Top 7 Things I want Said at my Funeral.
The fact there are two sure things in life: death and taxes. So here are 10 things I'd like said at my funeral.
I. Gerrard wasn't perfect, just loved a perfect Savior.
II. Gerrard loved his family.
III. Gerrard loved the church, and the church loved him.
IV. Gerrard loved the church because Jesus loved the church.
V. Canadian, husband, father, but most importantly a Christian.
VI. His obituary maybe short but his Church Family comes from a long line of faithful followers.
VII. Romans 12:1-2 cited from the Message.
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
What would you want said at your funeral?
Ultimately I want people to say He was a man after God's own heart who pointed people to Jesus and not himself.
