Extracted from "The Final Challenge" By Dr Wagne Cordeiro

"The richest spot on the face of the earth cannot be found in the diamond mines of South Africa or the Inca gold caches of Ecuador. It is not in the oil fields of Saudi Arabia nor in the uranium excavations of the Balkans. Neither is it in the mineral deposits of the Dead Sea. No, the richest plot of land on this planet is in your very own neighborhood.

You might even have passed by it this morning. It’s the cemetery. "That’s right! The grave­yard is the wealthiest place in all of creation. Beneath those rectangular pieces of sod lie countless unsung melodies and unwritten poems. The grassy plots overflow with brilliant ideas that could have trans­formed entire communities, rehabilitated the lost and borne hope to the weary. Our burial grounds reek with unattained successes and unrealized dreams. Sometimes I walk through graveyards and speculate how many unfulfilled promises and untapped dreams lie dormant under my feet. I ponder the many lives that fell short of God’s intended purpose.

Millions of men and women have died with their aspi­rations yet unleashed, their dreams now forever trapped beneath the turf. If I could mine the cemeteries in my neighborhood alone, I would be one of the richest men on the place of the earth. Will you add to the wealth of the graveyards?

I wonder—What are you carrying inside of you right now? Too many in our families and churches die rich, with dreams clutched tightly to their stilled hearts. Too many go to their graves with their potential trapped inside. If we could harness the unused power from one graveyard alone, we could change the world! But, of course, we can’t. We can tap only the potential of the living.

"So long as breath remains in our lungs, untapped] potential lies inside us, waiting to be released. The reason we are still alive is that we are carrying something inside us that this generation needs. That’s why we’re not yet in heaven. "My motto in life is “Die empty!” I aim to give the graveyard nothing but a vacant carcass of a used-up life. I want the words on my tombstone to read “Empty!” Nothing left. No more gas.Good to the Last Drop!"

  • Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand. Proverbs 19:21
  • For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
  • For I have come down from heaven not to do my own will and purpose but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent Me. John 6:38




Spotlight Scripture

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).
