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.

    thx so much for this morning’s challenge. always, always needed. and your reminder at the end to not get sucked into guilt reminded me of a brief post i recently came across from paul tripp called, “parenting: the joyful impossibility” that was also filled w/ wonderful gospel grace for this sacred, yet often-intimidating privilege.
