We are a group of Christians that regularly meet together for the purpose of worshiping God. We are not a denomination and we have no creed but that which is contained in the New Testament. Since the Bible is our only guide, we speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where the Bible is silent.
Epitaphs on tombstones can often be amusing, and very revealing. This epitaph is said to be written on one in Albany, New York: "Harry Edsel Smith, Born 1903 - Died 1942. Looked up the elevator shaft to see if the car was on the way down. It was."
How sad to come to the end of your life and no one can think of anything good to say about you. In Hebrews 11 we have what many people call the Bible's "Faith Hall of Fame." We find that it could well serve as the epitaphs of those mentioned there. Every single person in the Bible we regard as "great" was a man or woman of faith. That faith made a difference in the way they lived and responded to God; that's why we remember them.
May your life be characterized by faith in God so that those who prepare your tombstone won't struggle with finding something good to say.
