Today we commemorated a couple in our church who have been church leaders for thirty years. It is a beautiful legacy, and makes me think about what impression I am leaving for the people around me. They are far down the path Paul laid out for young pastors in 1 Timothy. I wonder what advice they would have for us today. Two things I heard:

  • be thankful
  • the name of Jesus is powerful – share it!

God, thank You for those who are closer to the end of the race, and the legacy they have left. It is beautiful what You are doing in the world, and in me. Please help me to pursue a long-term relationship like that. To you be the glory! Amen.
