Leaving a Legacy Ministries with Codi Gandee

Using the Word to Encourage Others



City On A Hill


Matthew 5:14

My husband and I have practiced light management with all of our kids. If we turn off the lights; they’re asleep. It is so nice. We can change up bedtimes to our convenience. We can get them to go to bed earlier when they’re in need of some sleep. Light management is great and I highly recommend it…unless you’re planning on taking your toddler to church camp.

Then it is maddening.

My two year old couldn’t fall asleep because of the bright light in the common area of the dorm. We, and by we I mean my son, myself and every other light sleeper in the cabin were awake until 2:30 am.

That little bit of light had a huge effect on us.

But in the midst of my desperation for some sleep The Spirit encouraged me: your light is shining in a dark world; your single light is making a difference.

How amazing! Then I began to consider all of the people that I was at camp with, my church family, my family and friends that live for Jesus, Christians around the world: we are making a difference!!

At times we may get discouraged because of the condition this world is in but rejoice. You are serving the purpose you were created for. You are offering hope to a dying world. Be assured that your light is shining into the darkness and it is impacting others.

Keep shining for Jesus. Because even a single light can greatly effect those who see it.


Proverbs 29:18

Matthew 6:22-23

We are going to leave a legacy behind when we die. What kind of legacy would you like yours to be?

One of a great faith, a life lived in dedication to Jesus? Or would you rather be remembered as successful in your career, having plenty of money and fame?

If we are looking to The Lord, looking to glorify Him, looking for His return then our lives are a beacon of light.

However, if we are only looking to get ahead in this world, to see ourselves lifted up we are full of darkness.

Our vision is the indicator of our walk with Christ.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
