The Significance of Legacy

Living deep within the heart of every person is a passion and desire to live a life that truly matters. We want to make a contribution for Christ and make a difference in the life of others. We want to live in such a way that the world is better, because we lived well and finished well. In 2 Timothy 4:7, Paul reminds us to fight the good fight and finish the race. Ultimately, we want to leave a legacy that lives on long after we’re gone.

Life Word is a simple, powerful tool to identify a single word that helps you leave a legacy that truly makes a difference in this world and in the lives of others. Your Life Word defines and drives you to live for Christ. It’s a one word vision for your life that inspires you to live your best life and make your greatest impact—all for the glory of God.

In James 4:14, James says that life is short—it’s like a vapor that appears and is gone. And because it’s short, we are compelled to make the most of it. Life Word helps you navigate true north and live a life that leaves an impact for Christ. It will help you discover your God-ordained purpose, maximize God-appointed opportunities, and leave a God-honoring legacy.

Ordinary men and women over the years who have lived with conviction left enduring legacies and changed the world. It’s fun to consider what their possible Life Words would be:

For Martin Luther, was it Reform?

Apostle Paul’s might have been Grace.

Mother Theresa’s was undoubtedly Compassion.

King Solomon’s would be Wisdom.

And perhaps the greatest Life Word was Jesus’s legacy of Love.

As we take you on this journey to find your Life Word, ask the Lord about possible words that might define your legacy. This word will ultimately help shape your destiny and maybe even history! Your Life Word is discovered by defining your power, determining your purpose, and discovering your passion. 

Moses prayed in Psalm 90:12 for the Lord to teach him to count every day carefully. God has given you only one life, so make every day count. Remember, the power of legacy is all about what you give, not what you get; it’s not about you, but others. Everyone leaves a legacy, so make your legacy matter!
