Last Words?

His doctor later conceded he had a less than 1% chance of surviving his life threatening Acute Aortic Dissection even with surgery. But he did PTL! Later he sent me this video clip he made (with some help from life flight helicopter paramedics) of what he thought would be his last message to his family on his iPhone. At this point in his experience, death seemed acutely real and imminently close. But he was trying to be courageous...

Some of the apostle Paul's courageous last words can be found in Acts 20:24 NLT, "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God." What will your last words be?
