And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. (Matt. 10:38-39)
It is easy, as a Christian, to focus too much on the wrong things. When this occurs, the born again person “Majors on the minors in life.” The Spirit of God began to speak to me about this subject as I was preparing to preach my younger sister’s funeral. The minor things are things pertaining to natural everyday life and this physical world system. While standing there preaching the funeral, the Lord revealed to me what my main job as a minister was. He said, “Your main goal, as a minister, is to get people ready to die. Many only focus on getting people ready to live in the natural world.” When a person comes to the end of their life, nothing is more important than being a born again Christian. Natural things suddenly lose their appeal, and are very lightly esteemed. Money, houses, cars, lands, possessions, making a fashion statement, and earthly memories cannot help them. The most important memory you can leave with your loved ones is the knowledge of who Jesus Christ is.
