THE LEGACY-5

THE LEGACY-5
2Kings 20:5 “Turn again, and tell Hezekiah, the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David, thy father; I have heard thy prayer; I have seen thy tears; behold, I will heal thee; on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.”
 
2Kings 20:6 “And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake and for my servant David’s sake.”

Ephesians 4:32 “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
 
Romans 15:30 “Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;”
 
1Corinthians 4:10 “We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.”
 
Paul was simply teaching us how to leverage on the legacy of Christ and pattern our lives, decisions, and operations after it, just as Hezekiah did to David. Paul also said we should follow his example, just as he had learnt it from Jesus:
