consider it pure joy, my friend

On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Nabeel Qureshi, age 34, entered into the joy of his master, Jesus Christ, after enduring a yearlong battle with cancer.

There are only so many deaths that a person can hold in their heart. I have mine, and I will remember yours Nabeel, and your family, and your hope. Grant it to me, Lord, that my life might not be cheaply squandered and wasted away on worthless things, but that with all the time that I am given I might walk in the footsteps of my Christ, of sacrifice, of humility, of suffering, of joy.

“it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.”

So be it unto me.
