Apr 28 – Robert Test’s Last Wish

Abigail Van Buren, writes the column Dear Abbey. In a recent article, she gave the heart-touching story of Robert Test, who, knowing he was dying, expressed his wish that his death would give life to others. He detailed his desire for the donating of his eyes, heart, blood, kidneys and other body parts to others, to give them a new chance at life. Robert Test was, indeed, a selfless, generous thoughtful man. And his life and death are pictures of, the Lord Jesus Christ. When we were born, we were born to live. But Jesus, unlike anyone else, was born to die so we could have life, eternal life. Paul told us “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” To make that gift happen, “Christ died for our sins. ”That’s what He meant when He said, “I have come that they (mankind) may have life.” What a gift! Have you received it?
