What do you say when you are about to die? Part 3

I think of the story an elderly Scottish woman who lay at death’s door. Her pastor came to see her, and as was the custom, he inquired into the reality of her faith, probing deeply. At last, he asked her this penetrating question: “Sadie, after all God has done for you, suppose that when you die, He still allows you to perish. What then?”
Sadie answered, “Well, that’s up to Him. He will do what He will. However, if He does allow me to perish, then He will lose more than I, for though I will lose my soul, He will lose His honour, for He has promised me in His Word, ‘He that trusteth in Me shall never perish.’”
