Builders Part 3: Build a Legacy

I Corinthians 3:10-15 “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.”

3 steps for building a legacy…

  1. Move from passion to action

2 Samuel 7:1–3 (NLT) “When King David was settled in his palace and the Lord had given him rest from all the surrounding enemies, 2 the king summoned Nathan the prophet. “Look,” David said, “I am living in a beautiful cedar palace, but the Ark of God is out there in a tent!” 3

1 Chronicles 28:2 (NLT) “David rose to his feet and said: “My brothers and my people! It was my desire to build a Temple where the Ark of the LORD’s Covenant, God’s footstool, could rest permanently. I made the necessary preparations for building it.”

2. Move from father to son

1 Chronicles 28:6–9 (NLT) “He (GOD) said to me, ‘Your son Solomon will build my Temple and its courtyards, for I have chosen him as my son, and I will be his father. 7 And if he continues to obey my commands and regulations as he does now, I will make his kingdom last forever.”

1 Chronicles 29:3–10 (NLT) 3 “And now, because of my devotion to the Temple of my God, I am giving all of my own private treasures of gold and silver to help in the construction. This is in addition to the building materials I have already collected for his holy Temple….

verse 9 “The people rejoiced over the offerings, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the LORD, and King David was filled with joy.”

Hebrews 11:39 “All these people are known for their faith, but none of them received what God had promised. 40 God planned to give us something better so that they would be made perfect, but only together with us.”
