A Letter to a Dying Friend

A Final Letter…

Written to a friend who only had a few days left to live. He had suffered with colon cancer for two years. He needed Christ.

Dear Bruce, viagra canada hospital

Myrna was sad she could not see you before you left. We actually arrived at our cabin only minutes before you departed. She told me to tell you that she loves you and will continue to pray for you.

I so much appreciated our time together, cialis usa and and will continue to pray that the next few days won’t be so painful or discouraging to you.

Along with my prayers for all the pain you are suffering are prayers for a commitment you might make to Christ before you pass from this earth.

As I explained in my own testimony to you, purchase I came to know Christ as Lord and Savior when I was very young. I have not regretted that decision; I know He has been with me ever since. And should I die tomorrow, I know I would be with Him forever.

Of course this is all a matter of faith as we discussed, but I would rather believe that Christ is awaiting me in heaven, then to believe nothing is there when I die or that I no longer serve any purpose. I would rather believe in Christ, and have His assurance that I will be with my loved ones forever (those who likewise, put their trust in Him as Lord and Savior), then to never see them again.

So such a decision based on faith is a big one, Bruce, because it not only determines the right now in your life, it determines your eternity. So why not believe, Bruce? Why not take this step of faith and put your trust in Him? What can you lose? If He is not there, then He is not there, and you lose nothing. But if He is there…and His salvation is real…. and you refuse to believe…. then you have lost everything. You lose salvation, you lose a heavenly reward, you lose His continuing purpose in your life, and you lose being reunited with all those you love (those who have likewise put their faith in Him).

If you are not sure about what to do now, then take these 3 following steps:

  1. Ask Christ to forgive you of your sins. Sin is what keeps you from Him and out of heaven. We have all sinned in one way or another. The Bible teaches that if we sin just once, if we break His laws just once, then we are lost

    . But He sent Jesus Christ, His Son, to die for all of our sins, and that means every sin you have committed, Bruce. In other words He took the rap for all you sins and mine, for all of our sins. When you ask His forgiveness this is called repentance. All you have to do is say, “Lord, forgive me.” That’s it! That is all there is to being forgiven. The minute you asked forgiveness; He forgives.

  2. Ask Christ into your life. Since there is nothing separating you from God now (your sin is forgiven by your repentance), ask Him to come into your life. Say, “Lord come into my life.” That’s it, that’s all you have to say.
  3. Thank Him for what He has done for you. This last step is a step of gratitude. Just say, “Lord, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins, for coming into my life.”  That’s it, that is all there is to it.

Last thoughts

If you do these steps, Bruce, you will find peace as never before. I know, I have experienced it. You will have peace because your sins are forgiven, you have Christ in your heart, and you have heaven as a reward.

If you make this decision I would love to know. So please write or call me. Many are praying that you will make this decision. Even though you do not know them right now, you will later on when you meet them in heaven.

Lastly, Bruce, I am sending you a little booklet written by Rick Warren. It is called

“What on Earth Am I Here For?” It is a great follow up to all that I have shared. I have also listed some Scriptures below which validate what I have shared today.

May God be with you Bruce, both Myrna and I will be praying for your during these last days.

Path of Salvation from God’s Word

The truth about our need for God

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

The result of sin; the result of Christ!

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our

Lord.

He paid the price for your sin

John 3:16-18

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

What you need to do now!

Matthew 4: 17

From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Revelation 3:20

 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.

Romans 10:9-11

If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.”

What do you receive in return?

John 11 25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Galatians 2 20

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Post Script

Dear Kent and Myrna

(Edited summary)

“It occurred to me that perhaps you have not received news of Bruce’s passing. He is in God’s hands now; I know this in my heart. He died here at home with all of us on October 1st. It was only today that I found the letter you sent to Bruce after the time you spent together this past summer. Thank you for keeping him in your prayers.”

I hope you are well, from the heart,

Carol

I don’t know what Bruce’s final commitment to the Lord was before he died, but he certainly had time to receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Perhaps he did, and if so, I will look forward to seeing him in heaven when my time comes to depart this earth.
