What have you been called to do? What problem has God gifted and purposed you to solve? For you see, it is okay to celebrate the life and legacy of people who have marched along with God’s destined drumbeat for their lives. These are our witnesses and examples as we do life. Nevertheless, we do not get a pass for just celebrating and hiding behind the personal sacrifices others have made to God. Your rendition of their writings, marches, speeches, honors, and sacrifices can never authenticate their contribution again in life! God has already stamped their contribution approved! That was their moment and time with God! So, the question is, what price are you willing to pay to do God’s will? What will your moment with God be? Those we honor and celebrate have already done what God called them to do! Remember, God specifically designed a rhythm and purpose for you! What will you do with your now time with Him?
