As the years pass, those with a desire to glorify God by their life begin to think more and more about the legacy they will leave behind. That thought will influence what we do with our remaining years, energy and resources. Think about this question carefully.
Billy Graham went to be with his Lord and Master a few days ago. In one of the last interviews with this servant, he was asked what he wanted people to remember him for? He replied; “That I was faithful to the Gospel.” When asked what he would have done differently, he replied; “I would have prayed more and studied the Bible more than I did.”
This brings up conversations that Tim and I have often had regarding this ministry, New Foundations International. There is nothing more important to us, should the Lord take us home before He returns, than leaving behind a tool that points to Scripture and a memory of being faithful to biblical principles. These are principles that produce church planting movements and train indigenous leaders to strengthen, encourage and build strong existing churches that multiply. They must be self-sustaining, self-supporting, self-governing, and reproducing. Our goal through such movements is that every people group in the world be reached with the gospel because indigenous leaders are committed to God’s glory by following biblical models.
What legacy will you leave behind? What will you be known for as your highest priority?
