One of the old martyrs said to his persecutors as they were leading him to his death, "You take a life from me that I cannot keep, and bestow a life upon me that I cannot lose." - Dwight L. Moody
To have the assurance and faith to speak these words, as your last words, is truly remarkable. It speaks of a depth of Trust in Jesus that I long to have. It reminds us all that the one thing we are all obsessed about preserving (Life) is the one thing we cannot hold onto. Makes you think, doesn't!?
Matthew 16:25 - For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
