My heart leaps with joy not sadness, as I heard the news of the passing of Dr Charles Stanley. He’s one of my favourite preachers, whose messages I’ve listened to for years. I’ve never met him, neither did I know him in person. But listening to him explain the words of the Bible in a simple easy-to-understand-manner, made me develop a deeper love for God’s word. Something I will never ever forget.
It shows you don’t have to know someone inorder to impact their life. I remember writing about legacy (on my blog) when I lost my mum, because I heard the amazing stories people shared about her life. A short while after, I came across Dr Charles Stanley’s message on Legacy. It gave me the assurance that building and leaving a lasting legacy that would outlive us (for God’s glory) is the way to go. For that, I will forever remember him. Especially for the legacy he left for us, to always ‘OBEY GOD AND LEAVE ALL THE CONSEQUENCES TO HIM.”
Farewell Dr Charles Stanley, (to me) you were a man who taught the world the gospel truth about God without compromise. Rest in the perfect peace of God, till we (finally) meet in eternity by the special grace of God.
Please see links below for videos and tributes given to this amazing servant of God. He’s done the work God sent him to do (here on earth), left a legacy for God and I hope it will encourage you to do the same.
