Carlie: We’re super excited about this new series, Living a Legacy. You know, God wants you to leave an impact in this world that’s going to last for generations. Find out how to live a legacy today.
Announcer: Why live a normal life when you could be living the abundant life. Welcome to the Abundant Life program with Ashley and Carlie Terradez.
Ashley: Hello, and welcome to Abundant Life. So glad you’ve joined us today here in the lounge, we have got an exciting show for you today, praise God. So thanks for joining us. I’m telling you we’re here to empower you in the promises of God. Praise God. I believe wherever you’re watching from, God is with you. In fact, we don’t just believe, we know God is with them amen.
Ashley: God is with the people watching. So praise God, thanks for being with us. Hey, we’re talking about living a life of legacy today. Living a life of legacy. Do you know that God does everything through relationships. In fact, his whole plan to reach the whole world was through Jesus, his son, and through Jesus, leaving a legacy or living a life of legacy. And it’s so excited to see this, and we’re going to study some of this out and see how you could be a part of that.
That’s right. You are a part of God’s legacy. Praise God. You’re a part of Jesus’ plan to reach the whole world. And it doesn’t matter how young you are. You know, sometimes, we talk about legacy. In fact, we talk about leaving a legacy, you automatically think old people right?
Carlie: Right. Like inheritance or-
Ashley: Like if someone starts talking about, “Are you leaving a legacy?” It’s like, “Hey, I’m not that old. Steady on.” You know? So we’re like in the middle here-
Carlie: So how do we live a life of legacy?
Ashley: Well, that’s right. It’s, we’re talked about living a life of legacy, like not leaving a legacy. So, people when they get old, they talk about leaving a legacy and people when they’re younger, they don’t even think about legacy. So I think-
Carlie: Most of the time they are just thinking about lunch.
Ashley: They think about lunch, that’s right. At our age, it’s really interested, in our age we have people older than us that call us young, or you’re just young. Those youngsters, those young people.
Carlie: I like those people.
Ashley: You like those people? You like hanging around the older people? [crosstalk] They call you young.
And then the younger people, they’re also adults. I mean like some of our staff and things, I mean, they’re adults, they have children and mortgages and everything. They call us old. So really I think it depends what perspective you’re looking from. Whether your young or old or not.
Carlie: This reminds me, when I was like five years old, I remember my parents thinking it was really, really funny. They asked me a question, what do you, what do I think middle aged meant? [crosstalk] And I said, Oh, I don’t know about 25. And they thought that was the funniest thing. And now I understand why the jokes funny.
Ashley: Yeah. It seems every year, younger gets older.
Carlie: I don’t know, yeah. [crosstalk]. Every year I get older-
Ashley: They’re young, they’re like fifties. So, let’s get that out of the way. It doesn’t matter how young you are today watching. We have people, we have testimonies of people writing in and say their children watch this show. That’s right. It doesn’t matter what age you are today while you’re watching, you could be 9 or 90, praise God. We’ve got something for you because we’re not talking about leaving a legacy, we’re talking about living a legacy. There’s a big difference. We’re talking about actually, while your on Earth, here on Earth what type of legacy are you living? Are you living a legacy? You know, God wants you to live a legacy. God wants your life to make an impact. Praise God. In fact, God’s given you everything you need to live a life of legacy. That’s what we are going to look at today.
Carlie: You know, I’m thinking of that scripture is in John 15:16 he says that Jesus was saying, “You didn’t choose me, but I chose you and chose you that you might bear fruit and that your fruit will remain.” God wants us to make a lasting in impact in the world. So that it’s going to go on for generations, not just how we get through the day, but way bigger than that. And that’s really what we’re talking about when we’re, when we’re talking about legacy here.
Ashley: Amen. It really is. And in one particular area we’re going to look at is in the idea of mentorship, the mentor and the mentee, how we can actually receive from other people. So again, it doesn’t matter how old or young you are, praise God. We should all have mentors and mentees. And I did look it up. Mentee is a real word. It seriously- it started- [crosstalk].
Carlie: It’s not like a sea creature?
