How Will Your Life Story End! How Will Your Legacy Be Defined!


When he was in his early thirties, Bishop TD Jakes once got a rare opportunity to talk to Dr. Oral Roberts, a man who had served God with distinction. Dr. Roberts was around eighty years at that time.

“It must be exciting to be at this age Dr. Roberts?” asked a young TD Jakes. 

“Why do you say so young man?” inquired back Dr. Roberts, amazed by a young minister’s question. 

“Because you know how your story ends”, responded TD Jakes. 

The whole discussion brought about a different perspective altogether to the lives of the two men who have served God with extraordinary distinction in their respective eras and generations. 

It is important to start your life on a good footing because this will most likely shape the rest of your life. However, with or without a good foundation, what matters most is how your story will end. Is it going to end on a good or bad footing? When the sun finally sets on you on this earth, how will God define your legacy? How will heaven receive you? How will your descendants define your legacy? 

Many times the world has witnessed the emergence of multi-talented people who later on die of drug overdose. Many great talents have been lost due to drug-trafficking and gun violence. Some are still alive today but locked-up in maximum prisons for the rest of their lives. How will your story end?

Some great leaders have endured sour marriages and ended up murdering their spouses. Other high-ranking officials have marred their life-long legacies with rape and indecent assault convictions. The world has witnessed a number of high-profile public figures dying at the hands of their boyfriends or girlfriends, bringing shame to their families. Even pastors have not been spared of this scourge either. The million-dollar question still remains: How will your story end? How will God define you? How will the heavens receive you? How will your descendants describe your patriarchal status? 

Ladies and gentlemen, let us not be like Judas Iscariot who served under the inner-circle of Jesus Christ and endured a very sad ending. Our ending is much more important than our beginning.

Let’s secure our legacies and destinies; firstly for our own good, and for the good of those who will come after us.
