A Race Run Well

I recently blogged a sermon by Dan Cummings, a pastor who battled for a year with cancer. I just learned last night that he has gone to receive his reward (or, more appropriately, as one Puritan put it, gone to receive mercy!) As it is with any Christian, it is a time of both grief and rejoicing. Grief that someone who we love dearly is separated from us (for a time) but joy that he is in the arms of our merciful, loving Lord Jesus! Please join me in praying for the Cummings family and for the people of Five Points Community Church. May Christ draw near to them and comfort them, reminding them of the same trust their dear pastor had in the goodness and sovereignty of God in all things. Tomorrow will be hard for them, no doubt, but God will be the faithful shepherd of His flock and give them comfort and raise up another man to lead them on their pilgrimage home!
