A Message from a Dying Man to Dying Men:

How to live:

  1. Learn to live under, love, and trust the sovereignty of God. This gives you stability and peace.
  2. Learn to live enjoying the grace of God.
  3. Learn to stay close to the Word of God – 1 Corinthians 4:6 – “Nothing beyond what is written”
  4. Learn to read your Bible – “Don’t explain what the Bible means until you know what the Bible says.” The Question: “But WHAT does the Bible SAY?
  5. Learn the power of the church.
  6. Develop a passion for holiness

How to die:

  1. Accept death as natural in this fallen world.
