Jack Arnold


Jack Arnold,
The Pastor Who Died in The Pulpit


Dear Congregation,

Today, in our Thanksgiving Service, we give thanks to God for His wonderful grace!  What a great thing for us to do everyday! His grace in Christ has captured us and set us free to live for Him

As an illustration, did you hear the story of the pastor who died in the pulpit last month?

He lived for God and here is the story of his death.

" Jack Arnold was preaching on the cost of discipleship. As he neared the end of the sermon he spoke of his favorite verse

"For me to live is Christ, to die is gain".

He quoted John Wesley saying,

"Until my work on this earth is done, I am immortal. But when my work for Christ is done,"

and he slapped his hands together toward the sky, saying

"I'm outta here! I don't know about you, but when my work is done, I go to be with Jesus. And that will be gain! And when I go to heaven, ......"

At this point Jack paused briefly, looked up, swayed slightly and grabbed the podium before falling back to the floor. And he was gone. "

Arnold had had bypass surgery five years earlier, and he apparently was a victim of cardiac arrest.

"Several members of the congregation worked on him until the medics arrived but appearances were that the Lord took him quickly and completely."

All of life is for God and I trust that all of us will love God and serve Him joyfully this year as we love each other and those God brings our way.
