Parting Words

What does a Midwest baptist pastor say at the close of what no one expected to be his last sermon before standing before the Lord one second after being murdered in the pulpit?

"The only thing I really need is Jesus."

--Fred Winters, at 30:30 of his 3/1/09 message on Phil 4:10-20 at this church

The rest of us are not meant to say 'oh my' and move on in life un-phased. We are meant to examine ourselves, take fresh stock of what really captivates our heart, and believe the gospel all over again. See you soon Fred.