Ashley: No, it’s a real- mentee. [crosstalk] Mentee is a real word.
Carlie: That’s a manatee.
Ashley: I looked and it and I was like, “Is mentee really a word?” And so I looked it up. And when I wrote it out, my spell-check little red line didn’t come up. So I figured that must be a real word- [crosstalk].
Carlie: So it must be good.
Ashley: But then I Googled it and it’s a real word. So mentors and mentees, people that receive and the people that are given. And you know, even when you start out young, you can be in your, in your teens or, we’ve got children and, I’m thinking of our middle son, he has, he does, he helps out and children’s church and things like that, so even at his young age, he’s already leaving a, living legacy. Actually showing these, these children an example of how to live-
Carlie: It’s leadership.
Ashley: It’s leadership. And then I think it’s 1 Corinthians 11:1, 1 Corinthians chapter 11, verse one; Paul says, “follow me as I follow Christ or imitate me as I imitate Christ,” depending on what translation you read. So even if you’re a young person, you can be a mentor to people. And if you’re an older person, you can obviously be a mentor. And what we find is it shifts, when you’re, when you’re younger, you’re going to have more mentors, hopefully more people that you look up to, more people you’re learning from. And then as you get older, there’s probably less people you’re learning from and more people you’re giving out to more people that are learning from you.
Ashley: So even some of our, our fathers, if you like in the favor around us at the moment, they still have people older than them. You know, I’m thinking of, Andrew Womack, who we’re associated with and I might be referring to him quite a lot on this program, but you know, he’s my mentor, if you like, or one of our mentors, but then he still has pastor Bob Nichols, who’s older than him, who’s also pointed to him. So I think whatever age you’re at, you can still have mentors-
Carlie: And you’re always learning.
Ashley: Yeah that’s right. And you can still be pouring into people. So we’re going to be looking at that today. And I don’t want people to just think, well, I’m not old enough to be a mentor yet. No, you’re a mentor where you’re at. People are watching you, people are following you. And then one of the greatest examples we have of, of a mentor and a mentee, if you like, is Paul and Timothy. In fact, the relationship between Paul and Timothy is so established that people even make this statement they’ve made a statement out of it; he’s Timothy, or that person’s, so-and-so’s Timothy or I’m so-and-so’s Timothy. They actually make it- and you know, people are, hopefully they know what that means.
Carlie: Coined a phrase.
Ashley: They’ve coined the phrase. That’s what I was looking for. They’ve coined the phrase, coined the phrase. I’m this Timothy or he’s my Paul. Because Paul and Timothy had such an established relationship, Paul definitely mentored Timothy and Timothy learned from Paul and then reproduced himself, praise God. And I know that a lot of people will say, if you’re not reproducing yourself, if you’re not pouring into someone else, if you’re not leading people, then really, ultimately it doesn’t matter what you do in life. If you’re not reproducing it and not, not living a legacy so that it’s going to go on beyond you, then ultimately you’re a failure. Because all you’ve done, and I know that’s a harsh, harsh thing to say, isn’t it.
Carlie: It is.
Ashley: But if all you do is just your lifetime and it doesn’t go on beyond you-
Carlie: Well it ends with you.
Ashley: If it just ends with you then that’s it. And I’m not saying, you know, I don’t necessarily agree that you’re a failure because you’re not, you can, you can still have a big impact, but really the biggest impact is going to be when you reproduce yourself and see your legacy go on, see what you’ve, God’s done in you carry on.
Carlie: And this, this is the model that Jesus set for us. He didn’t just teach a few people and then leave and, everything finished there. His whole ministry was about discipleship. His whole ministry was about, he had legacy in mind while he was still walking the Earth.
Ashley: Amen. That was His whole focus. In fact he had, you know, Jesus had a, his 12 disciples obviously, and this little side note, you know, Jesus was the greatest mentor, right. And you know, he came down to Earth to really live a legacy. And yet one of his students, if you like, failed right? So Judas Iscariot failed, so even the perfect mentor still had someone fail. It’s not always on you. We’ll cover this later. As a mentor, is not always on you. Don’t, we’re not responsible for how are students-
Carlie: You have free will.
