I Kings 2:2 I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man;
I am more reminded of this truth every day. I will, like all before me, leave this earth. I want to have left a legacy of loving Jesus. I want to have left an example for my family. I want those that I have pastored to know that they have watched a man, a regular man, no one special, that could do nothing special, but who loved Jesus the best way that he could.
I want people that know me to know that I am just a man. I have failed many times but I do love Jesus. I want to make a difference with my life.
When I leave I want to challenge my children, my friends, my sons in the ministry to stand strong, to show themselves a man for Him and His causes. I want to have a lived a life that challenges them to not be satisfied with anything less.
Let’s live out who we are. Let’s show our faith. Our be level, our identity in Christ, will show itself in our actions. We will fail but we will get back up again.
Let’s live lives that count!
