I have never met a single person who didn’t want to be remembered. There is this part of us that, as we age, realizes that life is short and a lot of what we do falls into the past without even a ripple on the surface. This bothers us because we were made to live forever. As many times as atheists and agnostics say, “When your candle goes out – POOF! that’s it!” – our hearts say, “I don’t believe that for a second!” Of course, that raises a question; if we actually believe that life here could be compared to a dot on a rope that starts here and extends to the farthest parts of the universe and beyond – why do we treat the “dot” as if it’s all we have? See, the truth is that not only do we live forever- – very person with whom we lock eyes – and even those we don’t see – live forever, too. With knowing the truth that Jesus taught us about life, about finding life, about giving life – and about life forever – comes a responsibility. The responsibility we have is to pass on Jesus’ invitation to live forever.
