Don't leave a legacy of Lies

Don’t Leave a Legacy of LIES
Any upright or just person wants to leave a legacy behind him that shows the world a light, that lets people know that the world is a better place because of that person’s life.  In other words, we want to believe that our life meant SOMETHING.  No one wants to go to their grave knowing that their life was totally meaningless, and that the world is not any better than it was before we were born, that is pretty depressing.  But sadly, the older generation is NOT leaving a legacy that is uplifting or encouraging, rather they leave behind money, possessions, an ideology, they leave behind their opinions of the world and it has absolutely ZERO to do with JESUS CHRIST and HIS TRUT.  What a waste your life will be if you follow the legacy of this world, of people who rejected GOD for their OWN opinions.  The older generation at large is leaving a legacy that is not worthy to be looked at.  And they think that they have done something great for the world.  So many things have changed in the last 10 years, technology, how we view the world, so many things have changed, but VERY FEW people have truly come to Jesus and started storing up their treasure in HEAVEN.  If we don’t find our treasure in heaven with the Lord Jesus then our legacy will not even be worth looking at.  I want to read to you what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 6:19-21; “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but ay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  And also Jesus said in Matthew chapter 6:31-34; “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED TO YOU.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”   Sadly, this world is no seeking first the Kingdom of God, they are storing up all their treasures here on earth and the legacy they leave behind is a legacy of lies.  If we want to leave anything behind that is true and noble, it has to come from seeking first the Kingdom of God, because if we seek first HIS will then He can shine through us and people can see that light in us, no longer are they seeing OUR legacy, but they are seeking THE TRUTH OF GOD.  Do you want to leave your ow little legacy that will fizzle out and DIE?  Do you want to be a part of the deception of this world that has these lying legacy’s?  Do we want to leave behind a lie and at the end of our life when we die have absolutely nothing to show?  Do we want our life to be meaningless?  Or do we want to take part in the Kingdom of GOD, be connected to JESUS and to have even a part of His Kingdom.  If we seek first the Kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness, He will give us everything that we need, but we need to COME OUT OF THE WORLD and be separate.  Is your heart really with the LORD, will your life count because you were truly in Him?  Will your life be worthy to be looked at by others?  Or will you just be part of the deception?  May the grace of Jesus be with you
