Faith devo.

This devotion has a good story of faith growing from a mustard seed.

Through our faithful witness, we can bless future generations to come. Let’s strengthen our homes and produce, by His grace, a legacy for the Lord.

A Legacy for the Lord

Did He not make them one, having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring.
Malachi 2:15

Recommended Reading: Malachi 2:10-16

Jane, 18, a widow with two small children, descended into deep depression. One day while walking along a river with thoughts of suicide, she heard a ploughman on the other bank. As he began his work in the fields, he whistled Christian hymns and something about his spirit touched Jane. If a simple ploughman could display such enthusiasm for the mundane work of his life, why couldn’t she? Armed with a new perspective, Jane returned to Dublin where she answered the call to follow Christ. She began praying earnestly for her children and for the next twelve generations who would follow her.

Among the results? Her son, Grattan, became a minister and helped trigger the 1859 revival in Ireland. From his descendants alone have come a host of Christian workers who have traveled the world with the Gospel, including the noted Christian author Dr. Os Guinness.1

Through our faithful witness, we can bless future generations to come. Let’s strengthen our homes and produce, by His grace, a legacy for the Lord.

A Single Thought: Wherever life takes us, our witness goes too—it is the legacy of a believer in Jesus Christ.

1 Chronicles 29 

The following go together, and you can’t have one without the other:1. Rejoicing in God (being thankful, but much more)

2. Willing, sacrificial, and joyful giving. 1 Chr 29:9

3. Glorifying God.

The People and David showed this in 1 Chronicles 29.

From Crawford Loritts’ March 1, 2015 message at

 http://www.moodyradio.org/Living-a-Legacy/2015/03-01-2015—A-Willing-Sacrifice,-Part-1/ 

(2 Chorinthians 9:7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.)

In part 2 (Mar. 8), Crawford gives four applications and his conclusion is 

Life was given to us in order for us to give our lives back to God to be a showcase for his Glory.

This is from Romans 12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
