Empire vs. Legacy


In today’s society it’s easy to become disconnected with who you truly are.  Today, I want to look at the terms empire vs. legacy.  The definition of empire is possessing supreme power, sovereignty; sway or dominion.  Legacy is something (as memories or knowledge) that comes from a person of the past.  Personally, I don’t feel the need to try to remain relevant with time.  True identity can only be found in the person of Jesus.

Have you have ever heard people boldly declaring that they are building their empire?  How can you build something that already exists on the inside of you?  In the beginning of time God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth (Genesis 1: 26, KJV).  The common mistake that we make is that we forget how powerful we really are.  Dominion exists and lives on the inside of our being.  Friends, it’s up to us if we decide to walk in our God-given authority on a constant and consistent basis.

Legacy can be viewed as one of the many gifts that keeps on giving even after we leave this earth.  It’s our lasting impression on others that have the capacity to strengthen not only ourselves but the world around us.  Legacy is more than just money or possessions that is intended for equal distribution for our family upon our death.  Beloved, take the time and examine your own life.  How will you be remembered?  What is the lasting impact that you will have on your family and your community?  Until we meet again… I love you to life!
