May the Almighty Name of the Lord be praised. The Previous Sunday the Ag. Vicar Rev. Canon Geoffrey Byarugaba emphatically shared a Sermon on the Theme “Building a Family Legacy” drawing biblical references from Duet. 28:1-14 and 2 Pet. 1:3-11 respectively. He clearly pointed that a Family descends from a common father. He explained further the Key Word used i.e. ‘Building’ to figuratively imply [mean] a father who assembles things together or strengthens the Family Foundation by increasing on it. On the other hand the Preacher noted that ‘Legacy’ simply focuses on what kind of life we are living and that which we shall leave behind inclusive the inheritance/ possessions that are passed on to a predecessor. God Himself provided a mechanism on how a family legacy ought to be, starting from the creation of Adam and Eve who He gave responsibility and retrospectively blessed them with godly offspring.
Building a Family Legacy therefore entails, among others the following:
Building a Family Legacy entails that a Christian makes good use of every opportunity while she/he can, and also to spend her/his life style on pursuing Kingdom purposes rather than the worldly pleasures [Col. 3:1-2].
God’s promises are dependable.
