Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Living For God

 

We use the term Living for God all the time.

Have you ever stopped and thought about that?

Do you live for God? You won’t have another chance later on. You will never be able to relive your past. Some day when you’re old and looking back… you’ll never be able to live your teen years again. How much time are you wasting in bitterness? In selfishness? In resentment? In hate? In boring, lifeless, self-indulgence?

Do you live for God by living for others? Are you investing your life in things that will matter? Or are you wasting your time.

Mrs. Anasarias passed away on Friday night, but she was a lady who lived for God. Her life was about serving God and others, and right up to the end, her testimony was that she lived for God. My wife, Pastor and I were able to be with the final moments with the family, and her hospital room was filled with coworkers and family. Everyone nodded in agreement when Pastor made the statement that she lived for God.

Whether you know it or not, people will know you by how you live. Sometimes you reflect a little deeper on your own life when it is threatened, or when a precious loved one is lost. Think about your life… how will you be remembered? As someone who was faithful? As someone who lived for God?

We are grieving with the Anasarias family in their loss. No doubt. But it was amazing to see that in the middle of all that grief, the family was able to be a beacon of hope to everyone in the room by affirming their confidence in Mrs. Eileen’s home in heaven. There was no doubt. There was no hoping. They didn’t have to light a candle or pray really hard that she would go to heaven. They knew without doubt that they will see mom again. It is difficult, confusing and painful to lose a loved one, but God’s light is brightest when it’s the darkest time of night.
