Which epitaph will better describe your life? (Substitute she for he, as needed.)
He did the best he could with what he had …. [Subtitle: But, he was still a slave to sin.]
Or will it be
VICTORY IN JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [Sung at the top of your lungs in His conquering parade!]
One’s all about you, the other is all about Him.
law vs grace;
being overcome by sin vs overcoming sin by Him;
bored existence vs excited adventure;
your resources vs His resources;
your lack vs His overflow;
what you know vs Whom you know;
you have the ultimate responsibility to make life successful [you are God] vs the ultimate responsibility is His [He Is God!];
distracted by life vs contented gaze at Him;
my trying to compensate for life’s losses vs His restoring the years of the locust.
He is all. Will you let Him be your all, so that His VICTORY is assured?
