Israel that would carry through to Jesus and the world.

What is a spiritual legacy?
Passing on spiritual truth from one generation to the next. What do you believe? How do you deal with doubt? When we live out our lives, people around us can see what we believe. Discussions, practical application, character, and devotional times are just some of the ways in which we pass on spiritual truths to those around us.

How does a spiritual legacy look?
You can see your spiritual legacy take shape as the people you spend most of your time with begin to display attitudes and behaviors reflecting the love of God. Each of us has our own gifts and purpose, so our spiritual legacy might take shape in others in many different forms, but the love of God will be evident.

When should you begin focusing on your spiritual legacy?
It is never too early or late. Whether your young or old, you have the power to influence the people who God places in your path at school, in the neighborhood, at work, in the community, in the home, and even with extended family.

Learn. Take time to do regular check-ups through self-reflection and mentoring to know where you are and where you are going. Then... do it.
Grow. Commit to always growing. Open the Bible, pray, love, engage every day.
Be. Be humble, true to yourself and God, listen, share, invite, and trust.
