What's In Your Obituary?
What's in your obituary? Or perhaps I should say, "What is not in your obituary?" For things important to the world are often insignificant in God's sight. Through Paul's admonition of Romans 8:3-8 regarding spiritual gifts, we learn that the first mark of presenting ourselves to God as a living sacrifice (vs 1-2) is that of committing ourselves to one another in the body of Christ. Our life together calls for a proper view of ourselves so that we may faithfully utilize our God-given gifts for the well-being of the one body. In these words, we find direction for a well-lived life that brings honor to God.
