You Will Easily Be Forgotten



from Jared Wilson

. . . an old preacher [who] told a group of younger preachers to remember that they would die. “They are going to put you in a box,” he said, “and put the box in the ground, and throw dirt on your face, and then go back to the church and eat potato salad.” 

Here’s the point: As great as you can make yourself, as many wonderful things as you can accomplish in your lifetime — even religious things — it will all be a blip on the radar of eternity. You will become dust. The worms will eat you. Statistically speaking, since most of us will never accomplish such great things that history will laud throughout the ages, memory of us will start fading with our grandchildren. Our great grandchildren will (likely) not have any clue who we are. 

But! 

If you are bringing glory to Christ, not a thing about you is wasted, because the mission of the Spirit of God is to maximize the glory of Christ over all the universe. So that even at the end of days, as Revelation shows us, all the glorious kings of the nations in all their renown and splendor, file in one by one into the holy city to throw their crowns at the feet of Jesus. Revelation 21 reveals that the light of the new heavens and new earth comes not from the “sun” but from the “Son,” and the kings of the nations will bring their glory into it. 

There is the vision of greatness the redeemed of the Lord ought to aspire to. That he would increase and we would decrease. That our decrease would serve his increase! 

And those who are willing to lose their lives — whatever that might mean — for Christ’s sake, will find them. 

And from dust you will return.

Surrounding yourself with co-laborers is key. Another great idea is the embrace the word "no" i have to remained focus on what I am called to do. And finally I learning that I really have zero capability to do any of it. I need to desperately depend on the work of Christ.

agreed...it is humility that says, I can't do it all...I need others

I know this will sound like Doc has written this himself, but I am a real person and I have nothing to gain from writing a glowing recommendation.But I do give Doc a glowing recommendation because I have used his services and, having spent the last couple of years trying to work through a complicated and long-founded situation, with someone very close to me attempting to control me for nearly 2 decades – most others had failed,where Doc succeeded.Doc’s readings were stunningly accurate and he pulled no punches (where others were afraid to intervene too specifically.This gave me the foundation I needed to plot the best way forward (for the good of all involved)before I came across him, none of the help I received,seemed to last more than a few days,as this was an `inside job’ being replenished every single night and in the very food I ate!I am still not through this but Doc’s help has taken me further forward than anyone else,to the point where I can see light at the end of the tunnel.If you’re in doubt as to whether he is the real thing (and I would say that 99% of the rest out there are either fakes or simply not as good as they think they are), Doc is the real thing and I can testify that he is effective.He has worked effectively for me in a far from average case.Plus he does follow up when you need him after.Very impressive & rare.If in doubt,try him out.He is the real deal.”asikushrine@mail.com
