Texan Legacy: Leaving a Legacy of Faith
March 2nd, 2017 / By: Jeff Steed | Southern Baptists of Texas Foundation / comments
Hebrews 11:8, 11-12: By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore. [NIV]
The legacy of faith that Abraham and Sarah left for their family and generations to come was monumental. They were faithful to God, and they were blessed to have a legacy of faith that significantly demonstrated their relationship with God. Because of their faithfulness, the Hebrew nation was birthed. Through the lives of Abraham and Sarah, God was glorified!
Consider at this very moment leaving this Earth forever and stepping into Heaven. What would be your legacy of faith for family and ministry? What legacy would be left that demonstrates your relationship with God? Will God be glorified through your life and the legacy of faith remaining after your passing?
