A word from Tim to you

Dear Friend,

I remember it like it was yesterday. It was just before the wedding rehearsal and I was standing with my soon-to-be son-in-law, Greg. He and Darcy had decided to display wedding pictures of their parents and grandparents in the lobby of the church. The display was powerful: my parents 62 years, Trudy’s parents 50 years, both sets of grandparents 62 years and 50 years, and my marriage on track at over 30 years.

As I looked at the pictures, I told Greg what a rich marriage heritage he had and that his job was to “keep the legacy going.” Because every decision we make today leaves a legacy – a legacy that will impact for good or bad, a legacy that will draw people closer to Christ or push them away.

At KSBJ, we are aware that we are leaving a legacy. Every song we play, every word we speak, every prayer we offer, every community service project we highlight, every concert we do, every station we mentor leaves a legacy. We desire to make it a good legacy.

Jesus said in John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” The last part of the verse doesn’t mean we can’t do anything. We know we can do things. But if we want the impact to last forever and we want it to be good, then we need to stay plugged into Christ. When we do that, we will have a great legacy.

So how is my little challenge to Greg going? He and Darcy celebrate six years of marriage this June. They had a recent addition about two months ago, a little baby boy Bauer – my first grandson. So it looks like in a couple or three decades if Bauer decides to marry, I hope Greg will tell him the same message before his wedding: “Bauer, keep the legacy going.”

Blessings,

Tim
