What If You Die Today?
Sometimes blunt, crude words are the only things that can shock a person out of a rut and motivate him to improve to the next level. This article is for the church worker who needs such forthright words.
What if you die today? Would you be pleased with your legacy?
If the answer is “no,” then you need to figure out how to change it. Life is short. Some of us need to increase our tempo. Some need to act instead of waiting for tomorrow. Some need training. Some of us are doing everything right, but we need time to achieve it. You need to take care of your body by eating right and working out so that you will have that time. Do not forget that we are called to be doers of the word and not merely hearers.
James 1:22-25 (ESV)
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
Is there anything distracting you from pursuing your purpose?
Is anything slowing you down?
At the same time, some of us need to be patient, wait for God’s timing, and not ruin things by forcing it on our own. You know the answers to these questions.
