On Saturday we attended the funeral of one of our authors, John Grant. John was also editor of the Believer’s Magazine for 17 years and a tireless advocate of John Ritchie. I sat in the service with many wonderful memories flooding through my mind of a man who was always the same and I also found myself challenged by the life he had lived, completely given over to the service of God. The editorial and articles for the magazine would appear on our desks no matter where John was in the world, and whilst he had a good team working with him, we know he spent long hours in different time zones making sure the magazine went to print on time. He and I had plans to publish one more book but the Lord had other ideas and took him home to be with Him and for him we know it’s far better. I shall miss his telephone calls and our chats about the “good old days at Ritchies” but he has left such a legacy to us here at Kilmarnock. John penned two of our What The Bible Teaches on Deuteronomy and Exodus and the book Living For God along with the whole of the Family Series.
Philippians 1:23………..with Christ which is far better.
