John 11:25-26 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
President Washington passed into eternity on December 14th, 1799. He had gotten sick from riding his horse on a cold and rainy day on his Mount Vernon estate, and his ailment progressed beyond his ability to arrest it.
Among his final words, Washington resolutely proclaimed: “I am not afraid to go” and he closed his life with the phrase “Tis Well.” He was able to speak so boldly because he understood the words from John 11 which he had inscribed on his tomb:
“I am the resurrection and the life; sayeth the Lord. He that believeth in me, though he were dead yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”
It is through this truth that Washington gained boldness. He boldly lived and he boldly died.
PLEASE PRAY AND LIVE BOLDLY THROUGH THE TRUTHS OF GOD’S PROMISES. We can come boldly to Him, and should live boldly for Him. No matter the situation, for the child of God – Tis Well!
