I choose this title because of all of the recent events that have taken place within the last few weeks. We experienced the lost of several high profile stars if you will and most notably Michael Jackson and Steve McNair.
There were many others but I choose these two names because of their impact on today's youth and society as a whole. I would first like to extend my condolences to the families of these two individuals. So much has been said about what they did or didn't do and the impact of their deaths have created a riff in our society.
I can't help but wonder where they were with Christ? So much talk and conversation has been extended as to where or how they died and to what extend or circumstances took place surrounding it. I keep looking and listening to some of the commentaries hoping to catch one glimpse of their relationship with the king of Glory?
It saddens me to think that all of their doings were in vain when it comes to the kingdom. Just hearing about all the people they impacted one of them internationally, yet they never confessed God or used their influence to bring others to Christ. What a pity and a waste of influence, gifts and talents. Lets face it the "reality" of it all is that we are not our own. God purchased us and redeemed us and we are indebted to him.
I am not trying to past judgement on either of them I just want us to be aware of what we have to do. Giving yourself back to Christ in service is something that we all can do. Start looking around in your neighborhood and families and communities for people in need. If you can do something, have something or organize something to meet their need why not do it?
The least you do until others, you will do until God. Imagine the impact you can make, the need you can meet and the smile on your brother or sister's face. Don't wait too late the reality is time does not wait! Do the good you know how to do today. Someone is waiting and needs you!
Thank you for giving to those in need,
