LIVE, LEAD & DIE

 

For our date night, Jenn and I watched “From Paris With Love”.  It was not your typical chick flick love story to say the least.  I don’t think she enjoyed the movie.  (But I did… haha)

One of the main characters turned out to be a suicide bomber (sorry to ruin the plot for those of you planning to see it).  She said she has found her purpose in life.

While not most of us will not agree with her found purpose in life, I dare say, at least she found one.

Too many simply exist.  They walk through life without purpose.  They live like everything’s just about them.  Wake up… Go to work/or school… come home… surf on the Net… have some bit of fun… sleep and the same rut happens again the next day.

Reading from the book of Judges, 2 names popped out – Tola and Jair.  The Bible says that they were born, they lived, they led and they died.  That’s it.  While I’m sure they did more than just live, lead and die, the Bible didn’t think it was enough to make it into the book of Judges.

Got me thinking.  Got me praying.

“Lord, I don’t want to just live, lead and then die.  I want to make a difference.  I want to make a dent in this nation’s history – not by my strength or abilities (knowing that I really don’t have lots) but by Your grace and power!”
