Make it Count

Happy new month! Yup. May is here. Five months into 2017 already. I hope you’re enjoying the holiday today. 🙂

I’ve had this post in my head for almost two weeks now, but I’m convinced it’s time to finally share it. I hope it blesses you. 

*****************

Years ago, a very interesting sermon was preached at the Teen Church I attended, Jesus Cadet by Seun Aina. I never forgot it. She began by asking everyone one present to write the epitaph we want on our gravestones. It set all of us thinking. That till date for me has to be one of the oddest ways to begin a sermon.

No one prays to die but it’s the inevitable end for each person. We can’t stay on Earth forever. My poser for you (and even me) today is this – If you by some stroke of luck got to know the day you will leave this world, would you continue to live your life the same way?

For me, a life of fulfilment is one that honours God and blesses people! What testimony do people have of you? Is your presence or impact felt at work, school, in your community?

Are you making the most of your present circumstances? Are you giving expression to the talents, gifts and abilities God put within you?

I’ve lived with this consciousness for a few years, call it a mantra if you will – No matter how short my stay might be wherever I go, my absence must be felt

As much as it’s important to leave a legacy on Earth, the most important thing is living in the light of eternity. If you haven’t, it’s not too late to get it right with our Heavenly Father. He’s waiting for you with arms open wide.

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
Mark 8:36

It’s just one life. Make it count!
