Create a legacy of faith
August 2, 2010
Many a man proclaims his own steadfast love, but a faithful man who can find?
Our kids have many heroes these days. They look up to celebrities, entertainers, athletes, and members of the military.
But do you know who today's real heroes are? I'll tell you. The real heroes of our day are faithful men who are determined to leave a legacy of faith for their families.
Now I thank God for women who love Jesus. But I want to speak directly to men right now, especially in relationship to how you raise your children. It's not uncommon for men to focus their life mission on their careers or on earning income. Society trains us to pursue these kinds of goals. And, of course, you and I need to provide for our families.
But men, if you make your life mission to live a godly life for the sake of your children, then your influence will last long beyond the lives of your children to touch generations!
You see, our spiritual lives are much like a relay race in which one generation passes the baton of faith to the next generation, and so on.
Make it your purpose in life to be a man who passes on a legacy of faith and love to your children just as if you were anchoring a race for eternity, because you are!
THE REAL HEROES OF OUR DAY ARE FAITHFUL MEN WHO ARE DETERMINED TO LEAVE A LEGACY OF FAITH FOR THEIR FAMILIES.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
