Life assurance is far more valuable and important than life insurance. One famous atheist said, "The one thing I envy about you Christians is that you have someone to forgive you."


A man by the name of Val Patterson died on July 12th of this year due to cancer. He knew the end was coming, so he wrote his own obituary notice. Because of the some things he said, it went viral. One of the things that he said was: "Now that I have gone to my reward, I have confessions and things I should now say. As it turns out, I AM the guy who stole the safe from the Motor View Drive Inn back in June 1971. I could have left that unsaid, but I wanted to get it off my chest."


Forty-one years earlier as a teen, he committed a robbery. Though he wasn’t caught by the police, he was never able to escape the voice of a guilty conscience. King David said in Ps 32:1: "Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered." It is no small comfort when you come to the end of your journey that you know that your sins are forgiven, that they are not screaming at you in the corridors of your mind, hounding you and chasing you as you pass from this world to the next.


(From a sermon by Rick Crandall, Taking on our Tongue Trouble, 8/24/2012)
