KEY VERSE: “And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do (Acts 9:6).”
It is not how long you live, but the impact you make on the world while you abide here. You are only remembered by what you have done! Martin Luther King Jr. said, “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, let him sweep the streets as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep, so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say here lived a great sweeper who did his job well.” As a believer God expects you to work hard while still alive in order to leave a legacy behind for upcoming generations. Some missionary workers laid down their lives for the gospel to get to you.
You too owe posterity a huge debt which can only be paid by your commitment to the gospel work. Paul, the apostle, was using his gifts and talents wrongly until he met Christ. He cried out, “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” You can turn to God today to know what you need to do for Him.
Challenge: Ask God what you need do with your life.
Prayer: Oh God, make me a channel of blessing, in Jesus’name
Quote: You too owe posterity a huge debt.
