What Will You Be Remembered For?

‘Those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.’ Daniel 12:3 NLT

Dr James Kennedy wrote: ‘Consider the great pyramid of Giza, one of the world’s most massive structures. Someone built it as a memorial to himself… King Khufu, not exactly a household name! The Shah of India built the Taj Mahal as a tribute to his wife, yet he too built in vain; after all, who knows the name Arjumand? And how about the Great Wall of China? Astronauts can see it from space, yet no one remembers Qin Shihuang, who was initially responsible for the largest manmade structure in the world. While these people are all forgotten, you can make a permanent imprint on the world. How? By leading others to Christ!’

The Bible says, ‘Those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.

Louis Pasteur, the pioneer of immunology, lived at a time when thousands of people died every year from rabies. He had worked for years on a vaccine, and just as he was about to experiment on himself, a nine-year-old boy named Joseph Meister was bitten by a rabid dog. The boy’s mother begged him to try the vaccine on her son. So Pasteur injected him for ten days—and he lived. Decades later, out of all the epitaphs Pasteur could have chosen, he asked for three words to be etched on his tombstone: JOSEPH MEISTER LIVED!

Your greatest legacy can be those who live eternally because you shared Christ with them. Jesus said, ‘The words… I speak to you are spirit, and… life.’ (John 6:63 NKJV) What moves hearts? What changes lives? The words of Jesus!

The Power and Pitfalls of Church Small Groups – Dr Allan Meyer

“One of the things we observed was when a home group went bad, if a leader became disaffected and got a little poisonous, you would lose every person in that group,” Allan recalled. But according to Dr Allan Meyer, there’s never been a better time than to do small groups right now. “The tools available …Read More
