Paul Weldon Gillentine

October 10, 2011

The most important thing I could leave my loved ones and friends, if it were within my power, which it is not, would be faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Although that is within the power of the Creator and Lord God of the universe alone to give, I would urge all my family and friends, if they have not done so already, to flee to the Savior in repentance and faith. Let my death be an occasion of reminder that life is short. Do not wait until it is too late. May God grant you grace to do so.
