I so far watched few tributes made by different YouTubers but this one made by “Whaddo You Meme??” fascinated me the most because it laid down the tip of the legacy of Ravi Zacharias.
Legacy matters, especially for us who profess to follow Jesus Christ because our legacy tells what lies ahead of us.
It is good to have many followers on social media but what matters the most is the lives we impact for the Kingdom of God by our presence on social media.
And Ravi Zacharias impacted the lives of many (I think, countless people). He raised an army of apologists such as:
Frank Turkey (Cross Examined)
Lisa Fields (Jude 3 Project)
Bobby Conway (One Minute Apologist)
David Wood (Acts 17 Apologetics)
Matthew Mittleberg (RZIM)
Tim Barnett (Stand To Reason)
Abdu Murray (Seeing Jesus from the East)
As a Christian, follower of Jesus Christ, there is no ministry that gives me so much hope and confidence in the Gospel as apologetic.
My prayer is for God to quickly bless my Christian communities, Ethiopian and Eritrean Christian communities, with many apologists before we totally turn our backs on the pure Gospel of Christ. Apologists help us all to focus not on the gifts of God but on God Himself, on Jesus Christ.
When we focus on Jesus Christ, we know that we’re actually nothing but “sign boards” the glory of Christ must be reflected and displayed on. And when we know “what” we really are, it will become unthinkable for us to try to promote and glory ourselves and seek our glory and reward from the mere mortals.
Let’s stand on the shoulders’ of giants, like Ravi Zacharias.
“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the [b]author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB
If ministers of God impact, inspire and motivate the hearts and minds of many people, especially young men, they welcome death with joy and say to God, “Father, Your servants are now ready to depart from this life and be with you. So, please take us home.”
Ravi’s May 16th Twit reads like this:
“The story of the Gospel is the story of eternal life. My life is unique and will endure eternally in God’s presence. I will never be “no more.” I will never be lost because I will be with the One who saves me.”
Amen! What confidence! My life will never be “no more!” Praise God! ///
