Don Fuller, 67 years old,a good friend of mine, just had a 4 by-pass heart surgery about 4 months ago. My wife and I visited him at the hospital in Indianapolis. I greeted Don in my usual fashion, “How ya doin’, Brother?”, and he replied as he always did; “Sittin’ on top of the mountain looking for higher peaks”.

I asked Him how he could face this kind of surgery with that attitude?

He said, Because if I live, great. But if I die, I’ll get to see Jesus because he lives. I know that because I’ve read the last chapter.”

The apostle Paul said in Phil. 1:21-22 “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”


WE WIN!!! Have you read the last chapter?

Remember that first Easter morning when Jesus body was lying in the grave? The Father spoke out and said, “Son, you’ve done everything I’ve asked you to do, now let’s get out of here.”

And he arose from the grave. WE CELEBRATE THAT!!!
