Godspeed seems a funny thing to wish for Ravi Zacharias, age 74, who went to his eternal home May 19, 2020, just eight days ago. He’s certainly been in the actual presence of the Lord for some time now, or no time, for that’s what eternity is. But “Godspeed” comes to me now, as we consider his journey, impact, and continuing legacy in Christ.
Certainly it seems to me and most of the Christian world he can say with Paul at the end of his life:
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.” 2 Tim 4:7-8
Below is a link to get to know and appreciate Ravi Zacharias. I encourage you to sit with your family and tell them we’re going to get to know one of the modern Fathers of the Faith, one of the best known Christian apologists in history, who passed away a few days ago. We need to know who he is, his life message, and a little about the books and YouTube videos he’s produced in his life time, so we can share them with others when the need arises. And we need to thank God for his life, and pray for blessings on his family.
You and your family will be enriched by hearing this! Because of his testimony, and what the Lord has done with him. It will also serve as an introduction to Eric Metaxas of NYC who is a great author, Christian biographer, and talk show host… a light bearer in our dark times.
Blessings as you watch and receive insights into the King and His Kingdom.
“Love is the most powerful apologetic. It is the essential component in reaching the whole person in a fragmented world. The need is vast, but it is also imperative that we be willing to follow the example of Jesus and meet the need.“
I might add this as a possible tribute or gift in memory of Ravi and his life poured out for many. Wellspring
