Leaving a Legacy to Treasure

Posted on Updated on

Tomorrow morning at Providence, we will explore again the challenge we face in passing on a legacy worth leaving to the next generation.  Since we as followers of Christ call Him our greatest treasure, are we treating the treasure as something to be honored and loved, preserved and passed on with pleasure to those we love the most.

The sermons in this series will be available at http://www.pray.org each week for the six weeks of this special focus.  At Providence we love our kids and students and want to do all that we can to give them what means the most in this world to us (as well as the world to come!).  They will not hold onto what they do not treasure, which accounts for the fact that so many who have been brought up to believe rightly have never learned what it means to love deeply.

The challenge?  To present Jesus Christ as He really is and to demonstrate our affection for Him as the priceless treasure who is worth giving up everything just to know!  Pray for us as we lay out the biblical calling to show Him in all His wonder, glory and beauty.  Then pray that we will be faithful to live out our faith in Him in such a way that the next generation…and the next…and the next…will benefit from the inheritance we have passed along, just as we have received it.

Flash mobs are getting to be too common to have the impact they did a year or so ago…or so I thought till I saw this today!  What a moving way to see and hear a tribute to the joy of knowing our Savior–He is truly the joy every person’s heart longs for at the deepest level!

In Sabadell, a city in the Catalonia region of Spain, this flash mob captures something in each of us that loves what is beautiful.  And our Father in heaven is the source of all that is lovely and pure.  Thanks be to God for such a wonderful way to praise His name!