Ashley: They have free will still. But Jesus had 12 disciples that you really spent a lot of time with. Remember Jesus came down to reach the entire world. And how did he do it? By spending most of his time with just 12 people. And then he had his inner circle of three, which really he’s, there, Peter, James and John, he took up to the Mount of Transfiguration.
Those are the three who he got even closer to than the 12. And then he had his one, who we really got close to, the apostle John. In fact, he called himself the disciple that Jesus loved. So even Jesus had levels of mentorship, but he spent most of his time with 12 people and then those 12 people went and reached 120 and then so on. And then 2000, and then 3000. So really Jesus had legacy on his mind. He was already thinking-
Ashley: How is this going to go on? If he just had big meetings and stood up and just preached to thousands of people at once, all the time, then it wouldn’t have gone on as well as it did.
Ashley: What he did was he discipled. He discipled these 12 men, and 11 of them went on and carried on this legacy, carried on this message, carried on the gospel. And guess what happened today? We have Christianity alive and kicking, healthier than ever, praise God.
Ashley: We’ve literally billions of people, professing Jesus as their Lord and Savior. So it worked, amen. Leaving a legacy works. Mentors and mentees work. Praise God. This is the apostle Paul writing a letter here to Timothy. And I’m picking this up in a 2 Timothy chapter two verse one, 2 Timothy chapter two, verse one. It says, “You therefore, my son,” he is talking to Timothy. This might be one of the last letters that Paul wrote by the way. So this was late on in his life. He said, “You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” And verse two, “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” So Paul is saying to Timothy, look what you’ve learned from me, you go now and teach to others and it doesn’t just end there. Those people will then be able to teach others. This is the exponential growth effect. This is, this is compounded interest if you’d like, because if Timothy goes and teaches a few people, and then those few people teach a few people, now we have the potential to reach the world literally.
Carlie: So there’s a lot in just that passage of scripture. You know, there is a hearing, there is a hearing of the Word, but then there is a committing and intrusting to people that are faithful. That’s not just to anybody-
Carlie: That’s to people that are faithful, that have proven themselves to be attentive or to have those that have the ability to hear.
Carlie: Because I think sometimes, we talked about how Jesus only had 12 disciples. He was very intentional about the people that he selected and, we’re going to cover some of these things I’m sure in the series as we go through. But we can’t be intentional with everybody that we meet. We can’t spend that level of time and mentorship and discipleship with everyone that we meet. So he was real selective. The things that you have heard we need to be hearing, but we need to be selective about who we step into that kind of level of relationship with.
Carlie: And then the consequences of those actions is that those people that are hearing that are qualified to, to be students will then go on and replicate themselves in others.
Carlie: There is, there is an ability that goes on beyond that, that one relationship.
Ashley: Yeah. And Paul modeled that, he modeled that by the way, he poured into Timothy. And that was one of the ways that the gospel spread throughout all that area. Praise God. So, it’s a great a place to start there, the relationship between Paul and Timothy. We are going to look at- we’re going to break down some of the, some of the things that happened between them. But the other verse I want to read out now is, is from Titus. Titus two and three. Have you got that?
Carlie: Yeah. [crosstalk] In the Amplified- That’s the version you want right? Titus 2:3 in the Amplified said, “Bid the older woman is similarity to be reverent and devout in their deportment,” or behavior, “as becomes those engaged in sacred service, not slanderers or slaves to drink. They are to give good counsel and be teachers of what is right and noble. So that they will wisely train the young women to be sane and sober of mind (temperate, disciplined) and to love their husbands and their children,” “To be self-controlled chaste, homemakers, good-natured, (kindhearted), adapting and subordinating themselves to their husbands, that the word of God may not be exposed to reproach (blasphemed or discredited).
Ashley: That’s a mouthful.
That’s as a lot, isn’t it? [crosstalk]
Carlie: It’s a lot of really challenging words in there.
