We’ve received an amazing gift, and this gift comes with an amazing responsibility.

Legacy is our responsibility to the Mission.

GOD COLORS | MISSION SUNDAY

>> READ SERMON NOTES

(Luke 12:42-43, 48b, NLT) “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them. If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.

When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.”

GOD-COLORS

(Matthew 5:14, MSG) “You’re here to be light, bringing out the GOD-colors in the world.”

  • Jesus said that His Church is LIGHT that brings out the GOD-COLORS in the world

LIVING THE MISSION

(Matthew 5:15-16, MSG) “GOD is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with GOD, [our] generous Father in heaven.”

  • Our assignment in the Mission is to MULTIPLY not MAINTAIN
  • Our Mission is to spread the GOOD NEWS
  • Our Mission isn’t overwhelming if we follow Jesus’ STRATEGY

(Acts 1:8, NLT) “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

  • Jerusalem – OUR CITY
  • Judea & Samaria – OUR NATION
  • The Ends of the Earth – OUR WORLD

LEAVING A LEGACY | LEGACY SUNDAY

PASTOR MONTE YOUNG | 12/11/2016

>> READ SERMON NOTES

(Luke 12:42-43, 48b, NLT) “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them. If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.

When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.”

LEAVING A LEGACY

• Legacy isn’t private or secret, it’s OPEN and TRANSPARENT

(Matthew 5:16, NLT) “Let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”

HEART FOR THE HOUSE

(Psalm 26:6b-8, NLT) I come to your altar, O LORD, singing a song of thanksgiving and telling of all your wonders. I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.

• My CHURCH BUILDING plays a vital role in my ability to FULFILL THE MISSION in my city

Three reasons my church is important to me:

1. It’s a place to GATHER to WORSHIP with my community
2. It’s a place to BRING my friends and family to CONNECT them with GOD
3. It’s a place where I’m INSPIRED, EQUIPPED and EMPOWERED as a believer

(2 Chronicles 7:16, NLT) For I have chosen this Temple and set it apart to be holy—a place where my name will be honored forever. I will always watch over it, for it is dear to my heart.”

• I attract His PRESENCE to this space when I intentionally develop a HEART FOR THE HOUSE
