Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Pass It On
The Empowered Life of Roots and Wings: Leaving a Profound Legacy (3 John 1-6)
A tombstone often displays a small hyphen between the dates reflecting the deceased person’s date of birth and their date of death. That “dash” may be small, yet it has profound significance, for it represents the entirety of the deceased person’s life. The “dash” of your and my life may not mean much to someone unacquainted with you, however, to those around you, it exemplifies everything about you in their own minds and hearts. John says in Vs.6 “Please send them on their way in a manner that honours God.” While it speaks here in regard to practical assistance, a challenge to each of us could also be one of spiritual discipleship in regard to those following us or looking up to us.
