1 Thessalonians 4:14
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
A pastor in visiting a member of his church found her very sick, apparently dying. He said to her: "Mrs. M., you seem to be very sick." "Yes," said she, "I am dying." "And are you ready to die?" She lifted her eyes upon him with a solemn and fixed gaze, and, speaking with great difficulty, she replied: "Sir, God knows — I have taken Him — at His word — and — I am not afraid to die." It was a new definition of faith. "I have taken Him at His word," What a triumph of faith! What else could she have said that would have expressed so much in so few words?
