how will they remember you?
so we are given two examples today of what people "do" and how they will be remembered.
when some well meaning Pharisees tell Jesus to leave town because Herod wants to kill Him, He says "I've still got some work to do... I'll be casting out demons and healing people for another two days before the time comes for me to die."
pretty amazing. He'll be making people's lives better for another two days, before He saves all of mankind. even if He hadn't defeated death and saved us from our sins, His life was one that we can look at and think "that's how a hero lives."
and then we think back to the OT reading. Rahab was a prostitute. not exactly what we would want to be remembered by. but we remember her for her faith. she is in the Bible because she believed what God was doing in the lives of the children of Israel.... even when they didn't seem to believe it much themselves.
what will you be remembered for?
God, please help me work for your Kingdom, so that when people remember me, they'll see the work that You've done in my life.
