I was struck by this statement from D. James Kennedy on how he wanted others to view his death:
“… I don’t want them to cry. I want them to begin the service with the Doxology and end with the Hallelujah chorus, because I am not going to be there, and I am not going to be dead,” he said. “I will be more alive than I have ever been in my life….”
What a beautiful and confident statement of faith.
