Live Forever on Earth; Talking Heart2Heart

A Servant's Heart Lives Forever....

A Servant’s Heart Lives Forever….

The father of one of our friends passed away, and my husband and I attended his funeral. I have been to several funerals, but this one was different. This experience inspired me to live a better life, one that gives to others even the more. I didn’t know his father, but after hearing such good things about him I wish I had met such a man.

This Home-Going service celebrated the life of (Mr. James), as I sat there the book of his life started to unfold right before my eyes. The people stood from wall to wall to show their respects to a (pillar) of the community. This was truly a Godly MAN who knew the GOD MAN. (Mr. James) will live forever in eternity, but he will live forever on earth as well. He was an example of who God commands us all to become in our Christian walk. We are commanded to love thy neighbor, do unto others, to give, to forgive, so the bottom line is to serve others. John 12:26 “If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.”

As the service progressed, it was obvious this man was a Giant. He was a Godly MAN who loved God, his family, his church, and the community. The Minister offered the floor to any who wished to share their history with Mr. James. Many came forth with remarks, and they spoke highly of him. They shared how he touched their lives, and what he meant to them. The stories went on and on as I sat on the edge of the pew waiting for more. The stories  somehow came to life in a way that I became a part of the story as if I was there. I could actually picture the stories taking place. I know, weird but not really because it was that real to me.

He gave of himself for the good of others. Romans 12:1 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Mr. James) left such an impression on those he touched by the way he loved, treated, talked, and cared about them when others walked away.

There were people popping up one after the other to have remarks about (Mr. James), and the relationship each of them shared with him. The bible says, to leave an inheritance for your children’s children. Proverbs 13:22 “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.” Mr. James went beyond the call of duty, and he left an inheritance to all he touched. Have you ever heard the term, “you may be the only Jesus many might ever see?” Well, I truly believe that he represented Jesus in the flesh being moved by compassion and yielding to the will of our Heavenly Father.

(Mr. James) completed his last race, and he entered into his eternal rest. 2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” He has passed the baton to all who were inspired, encouraged, blessed, and cheered on by the Godly Spirit he possessed. He has given you the training tools to continue the work of the Lord. He will live forever on earth through you as you take the baton and the message on this God-given mission. Will you take the baton?

Even though I didn’t know (Mr. James), I was truly inspired by his life. Philippians 1:6 “Thank God for He is able to complete the work that He has begun in you.” I am thankful that I was able to witness this celebration of a “Man of Honor.” He was the center of attention on that day, as he paraded before family and friends for the last time on this side. He didn’t receive the purple heart, but he got a NEW HEART not made by man.

We can all learn from the God example of a man (Mr. James) was as he worked as unto the Lord. A servants’ heart will live forever on earth through the testimony of those who were served and blessed by the SERVANT. I hope this has inspired you to strive daily to be more of the SERVANT God has called us to be.

    The key for virtually any protest movement would be to inspire and motivate
    people to go from your comfort of their homes on
    the chaos with the streets and face off up against the government.
    It is definitely important to remember in case you choose to post less frequently be sure you compensate the future prospect
    with high quality information.