Ashley: Basically I had you read that whole scripture, but basically the essence of this is what’s going on here is that the older women are being encouraged to train the younger women. And also the older men. If we went on, it also talks about the older men training the younger men, in basically Paul saying, you know what you train these, make sure the older women are training the younger women, make sure they’re showing them the ways they should do things and showing them how to respect their husbands. How to hear the word of God, how to be good-natured, kindhearted, all things like this. And basically she’s saying that they’re saying here that the woman she should be modeling this. It’s not just by words, it’s modeling it. It is actually living it out, praise God. And I’m telling you, this is so important.
When we get hold of this, we’re going to find out that we’re going to be able to receive more from others. And we’re going to be able to help more people. When you get hold of this concept, when you get hold of this concept of living a legacy it’s going to make your life purposeful. It doesn’t matter what you’re going through. It doesn’t matter where you are right now. Doesn’t matter what part of the world you’re at right now. You can live a legacy and you can be pouring into people. You can be, you can be helping people and modeling Christ to people and showing people the goodness of God, praise God. And then you can also be receiving from people. You can receive the goodness of God. You can receive what God has for you, from others. So I’m- this is, this is a great thing to learn about and to break down; this is 1 Corinthians 4:14-16. This is 1 Corinth- if you’ve got your Bible, this is a 1 Corinthians 4:14-16. Do you want to read this? This is- [crosstalk 00:00:12:53]
Carlie: It says, it says here, “I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you. For though you might have 10,000 instructors in Christ, you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. Therefore, I urge you, to imitate me.”
Ashley: Amen. This is Paul. And Paul was very- Paul was so into this legacy. He was so into-
Carlie: It is very fatherly, actually the tone of it.
Ashley: It is. It is very fatherly. And what he was doing is he was pouring himself into these churches and these church leaders. And what you’re saying here is, imitate me, verse 16, “I urge you, imitate me.” And that’s a strong statement. He’s saying, follow me as I follow Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1 says, and here he says, “you have- although you have 10,000 instructors,” if you study this out, it’s actually means adolescent instructors- or boy tutors-
Carlie: Boy, boy instructors.
Ashley: Yeah, boy tutors. What we’re looking for, as far as, looking for people that are actually going to take us up to the next level. And we’re going to be looking at some of the characteristics of a good father figure, a good spiritual father or mentor. And we’re also going to look at the good characteristics of a mentee, someone who’s a son, who’s going to receive from that person.
And I’ll tell you, it’s going to really help you. And you can be, like right now in my life, I’m a- I know I’m a, a spiritual son to some people, but also now I’m pouring into some people. When people are looking to me, not just my natural children, but people looking to me for leadership and to receive from, from my ministry and our ministry. So we were in both roles at the moment, which is good. It’s an honor.
Carlie: It’s healthy.
Ashley: It’s an honor, praise God. Everyone needs a Paul. Everyone needs someone over them that’s pouring into them, someone with more experience, someone who’s got their best interests at heart, who’s pouring into them. And everyone needs a Timothy, who they’re pouring into and they’re helping, praise God, helping up. So-
Ashley: So before we finished this teaching, we also want to pray for you. We want to impart to you. In fact, I believe God’s got a word for you today. So we’re going to minister to you, praise God. But before we do that, we’ve got some exciting announcements we want to share with you. So, so watch these. These are going to empower you, praise God.
Announcer: God has chosen you. The word says, he’s ordained you. He set you apart, that you might bear fruit and that your fruit might remain. You know, he wants you to make a lasting impact in this world. He wants you to live legendary.
Speaker 4: Amen. So go to the website, TerradezMinistries.com/legendary and check out this month’s growth track. It’s going to really help you, praise God.
Announcer: In these short television programs, we really don’t have enough time to be able to go into depth on everything that God has for you on this subject of living legendary. So we have more information, more teaching resources, available to you, on our website by these growth tracks.
Speaker 4: Amen. We’ve got lots of free teachings. You can get product coupons. You can sign up and get devotionals on this subject. So going around website, TerradezMinistries.com/legendary I’m telling you, you want to be a part of this it’s awesome.
