Dwight L. Moody was once asked, "Dr. Moody, do you have dying grace?" "No, I don't," he answered.--"I'm not dying yet!" But when it comes time to die, He'll give you dying grace--the grace to die gracefully as a witness and a testimony!--"As thy days, so shall thy strength be!" (Deu.33:25) Whether you die a martyr's death or you die peacefully, you'll die in the Spirit and in the Lord and in faith, praising the Lord. You'll have dying grace when the time comes!
Jesus obviously felt pain! He certainly died in agony, and no doubt many of the martyrs felt pain and died in agony. But He'll never let anything happen to you more than you are able to bear, not even death! (1Cor.10:13) He'll give you the grace to bear it with joy and thanksgiving!--Dying grace!
When the moment of death comes, God will give you such grace and such peace and such love, such rest, perfect confidence, perfect faith, no fear, all joy, all thankfulness, praising the Lord and thanking God that at last it is all over! You've done it, you've made it! It's behind you. That's it! Never again! Heaven forever! Happiness eternally! Total glory! Sudden death, sudden glory! Hallelujah!
