Living a Life of Legacy

Over the last few days, I have thought about what I want people to say about me. I want everyone who comes in contact with me to see Jesus. I want them to be blessed for having known me. I don’t care if people say I am a bit odd or a little too intense. That’s okay.

But I would be mortified to think that someone could hang around me long enough and not know how special they are and how much they are loved by God.  I truly believe that my central message in life revolves around helping people see themselves as God sees them. Why do we tend to look at ourselves and only see the worst? Don’t we know that God looks at us and sees His Son?

Don’t we know that our identity is much more than what we look like on the outside? Don’t we know that God cares about us because of who we are not what we can do for Him? Don’t we get that grace means we can stop pretending? God knows us better than we know ourselves.

A life of legacy is what Jesus lived. It is what we are called to experience if we know God and His life lives through us.

What are you living for? Is your life leaving a legacy that will bless others?

Remember it is never too late to start living a life of legacy.
