To be sure that we do not get too far off track, I will be posting items of a spiritual, Christ-centered nature as I feel lead by the Holy Spirit. I know I’ve shared this before, but the grace and strength that my family has been able to face with the loss of Eddie all comes from Jesus. If we were not Christians nor was Eddie, then our Hope would die with Eddie. That is not the case; we serve a Living God, a Risen King, and our Lord is active in our lives.
If you’ve not experienced this, it is my family’s hope and prayer that through all of this, in the midst of such loss, that there would be much gain in the way of many people coming to salvation through Jesus Christ.
You do not need to be a Christian to be a part of the Hope Ride; but to be a part of the Eternal Hope that we have, you must be. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man comes to the Father except through Me.” Now that is quite a bold statement.
C.S. Lewis wrote that for someone to make a statement such as that, only three possibilities exist: Jesus is a Liar, a Lunatic, or He is Lord. I do not think it would take too much convincing to dismiss the first two.
Eddie wrote in a letter to me, dated four days after he wrote Hope, the following:
I think I’ve gotten closer to God than ever before. I can walk side by side with the demons, I can feel them…I can literally, physically feel them around me, but they are easily shooed away the very second I bow my head and call on the Person far more powerful than they are.
Now that is a powerful testimony to a powerful Savior! I would like to end this post with a video I put together featuring a new song by Mark Harris, the fine Christian singer whose music I used on the video tribute to Eddie. This is from his new album Windows and Walls and I recommend you all go out and buy it, regardless of your religious beliefs.
