... I have kept the faith.

No WWWednesday post today.

William Piper, father to Desiring God's Pastor John Piper, passed away yesterday. Pastor John has posted these reflections on his time with his father, watching his dad slip into eternity. Everyone should read them...

Now ask yourself this, as I am: When our time comes to leave this world, what will be the legacy you leave behind? What will your children say and think of while at your side? What impact will you have had on the people around you? And I don't mean just in 'the now', since we know that will be blown away like dust, but for eternity...

First, Al Groves. Then Bruce Metzger. And now, Bill Piper. May we use their passings to remind us of what really matters and celebrate lives that fought the fight for Christ.

  • A tissue warning would have been appropriate. Goodness.


    I've enjoyed poking around the rest of your blog -
