It has been a bitter-sweet week, we buried a friend of ours Ephantus Mwatha on Tuesday. And it really got us to thinking about life, death and making the best of what we have here. I remember this now more than ever and it makes a lot sense now:

‘Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.’ {Steve Jobs}

That has been in my mind all week. Remembering that someday I will be dead, is a real sobering thought, not only to make the most of the life that I live, but also to start thinking about what happens after I die. And it really moved me, to start being my best in all that I do. To spend little time fighting issues, and people and spend more time loving others and giving in whatever way I can.

The most important thing I have encountered in my experience here on earth is God. The single most important influence in my life is God. And it is through my God encounter, that I realise that I do not have to fear death, or even better what awaits me after I die. For I know, that a better life awaits me after this one is done, a crown, a reward, a home of my final rest. The only thing that scares me more than anything else, is living and dying not knowing or serving God. And thus it has become my life mission and statement: to live for God, love Him, serve Him and do as much as I can do to tell everyone I possibly can about Him.

Stay blessed friends, Keep Christ 1st in all that you do!
