Today my pastor gave a sermon on how to pass on your legacy. Here are his topics, scriptures, and notes combined with my personal notes. I hope this helps you get started with your own family legacy!
Passing On a Legacy – 2 Chronicles: 17-20
Pastor Mike Romberger, Mission Hills Church
How to Pass-On a Godly Legacy…
#1: To pass on a godly legacy you MUST start with yourself.
You can’t give away what you don’t have. As goes the leader so goes the follower. What you say must match what you do. You must have authenticity.
#2: To pass on a godly legacy you MUST make that your highest priority.
You must have intentionality, commitment, focus. Be present. Set goals for the family just like you do with other parts of your life.
Example focus areas:
#3: To pass on a godly legacy you MUST take an uncompromising stand.
It takes courage and strength. You must tear some things down to build some things up. There will be conflict! Stick to your guns.
#4: To pass on a Godly legacy you MUST pray for God’s power
God is the one who changes a heart.
2 Chronicles 20:12
We do not know what to do but our eyes are on you.
