Ya know, we're all going to die someday, thats just a given in life. It doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, where you are at in life, in the end we're all going to stand before the Lord Almighty.

David had numerous enemies in his life and they were all after his head. As Christians in a world that will only continue to get worse, there way come a point in time where I may lay my life down for
my faith. But that won't be the end, that'll be very begining of true life as I wake and see the Lord's likness.
