Obituary: A notice of death, usually with a brief biography of the deceased. What's so important about an obituary anyway? An obituary can serve as a testimony of one's faith in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Do you know that 95 percent of all Christians never lead a single soul to Jesus Christ? I fall into that 95 percent group, too. Oh, I have had talks about Jesus with several people, but I have never truly led someone to Jesus Christ.

I have read many obituaries, but I have never read one that gave a testimony about Jesus Christ in their life. Why is that? Accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour is the single most important thing we can do in our life and we should all want to give a testimony to all that would listen.

Your obituary can do things that you could never do or say, just think about it and remember it is your obituary. Happy writing and may God bless us all.
