Are You Living A Godly Life?

Today I attended my boyfriend’s mother’s funeral.  The services took place in a funeral home with a presiding minister who didn’t know the deceased.  Nowhere in the obituary did it mention that the deceased was “saved,” accepted the Lord as her Savior, or that she was ever a member of a church.  She did many things in the community and was a kindhearted person.  Nowhere in the eulogy did the minister mention the name of the person being eulogized.

For me, as a Christian, the services saddened my heart.  When my time comes to depart and leave this earth, I want it to be said that I had accepted the Lord as my Savior and tried to live a life where I was a blessing to others and tried to bring others closer to Him through my actions, deeds, and outreach.  I want my pastor, family, and friends to say that I went the Last Mile to help others and that I tried to live a Godly life.  I want the minister to tie my kindheartedness into Godly blessings.  People, prepare now for your homegoing.  It doesn’t matter how nice you are.  Are you living a Godly life and trying to bring others closer to Him?  That is the question!
