SIXTY-EIGHT YEARS LATER

SIXTY-EIGHT YEARS LATER

William Tyndale, who was born in 1494, believed in the authority of the scriptures and did more in the way of translation of the English Bible than any other man.
Tyndale told a Church Bishop, “I will make it possible for the boy who drives the plow to know as much scripture as you do.”
He spent the last five hundred days of life in a cold, dark, lonely prison cell. On October 6, 1536, Tyndale was tied to a beam in a public square, then strangled and burned to death.
His last prayer was, “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.”
The Lord answered that prayer sixty-eight years later. He opened King James I eyes and he authorized the translation of the King James Version.
-Preface to the King James Version
----
We can never know the cost of obedience … but we can certainly rest secure in its ability to procure a peace, rest, and security for the soul.
Whatever God has called you to do … be about it.
There is nothing you could give up on earth that eternity won’t make up to you.
Allow God to make a William Tyndale out of your life.

“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it.”
Matthew 16:25
