The Disciple Legacy

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled…” (John 14:27)

A Legacy is a gift to the next generation, and all who would follow their example! Its an invitation into one of the most substantial Kingdom realities available to the human heart. Being “in Christ” must never be measured by worldly standards. Jesus and His disciples were generous with their lives…

  1. Forsaking all to follow.
  2. Esteeming others as greater than themselves.
  3. Hearing the rhythm of the Father’s Heart.

Its living in the reality of the Father’s gift and the giving of abundant life, that shapes the character of all who receive. The world gives shadows… God offers us light! The world gives empty promises… Christ gives substance. The world gives that which is not bread, and cannot fill… God’s gifts are good, perfect, and satisfying. The world gives in vain, making wishes and lifeless evaluations. The world’s peace offers only a temporary comfort… while Christ gives the peace that goes beyond all understanding. Only Jesus says, “My peace I give unto you” as a legacy worth stepping into. That peace is a reality from another world… given and felt as a living principle in the soul. It offers roots and allows the rest of His promises to be fulfilled.

The Truth is the disciple legacy… worthy of the cost!
