The Lord appoints the day of our birth and our death. It appears this man ran his course well and was faithful to the end. What a great testimony to the Lord and His truth. May we all be likewise faithful in our varied vocations until the Lord comes or calls us to Himself.
1Ti 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 1Ti 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
