Living for God’s Glory

“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom” (Psalm 90:12 NLT).

Where are you in your life today? Are you in the morning of your life? Are you in the afternoon of your life? Or, are you in the evening of your life?

Of course, I know I’m getting toward the end of my race in life. I don’t know how many more years I will live or how many more years of ministry I will have. But I do know that I’m not in the beginning of it.

Those who are young will say, “I’m in the morning of my life.”

But you never know when the Lord will call you home. My son Christopher was only 33 years old when he was unexpectedly called home to Heaven. So we don’t necessarily know where we are in the race of life.

That’s why we want to be ready to meet God. We need to realize that Jesus died on the cross for us, and we need to turn from our sins and ask Him to come into our lives. Then we will find the meaning and purpose of life that we’ve been seeking. Not only that, but we will have hope for the afterlife.

So what kind of difference is your life making? What kind of legacy are you leaving?

My prayer is that you will live a life that is worth emulating. Corrie ten Boom was a very godly woman who suffered horrible things during the Holocaust, including imprisonment at the Ravensbruck concentration camp, and she lived to tell the story. She made this statement: “The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.”

We think that success is a long life. Well, maybe success is a long life—if it is lived for the glory of God. But even if it’s a short life, if it’s lived for God’s glory, that is still a success. It is not the duration but the donation.