Ashley: Hey, I’m glad you’re with us, praise God. We’re looking at mentorship. We’re looking at living a life of legacy, praise God. And thanks for coming back. We’ve got a question here before we get back into our teaching that I want us to answer because people have been writing in and asking this question, you’re very welcome to write in and ask us questions. The, the address is on your screen right there, or it’s TerradezMinistries.com. You can go to TerradezMinistries.com and leave us a question. And this question is, is coming, and it’s a very common question.
And it’s from Celine, praise God. So thanks for watching Celine. She says, “how do we fight discouragement if there has been a delay in seeing a healing manifest.” So, we encourage questions here. So how do you know, how does someone who’s fighting? You know, we have a lot of viewers who, who understand that it’s God’s will for them to heal. You know, it’s God’s will for you to be well every time. God’s a good God.
Ashley: And it’s his will for you to be well. But if someone’s fighting discouragement, because they’re not seeing the healing manifest in the natural bodies, what should they do?
Carlie: Man, there’s a- there’s a whole lot in this question, but ultimately we need to encourage ourselves in the Lord, you know? Psalm 27 and you can read the whole of that song, but, it’s so important. It says, “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed I would see the goodness of God and the land of the living.” I would’ve lost heart unless I had believed, in those times where there is a delay between when we say amen and when we see the manifestation. It’s really easy to find ourselves in a place of discouragement. And that, that applies to healing. That applies to actually anything. If you’re believing God for something, and you feel like there is a period of time where there’s, doesn’t seem like there’s a lot of things going on.
I just want to encourage you. You know, you’re going to win if you don’t quit. It’s in Hebrews it says, “by faith and patience, we inherit the promises.” No one really likes the patients part of faith, but you know what? It’s there for a reason. So faith gets us to speak the word of God, but patients holds the word of faith in place until we cross the finish line and see the manifestation. So I want to encourage you Celine, just don’t quit. Just keep speaking the word of God. Watch your, watch your lips. Watch what comes out of your mouth and only speak the word of God, and don’t quit. Encourage yourself in the Lord and he will strengthen your heart. Amen.
Ashley: Amen. That’s awesome praise. Cause you, I read the back of the book, and we win. So as long as we don’t quit, we win, praise God. So stay in there. If you’ve got questions, you can write our ministry. We’d love to hear from you and also testimonies as well. Write in and let us know, testimonies. If these ministries affected you, we’d love to hear about it-
Carlie: Yeah, absolutely.
Ashley: Praise God. So we’re looking at living a life of legacy and how to live a life of legacy. We looked to how it is God’s plan to reach the whole Earth, God’s plan was to reach everybody. For God so loved the whole world that he gave his only begotten son, he did it through Jesus. God the father, reached the whole world through one man, through Jesus. And that was his legacy plan. That was, that was how Jesus live in a legacy.
And he poured into 12 disciples, and those 12 disciples or 11 of them, I should say, one of them didn’t quite make it, at the 11 disciples went out and actually reproduced and actually, reproduced the, the message, the gospel message.
Ashley: And that’s how the legacy was led. That’s how Christian- Christian is alive and kicking now with billions of Christians all around the world, praise God. So we know the importance, we know from the word of God, the importance of living a legacy. We looked at the apostle Paul, and his relationship with Timothy. And we’re going to pick some of these up here now, with different types of mentorships. Just a few points, we’ll make at, first of all, you may be saying Ashley or Carlie we- you don’t understand. There’s no one in my life that I can look up to.
There’s no one, I haven’t got relationships with anyone who I can look up to that I’m on my own here as a Christian. You know, this, our television program goes out around the world, literally. So I know there’s people in different situations and I’m, I’m going to show you. You can be mentored. First of all, let’s, let’s get this out of the way right now. This is obvious, but I’m going to say it. God is who we learn everything from.
Ashley: You know what? The Holy Spirit is, our comforter. He’s our helper. Jesus is our teacher. We, we learn everything from God. The word of God, praise God, Jesus becoming flesh.
Ashley: The word of God, you know, you don’t have to look outside of that. There’s all the answers you ever need in the word of God.
