In 1959, Sir John Crowder retired from serving in the British House of Commons. Beatrice Roberts, the daughter of a local grocer, won his seat. After her election, Crowder was disgusted that a woman was elected to replace him.
You probably have never heard of Sir John Crowder. You probably have heard of Beatrice Roberts, knowing her better by her first name and her married name–Margaret Thatcher.
The world has long forgotten Sir John Crowder; the world will long remember Margaret Thatcher.
As nice as it is to be remembered for the rest of time; it is nicer to be remembered for eternity. Every Christian, even the lowliest one in the eyes of the world, will be remembered by God forever… if his name or her name is written into the Lamb’s book of life.
Like so many other things, with eternal life… it’s not what you know; it’s who you know.
Christians have the blessing of knowing Jesus.
