Singles Blog: “If I Died Tonight…” by Lynda Liverpool
Pastor Tony Hart always asks, “If Montco Bible Fellowship were to leave Lansdale would we be missed?” And recently I began to think, if I were to die tonight could it honestly be said of me that I lived for Christ? What impact is my life making for the Kingdom? Could someone truly say they know Jesus or more about Him because they interacted with me? I don’t know but I do know what I would like said of me.
I need to take a hard look at exactly what my life is saying and what I need to do to make sure it is a reflection of Jesus. What are my values? What do I stand for? What will I accept or not accept? How am I sharing Christ’s love with those around me? How and when am I sharing the Gospel? And as a single person, I may not have the traditional husband or children to find my calling through, so how can God use me for the Kingdom?
Even if we have answered these questions before, It’s always a good idea to periodically reevaluate and do a self-analysis. This is what was written of King David , arguably the greatest king of Israel and a man after God’s own heart, “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers,…”(Acts 13:36) . Could it be said of me that I served my generation well? Can it be said of you?
Does my life or does your life reflect Christ?” How so or why not?
Additional Personal Questions for self reflection:
1) In what ways is your life advancing or building up the Kingdom of God?
2) a) Has the Lord put a calling or something on your heart that you may have been avoiding or haven’t gotten to yet? b) If so, what’s stopping you?
3) If the Lord has already “called” you to something are you still effective? Could there be a new thing He may want to do in or through you?
