When All is Said and Done
February 21, 2021
Dr. Don Wilton
As we go through life, some things become less important and meaningless to us. Other things come to the forefront and we realize their significance to our lives and we come to appreciate them more. As we look back over our journey of life, what legacy will we leave when all is said and done.
Dr. Wilton shares 8 essentials for life and he invites us to trust Jesus, acknowledge Him and depend on Him totally in every aspect of our lives. Sometimes this is very hard to do in our society since His ways are not our ways. Our relationship with others is a vital need and God puts many people in our pathways that will bless Him and us. Although these are important, the most important need in our lives is our relationship with Jesus Christ.
As you listen to the message and take a look at your life, what is important when all is said and done? God has a purpose for our lives and He invites us to accept this purpose and engage in His plan. He invites us to come to Him “Just as I am” with all our mistakes, struggles, successes, addictions and blessings. How wonderful to know that He will accept us just as we are.
