A Legacy of Faithfulness
Topic: Faith Scripture: Matthew 4
A legacy of faithfulness means that those who come after us will know eternal joy in Jesus. Your faithfulness today means that joy is experienced now; we don't have to wait for Heaven because Jesus is here with us today. Our faith in Jesus produces an everlasting joy. The Bible tells us that every meaningful, substantial, and durable joy-producing enterprise is never obtained by taking short-cuts. When you short-cut your faith, you short-cut your joy. And joy requires pain, conviction, and dependence. It may not be the easy road, but it is the faithful one. Every parenting and life endeavor we encounter forces us to make a choice, the faithful one or the short-cut. Which legacy will you leave?
