Live so as to be missed
“I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually” (2 Kings 4:9).
“There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods” (Dan. 5:11).
Brethren, we should live so as to be missed—missed both in the church and in the world—when we are removed. Oh, how rapidly is the time hastening on! We should live in such a manner as that, if we were called hence, our dear brethren and sisters might feel our loss, and from their innermost souls exclaim, “Oh, that such an one were in our midst again!” We ought to be missed even by the world. Worldly persons should be constrained to say of us, “If ever there was a Christian upon earth, that man was one.”
