Wrapped : Limits, Leftovers, and Legacy

This week we continued Wrapped with a message titled: Limits, Leftovers, and Legacy.

God isn’t concerned with what we don’t have. It’s often the things that we do have and overlook or despise that he will end up using to fuel our legacy.

Check out this week's message as Pastor Josh makes the connection between our limits, our leftovers, and our legacy.

Message Notes

Limit: the furthest extent of one's physical or mental endurance.
Legacy: an interconnection across time, with a need for those who have come before us and a responsibility to those who come after us.

John 6:1-14 (NIV)
Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias), and a great crowd of people followed him. Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples. The Jewish Passover Festival was near. When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.

Mark 6:34 (NIV)
When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

John 6:1-14 (NIV)
Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!” Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?

You never know what Jesus is up to with the “little” somethings you have to give.

John 6:1-14 (NIV)
Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.

There is more to this life than this life.

Giving to something that will outlive me.

Legacy

Our Legacy offering took place this past Sunday on December 12th but we will continue keep the offering open through December 31st. 

Legacy is an offering that requires sacrifice and one that builds a legacy for future generations. This offering enables us to take a giant leap forward in fulfilling the big opportunities God has placed before us.