Ashley: But God will use people to clarify some things. God will use people to draw out what’s already inside you. You know, there’s, everything that you need to live a life of godliness has already been deposited on the inside of you. When you got born again, when you gave your life to Jesus, you become wall-to-wall Holy Spirit. Amen. You, 1 John 4:17 says, “as he is,” as Jesus is, “so are you.” Not when you get to heaven, right now in your spirit, you are just like Jesus. In your spirit, you’re just like Jesus. Now you also have a cell and you have a body. And the challenge is renewing our soul. Our mind, will, and emotions to line up to what we have in the spirit. So we already got everything in the spirit and we need to draw that out into our, into our soul, into our thinking and into our will and into our emotions. The way we do that is we will new our mind, the word of God, but God will also use people. He’ll put people in life to draw out those good treasures in our hearts.
Carlie: Right. I think we can believe God for godly examples in our life. Maybe you’ve, maybe like Ashley is saying, you’ve grown up in a home where you didn’t have a godly example. You don’t have, you don’t you feel like, you’re lacking in this area. This can be a faith project for you. You know, we have the Holy Spirit, we have Jesus on the inside of us, but sometimes it’s helpful to have a Jesus with skin on, right.
Carlie: It’s helpful to have somebody that can come alongside you and encourage you. And even to correct you, right?
Carlie: That’s, that’s godly parenting right there, godly spiritual parenting: mentorship. So if you, if you’ve recognized that you have a lack in this area where you believe that you could really benefit from these things, we’re going to go, we’re going to go through the benefits of a godly mentorship. Then believe God, I encourage you. Believe God, pray this prayer today, “God, God bring people into my life to help me open up the scriptures to me. Bring people into my life, to help me in my relationship with you, to help me to bring correction, to help me to, to bring encouragement, to help me to in the area of, of understanding in discipleship.” And God is faithful. He’ll bring those people across your path. Amen.
Ashley: Amen. He really will. And, also the, the neat thing is as well is you could be, you can receive and be mentored if you like, without even having a one-on-one relationship with that person. In fact, the scripture we read today-
Carlie: They don’t have to be your neighbor.
Ashley: They don’t have to be your neighbor. You don’t have to spend a lot of time with them. In fact, I get this question like, well, it must be great you know, you get to travel and, and do things with Andrew Womack or your pastor. You know, our pastor, pastor Lawson Perdue, you get to travel and, and spend time with him. When we’re one-on-one, when I’m one-on-one with Andrew Womack, when I’m one-on-one with pastors, any of my mentors in my life throughout the years when I’m one-on-one with them, it’s not really the time that I’m learning as much on scripture and things like that.
I’m telling you, it’s more, it’s more when I’m listening to them teaching-
Ashley: And through listening to teachings. The first scripture we read today was 2 Timothy 2, and in verse two, it says, “And the things that you have heard from me,” this is Timothy talking to Paul. This is one of the best examples of a mentor mentee relationship. This is Timothy talking to Paul, he says “and the things you have heard from me among many witnesses,” among many witnesses, this is saying- What Tim, what Paul is saying here to Timothy is, the things you’ve heard me teach in my conferences at my church services at- when I was teaching, when I was teaching the masses, when I was there in the town square, when Paul was teaching the Sanhedrin, when Paul was teaching in the temple. When Timothy was there, he was there in these meetings, those are the things that Paul says, now go and teach those things to others.
It wasn’t so much the times when he was one-on-one with him. And that really fascinated me. I was like, you know what? I’ve learned more from sitting at the front of conferences, sit on the front row conferences and receiving. You know, we went to Bible school without our mentors, or like without our instructors. You know, it wasn’t so much that we knew them personally, it was more that we were sat in class, listened to their teachings. And there’s no excuse, nowadays with technology and wherever you’re watching from. If you’re watching this, you’re able to get some good mentoring. You’re able to get some good truths in you from, from programs available on the internet. If you need to go anywhere, you could go to our website. We have podcasts, we have videos, free resources. There is hour- literally hours and hours, if not hundreds of hours of free resources right there on our website. But you can go to other websites. You can, you can find good teaching. You can read books, you can listen to audio books, podcasts, these things-
Carlie: You’re talking about being a good student.
