Billy Graham once said, “The greatest legacy one can pass to one’s children and grandchildren is a legacy of character and faith.”
Anyone can live their own legacy of faith and pass it on to their children and grandchildren as Billy Graham did. The only necessity is that the person must be a born-again child of God. The person’s future defines their legacy, and their future begins today.
You don’t have to wait for more. You can begin to live your own legacy of faith today. Here is an overview you need to know about living faith based life legacy:
- Start from scratch:
Legacy is not just for those who were raised in Christian homes. It is for everyone who believes in Lord Jesus Christ. However, it might be a difficult task to live your own legacy of faith if you didn’t grow up in a family of faith. But you can start from scratch. Many powerful faith families began because of one person who was willing to break out of their past and create a new future.
- Get your own God:
Living a legacy of faith is making a relationship with God. God is all your own, not based on other’s experience. If you were raised in a house of faith and want to make a faith-based cause initiative, you should not live on your parents and grandparents’ faith. You have to get your own God. Getting your own God means you have your own experiences with him. When you have your own story with God, that’s your legacy.
- Leave your current legacy:
There are two types of legacy. One you want to keep and the one you should leave. If you were raised in a family of faith, you don’t have to assume that their legacy is also yours to live out. To have your own faith-based life legacy, you have to understand what the Lord is saying to you. If he is taking you away from the legacy in which you were raised, then listen to him and follow his path.
These are the keys everyone should need to know to live their own legacy of faith. There are some charitable organizations where you can also help to live a life dedicated to the Lord.
