Lecrae is Asked What He’d Want His Legacy to be
Lecrae was a guest on Community During Chaos and one of the final questions he was asked was, “What would you want your legacy to be?” and “After God says, ‘Well done my good and faithful servant’ what would you want the next line to be?”
“I had a moment a couple of years ago where I just broke down…looking through scriptures after Peter had denied Jesus and then went back to fishing and he was cooking. Jesus came to him and said, ‘feed my sheep’.”
He continued, “That’s what I want to know. Obviously, it’s well done [good and faithful servant], but I want to know Lord that I was a good steward. You can’t do it perfectly. There’s so much going on right now. There’s so much happening.”
“Just being an American, you’re at a disadvantage when it comes to reading the scriptures,” said Lecrae, before clarifying. “The reason why I say that is because we have a western perspective. We think that just because we know something, we’re living it. The eastern mindset is to be about it is to live it and not to know it.”
Lecrae said he doesn’t want to just “know information.” He really wants to “live that life.”
He then spoke about how in Biblical times before Jesus, to be Jewish was also to know God. It was one and the same. Once Jesus came and sent out his disciples, Paul was preaching on everyone having access to God.
The rapper and entrepreneur wants to remembered like that – a person who gave everyone access to the Savior.
“I want to hear God say, ‘he was really about that life’.”
