Every one of us gets the opportunity to build a legacy with our life, but not every legacy will be remembered as good or for making a positive difference. If we want to leave a legacy that outlives us, we must be intentional about it. In this video, Pastor Sean Sears shares how you have the ability to leave a legacy that impacts eternity and how creating that legacy begins with the decisions you make today.



Life is short and eternity is long. You get one shot at life, and there are not do-overs


[Hebrews 9:27]

“And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment.”


[Ecclesiastes 7:2-4]

““Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies— so the living should take this to heart. Sorrow is better than laughter, for sadness has a refining influence on us. A wise person thinks a lot about death, while a fool thinks only about having a good time.”



Remembering that we will all someday look back on our lives is a great reminder TODAY about what we should prioritize most



[Matthew 13:44-46]

““The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field. “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!”


You can spend your life or invest it. Each day is like a dollar you spend or invest. Jesus says the wise man trades every single day he can for the Kingdom of God



[Matthew 6:19-21]

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”



[1 Corinthians 3:10-15]

“10 Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ. 12 Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. 13 But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. 14 If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. 15 But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.”


[Galatians 2:16]

“Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.”



[Matthew 9:36-38]

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.””
