Executing Christ’s Last Will and Testament

April 23, 2009

A person’s Last Will and Testament may contain very specific instructions to the Executor or it may have areas that are very general in nature. It is the duty of the Executor to follow the instructions spelled out in the will as closely as possible to the wishes of the deceased.

The specific areas of the will, in most cases, are the easiest for the Executor to follow. He has little discretion of his own in following these instructions.

The general areas of the will can be more difficult in trying to carry out the wishes of the deceased. It is imperative that the Executor have knowledge of the likes and dislikes of the deceased, it is helpful if the Executor has spent time with the deceased to better understand what would please them in meeting their requests.

Christians are the Executors of Christ’s Last Will and Testament. In some cases, Christ has given us very specific instructions which are clearly spelled out in his word. We must follow these instructions implicitly, regardless of our wishes.

There are other areas of Christ’s Last Will and Testament which can only be fulfilled if we have studied his words and understand what pleases him. We must spend time with him (in his word) in order to perform our role as Executors of his Estate.

John 14:15—“If you love me, keep my commandments.”
