I was really challenged this morning as I listened to some wonderful teaching from a man called Greg Mohr.
He said, “Live in such a way that the preacher does not have to lie at your funeral”.
Oh boy, though got me thinking!
I have been at many funerals when I thought the person sounded perfect but I knew that they were not.
I want the preacher to be truly honest at my funeral, so I need to live my life so that this happens.
I recognised (from listen to Greg) that in order for this to happen I need to be a man of character.
So how does this come about, well it is not something you can try and do or will yourself to be.
My testimony is that as my understanding of the Word increased my character has improved.
And this is what the Word says; we are transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12 v 2).
I think our character is a reflection of our true nature as it is allowed to influence our mind.
And this is done through mind renewal!
Are you interested in what the preacher may say about you at your funeral?
Are you interested in the legacy that you will leave behind?
If like me you are very interested in this I suggest you get into the Word and increase the rate of mind renewal; that is what I intend to do!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that it is the agent for change in my life”.
Proverbs 22 v 1…..A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold
