Well Done!

“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ ” - (Matthew 25:21)

Jonathan Edwards is best known for his sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” and his role in one of the great spiritual awakenings in the United States. He also was the third president of Princeton University.

But Edwards left an amazing legacy in other ways as well. He served the Lord to the best of his ability and made sure that his family was in church every Sunday. Of his descendants, 430 were ministers, 86 were university professors, 13 were university presidents, 75 authored books, seven were elected to Congress, and one became vice president of the United States.

If you’re a parent, you will make choices that affect your children. Then your children will make choices that affect your grandchildren. This goes on and on, and the circle gets wider and wider. What you do will affect other people. The decisions you make will have an impact on others.

Some may say, “This is my life, and I make my choices.” But it is bigger than that. Our choices on Earth are binding in eternity.

I want to be able to say to the Lord one day that I did the best I could with the life, time, and resources that He gave me. I want the Lord to say to me, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord.”

Don’t you want to hear that?

You might be thinking, I’ve already made a bunch of mistakes. I’ve messed up a lot.

It is not too late to change. Start making good decisions from now on. Do what you can to right the wrongs that you’ve committed over the years. And then, from this day forward, determine to walk with God and start living the way He wants you to live.

Unbroken: Legacy of Faith DVD

Quite possibly the most remarkable testimony I’ve encountered, Louie Zamperini’s life story is one of adventure, suspense, perseverance, and faith. From juvenile delinquent to Olympic runner, to patriot, to prisoner, to postwar survivor bent on revenge, every phase of Louie’s life was being used by God to bring him to a place of surrender. Louie’s astounding life points us to an amazing God.” —Greg Laurie
