🎵 Who lives, who dies, who tells your story? 🎵
What will people remember you as?
Whenever I think about Bible Bee, I will never forget what happened last year. In real time, I followed, on the private social community, what ended up being the last days of a fellow contestant. I didn’t know him personally, but had heard about him quite often.
The main thing that people always say about him is how vibrant his love for the Lord was. He had a passion for hiding God’s Word in his heart and was always encouraging others. Wherever he went, he let his light shine.
What a way to be remembered.
Ever since his death, I tend to think about him quite often and the legacy that he left. All I think about is how I’m living my life.
Am I living it to the fullest for Christ?
Am I serving others with a servant’s heart?
Can others see the Lord in me and through my life?
Every day, I feel like I don’t do those things often or really at all. It’s true, I don’t always reflect Christ through my actions, speech, and just reactions, especially around my family.
I don’t want to be one way with my friends, and another with my family, but instead, focus on reflecting and showing Christ whoever is around me.
I want to be remembered as an encourager.
I want to be remembered as a follower of Christ.
I want to be remembered as a joyful person amidst trials.
I want to be remembered as a reflection of my Savior.
Romans 14:8 says,
“For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.”
Living for Christ in a sinful world is challenging because there will always be something that tugs us away from Him. But the things of this world will never fade until Christ returns, so we must not grow weary in doing good. We must strive to live set apart for Him because we are now the Lord’s as we are a new creation and live our lives for Him.
Heart check: Will people remember you as a person of Christ or the world?
To God be the glory,
