Live to Die Without Regrets
This past weekend, I read about the passing to glory of a young Christian worship leader, affiliated to a youth ministry I’ve had to privilege to partner with in the last couple of years. He was very young (probably early 20s) and seemed much loved by his friends.
Tributes to a Young Christian Soldier
The tributes I’ve read about him reminded me of a question I recently asked students at the Success Masterclass Program: “What will people say about you when you die?”
Here are some of the tributes on his Facebook Page:
“It’s too hard to believe but I thank God for your life. Though too short but well spent … I know you’re in the right hand of God quietly worshiping Him” “We will be celebrating a legend in Christ” “We will all meet and hug again in heaven. I will miss hugging you. I will miss your annointed voice. I already miss you but I rejoice because we will see again in joy and splendour.”
I didn’t know him personally, but the stories his friends share make me feel a personal connection with their loss. In a sense, being affiliated to the ministry, it’s somewhat a personal loss.
Death is a reality we shouldn’t fear
Death is a reality we must face someday if Christ tarries and one Christians don’t have to be afraid of. Life is a vapour; a mist that soon disappears and is no more. This truth is hugely significant to how we ought to live.
The young worshipper inspired his generation with his passion for God. He’s being celebrated (not mourned) for infusing others with a desire to worship God.
How will you be remembered when you die?
Live to die without regrets
Life is not a game or reality TV show. Actually, the one reality we are guaranteed is this: we only have one life to live.
There’s no better time to live than now; no better time to serve God, no better time to be committed to the gospel, no better time to touch lives for good, no better time to stand for truth.
You only have NOW! Make it count. Share this
You will be remembered for what you did, not what you thought. So live to die without regrets.
