Creating a Legacy for the Next Generation | The Mark Harrington Show | 12-12-19
In 2011, I launched Created Equal with the vision to raise up the next generation of leaders to take on the culture of death and win. I said, “if, at the end of my life, I do not see a long line of young apologists I have equipped behind me, I will have failed.”
We all want to count for something. We want to leave something behind that endures. We want to leave a legacy.
As Christians, that legacy should look very different from what the world aspires for.
Paul says in 2 Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Like an athlete we should be disciplined, strong, running the race like it’s a marathon.
It’s not how you start but how you finish that counts. We should be living each day with the finish line in mind.
When we reach milestones in our lives, we should take inventory. What does my life to stand for? How will I be remembered? Will my work carry on without me? What will be written on my tombstone?
John the Baptist provides us an excellent example of what it looks like to leave a legacy. Jesus said of John, “Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”
John’s ministry only spanned 18 months, but he was the greatest prophet of all time.
What made John so great? Was he just lucky? Was he just in the right place at the right time? Why did God choose him to be the forerunner of the messiah?
John preached like Elijah. He was last of the OT prophets who broke a 430-year silence.
John the Baptist was chosen because God could count on him to deliver the most important message ever – the coming of Jesus Christ.
And so, this should also be true of us. We need to be faithful to the cause of Christ.
Created Equal is not flashy. We are the blue-collar workers of the pro-life movement. Our goal is to consistently and faithfully proclaim the truth. We take the long view.
