The World Can’t Forget

The World Can’t Forget by myles munroe
July 14

Every human being was created to accomplish something specific that no one else can accomplish.

 

It is crucial for you to understand this truth:
You were designed to be known for something special.
You are meant to do something that will make you unforgettable.
You were born to do something that the world will not be able to ignore.
It may be in your church, your community, your state, or beyond.

 

The Bible is a great book for recording the stories of people who did little things that the world can’t forget. One example is Rahab, the prostitute, who risked her life for people she didn’t even know. She was born to hide Joshua’s spies so that the Israelites could defeat Jericho. (See Joshua 2, 6.) Everyone who reads the Old Testament knows about her act of courage.

 

In the New Testament, there is the story of the woman who took an alabaster jar of perfume and anointed Jesus’ head with it. This woman was taking a chance by violating the accepted social code of the day and interrupting a group of men who had gathered for a meal. She decided to pour out her life in gratitude to Jesus, no matter what the consequences. Some of those present severely criticized her because she had “wasted” costly perfume on Jesus when it could have been sold for charitable purposes. Yet Jesus said to them, “Leave her alone….I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her” (Mark 14:6, 9). No matter how small the act may be, if you put your whole life into it, it won’t be forgotten.

 

Prayer:
Father, I am encouraged that as I serve You, I will accomplish things that will not be forgotten. My desire is to put my whole life into service for You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

 

Thought: You were designed to be known for something special.

Reading: Psalm 10–12; Acts 19:1–20
