“By faith Abel offered unto God”
“By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.”
There have been many who have gone before us in this life and not left anything behind to speak of. There are those who have left behind great riches, but they do not often abide. Riches can be lost in one foolish moment and never again regained. Only that which is done for God is going to last. Abel lived for God and his testimony was that “he was righteous”. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live our lives in such a way that no matter what happens in the future, others can look at the path we followed and see it clearly marked for the Glory of God that they may follow also? Men live and die. But their testimony lives on forever. How many men have you known who have gone on? What stands out about them in your mind? I dare say that you remember what they did, and what they were, more than what they had. Let’s be mindful of that fact, and live right before a lost world. One day we will be gone as Abel is, and our lives will continue to speak of us when we are gone. And we, being dead, shall yet speak, even after our bones have returned to the dust from whence they came.
