Ebenezer Erskine, a devoted Scottish preacher, who died in 1754, was visited on his deathbed by a friend, who asked him, “What are you doing now with your soul, Mr. Erskine?” to which the dying man replied, “I am doing with it what I did forty years ago, resting it on the Word of the Lord.”
We can’t afford to ignore the solid rock of His Word –Eternity is far too important and Heaven is far more dearer.
(Prov. 4:7-9) Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.”
