Mr. John

Posted: Jun 11, 2010 by Kade in

Mr. John passed away yesterday during an operation on his heart. We knew him pretty well; he was a terrific guy! We visited him in the hospital on Tuesday... and he was just as cheery as always.

He was a retired pastor from California, and yet... he was still going strong for the Lord; he didn't retire from nuttin'! The day we visited him in the hospital, he was telling the nurse about Jesus! And he also asked for another Teens for Orphans wristband and said, "If anyone asks be about it, I can tell him about Jesus!".

Talk about going hard for the Lord... he was one of my boys.

I want to be just like him: my last lap, my last breath, I want to be proclaiming Jesus all the way.

    Awesome. I don't see any better way of going to be with Jesus than telling His name to others. As Francis Chan put it when talking about a similar situation, "One second he was proclaiming Jesus to people. The next moment Jesus was proclaiming him to God."


    Matthew 10:32

    So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven.

    Amen! That should all be our prayer!
