Yesterday, at 3:50 pm, Kyle Wagner joined the chorus of the saints who have gone before us. I must say that I have never looked back on the life of any individual with as much gratitude as I do with Kyle. I am grateful to God that I was able to know Kyle, for the conviction that he often gave me, and the encouragement that he always was to me. Although he wasn’t convinced by all of my theology (he told me that I wasn’t making any sense) he willingly suffered for the glory of God.
Kyle regularly sent emails out to his church family and friends. In recent days, his emails grew shorter and shorter. Here is the final email he sent out. Be blessed by it:
By grace now I’m saved—Hallelujah!
Praise God, and through faith it’s been done;
Naught of myself, but believing
In the finished work of His Son. —Gladwin
We are saved not by what we do but by trusting what Christ has done.
