I want to share something amazing with you. I have had a very full weekend filled to the brim with activity. My church had it's annual Gospel Meeting with a wonderful guest speaker and I was truly blessed by hearing his sermons. This morning he was telling us about his parents. He mother died when he was only four years old. His father - a strong man of God himself - then raised him alone and loved him deeply. He said he was so glad that his father got to live long enough to see him become a preacher. His dad even got to lead the singing at his first two Gospel Meetings that he spoke at.
Then our speaker shared with us they way his father died. He got up on Sunday morning to teach the morning Sunday School class. He walked up to the pulpit looked out at the audience and said, "There has never been a perfect man in this world except for Jesus Christ." And then, he fell over dead. He had a massive brain aneurysm that killed him instantly.
Can you imagine dying with the name of Jesus Christ on your lips? Can you imagine teaching others about Christ being your very last act of life? Can you imagine a better way to die? Because I certainly cannot! This man was truly blessed. His family is blessed as well ~ what an amazing legacy to leave behind and what a comfort to his loved ones to know he was serving God with literally his last breath.
