The Northmead Assembly of God Church family joins the Body of Christ around the world in celebrating the illustrious life of Dr Ravi Zacharias (1946-2020).
This was a uniquely endowed life, that poured so much into the Lord’s Kingdom. An accomplished Apologist of the Christian Faith and a brilliant intellectual, Dr Zacharias consistently demonstrated an amazing humility and grace that often left ‘skeptics’ (in various debate fora) dumbfounded, when he responded to direct interrogations ever so gently, yet piercingly provocative towards consideration of some of life’s most important questions.
It is no wonder that his dedication to the cause of Christ inspired millions across the globe.
Soon upon, learning of his passing, we reflected on the following words; His very own words, as they best summarise the spiritual stature of this towering Servant of the Lord:
“The story of the Gospel is the story of eternal life. My life is unique and will endure eternally in God’s presence. I will never be “NO MORE.” I will never be lost, because I will be with the one who saves me.” (Ravi Zacharias)
Upon sending a condolence message to the Zacharias family through our friend Krish Dhanam, a close ministry partner of Dr Zacharias; Krish responded to us with words that help to describe the posture to assume at this time:
“David got up and worshiped God. Let us worship God for Ravi’s life, and immeasurable impact for the Lord he served, whom he now sees face to face.”
Fare well Dr. Ravi. In the sweet by and by, we shall meet on that beautiful shore!