Carlie: Being a good hero [crosstalk] and even taking responsibility for our own hearing. You know, it’s really popular in the world today to have life coaches.
Carlie: And if you’re a life coach, I’m not against you, but we get a lot of requests of people that they want us to, to mentor them, or really what’s coming across is you want someone to hold your hand.
Ashley: Spoonfeed you.
Carlie: Spoonfeed you. And you know, there’s an element here that we’re talking about of taking responsibility for our own learning, of submitting ourselves to godly learning yes, but being good hearers is of it.
Carlie: And that doesn’t mean somebody sits with you and reads the Bible with you every day. Like a bedtime story. That holds your hands through every crisis. This is talking about submitting yourself to godly leadership, but then taking responsibility for listening and owning that information that you’ve learned.
Carlie: And really applying it.
Ashley: And you know, next time when we come back, we’re going to be talking our next lesson, we’re going to be looking at what makes a good mentor and what makes a good mentee. How you can position yourself, and there’s no proverb that says when the student is ready, the instructor will appear. You hear that one?
Carlie: I haven’t heard that one.
Ashley: Never heard that. That’s very, very famous proverb I thought you’d heard that. Anyways. One of these sayings, I don’t know where it’s from. It’s one of these unknown, people claim it as their own, but there’s an unknown-
Carlie: Sounds good.
Ashley: When the student is ready, the instructor will impier- it will impier? Appear. Will appear. And that’s true. When you’re ready to learn, I’m telling you, God will give you everything you need to learn, praise God. And I’m telling you, we were excited because I believe that God is looking for people to live a legacy. God’s looking for people who are, he’s always going to or fro saying, who’s going to show themselves perfect. We’re not looking for people that are that perfection. We look for people that are faithful. He’s looking for people that are willing to live that life of legacy, that willing to learn from people and also to give out to people.
Ashley: And that takes humility, that takes a number of characteristics we can look at, praise God. But we’re so glad you’ve joined us today. And we want to pray for you.
Ashley: We want to make sure that before we leave, we want to pray for you. We want to agree with you. We have lots of people write in and contact our ministry with prayer requests. So right now in Jesus’ name, we want to, we want to bless you. Father, I thank you for everyone watching today. I thank you for everyone watching this program and listening to this program. I thank you- we love them. I thank you, we’ll do good to them. I thank you have only good plans and good things for them in their futures. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
Carlie: Thank you Lord for bringing people across our paths to instruct us to speak into us. Lord, I thank you that you’re faithful to fill the gaps in our life. To fill the gaps where there needs to be discipleship, Lord, I thank you. We come with hearts of humility today and we ask you and we believe you, God, that you’re going to supply every need at every need. Thank you Lord, for bringing godly men and women into our life.
Ashley: Amen. Amen. Thank you Lord that you are not a distant God. I thank you. You’re a God that loves us and wants to indwell us and love to disciple us. And Lord we say right now, wherever you’re listening from or watching from right now, grieve this prayer. Lord, I open myself up to be discipled by you, Lord. Lord, I want to go deep in my relationship with you. Lord I want to know more about you, more about your word, more about your ways. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
Ashley: Praise God. Isn’t God good? He’s so good. And we’re so glad you joined us today. We’ll be right back to talk more on this subject, praise God. But until then, remember, don’t just settle for living a normal life, when paid for you to live the abundant life. We will see you next time.

Ashley: Hey, so glad you’re with us today. If you’ve received anything spiritual today, if you’ve received anything, praise God, then I want to encourage you to sow. When I’ve received, praise God, I love to sow. In 1 Corinthians 9:11 Paul says is if you’ve received spiritual things, then the right thing to do is sow materially. And I know people are watching from all around the world, but I believe God gives seed to the sower. And I believe you’ve received anything spiritual for these programs then I believe God would want you to sow materially. Because as you do that, praise God, you’re confirming what you’ve learned in your heart. So go ahead with the instructions on the screen, we’d love for you to sow into good ground today.
