To Be Remembered is To Live On!

Recently, I was going for a walk and I saw this phrase on a commemoration bench for a person that had passed away. To Be Remembered is to Live On. At first glance, I didn’t think too much about it and then I realized…wow…how sad that is. That is the only thing I know about that person or family, but if that is their hope…it isn’t hope! It reminded me of what hope really is!

 

I think we are all honored when someone says an encouraging word to us that they were thinking of us or even praying for us. It is pretty special to be remembered. But is that all there is? We live and we die and we are remembered. The End. HOW SAD! Now, don’t get me wrong, I would love it if people would remember me – that is if I truly have a good legacy. If we don’t leave a good legacy, then I would rather people not remember my embarrassment and disgrace.

 

Again, I don’t know the person who wrote this quote, so I don’t know the spiritual condition, but the statement itself is one of naturalistic materialism that is grasping for some meaning and purpose, which ultimately will completely lose its meaning and purpose as the memories of you fade as those who lived with you die and cease to exist.

 

To contrast this, “To Live On” is our joy and treat from God because of the work of His son, Jesus, in paying the price for our sins. We will not die and completely cease to exist. If we believe in Jesus, we will be blessed to live with Him forever, forever learning, forever rejoicing, forever living on without temptation, without pain, without suffering, and without death.

 

To Believe in Jesus is to Live On! (John 3:16)
