As most of you know, our brother Pastor Steve Fernandez entered glory in the presence of Jesus this last Sunday evening, March 31. What a way to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior!
By God’s power, Steve faithfully lived, and often quoted (even in his final days), these words from the Apostle Paul in Phil. 1:21 – “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” To strengthen your understanding and embracing of this powerful resolve, let me encourage you to read, think upon, and pray through the following:
- A brief devotional by C.H. Spurgeon on Phil. 1:21
- A longer sermon by Dr. Martyn-Lloyd Jones on Phil. 1:21
Brothers and sisters, each of our lives on this earth will one day end, either by death, or our Lord’s return. May the Lord enable each of us to truly live with this same Christ-exalting resolve!
Because He lives,
