What kind of Legacy are you leaving?

What kind of LEGACY are you leaving behind?  What will people remember you by?  I know that this is an important to us as scrapbookers - as this is our goal in doing LOs - to leave a legacy of our lives. 

But what about more important things - spending time with family, making those meaningful moments with our family.  Are we so busy scrapping, designing etc that we miss these opportunities???

How about life / death???  Do you know where you will be when you die?  Will you be greeting your Saviour - Jesus Christ? 

The verse for today talks about this....

“who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,” (2 Timothy 1:9)

God wants a relationship with us - he planned it before the beginning of time.... He knew that we would need a Perfect payment for our sins - anything less would not suffice.  So He sent His one and only Son - Jesus - the only perfect one (He NEVER sinned) to die in our place.  He took our penalty for sin - our prison sentence (so to speak) - He took our punishment on Himself so that we could live forever with God.  Have you accepted Jesus' great love for you??? - He died for YOU!!! 

If you have accepted what Jesus is offering to you, what are you doing with His great love?  Are you sharing this Good News with others?  Are you spreading His great love with your family, friends?  Are you sharing your love in your LOs. 

Let's leave a legacy that really counts!  Make sure that future generations know where you stood in Christ!!!

Proverbs 3:35
The wise shall inherit glory, But shame shall be the legacy of fools.
