When many people think of the word legacy they often think in terms of money or property that is left for future generations. That has its place, but what about the legacy in terms of the footprint we leave in the lives of others when we are gone? That is the influence and impact we had on others through the way we lived and the choices we made.

In this conversation we discuss the question of the legacy we leave and explore the following questions:

  • When my life comes to and end, what do I want my legacy to be?
  • How am I going to live today in the light of eternity?
  • How do I make the most of this finite time on earth I have?

So much of what we hope and long for is summarised in the following quote by Chris Wright:

“The new creation will start with the unimaginable reservoir of all that human civilisation has accomplished in the old creation— but purged, cleansed, disinfected, sanctified and blessed. . . Think of the prospect! All human language, literature, art, music, science, business, sport, technological achievement— actual and potential— all available to us. All of it with the poison of evil and sin sucked out of it forever. . . Whatever it may be like, we can rest assured that, for those who are in Christ, anything that has enriched and blessed us in this life will not be lost, but infinitely enhanced in the resurrection and anything that we have not been able to enjoy in this life (because of disability, disease or premature death— or simply through the natural limitations of time and space) will be amply restored or compensated for in resurrection life.”

Do join us in this conversation as we seek to live with confidence, joy, and the responsibility of knowing our life has consequences.

Let’s make a difference in a world where there’s so much darkness and sadness.
