TITLE: Unsung on earth, Hailed in Heaven

It was a solemn day, the day all the people who knew this person who had graduated from this life to the glory of God's kingdom. The weather was cold, as if the warmth of his friendship, companionship, and being had truly been extinguished. They gathered to honor his life; the one lived here on earth, but in turn were honoring God's call of purpose on his life.
You see, no one person had captured the full effect of this warrior's life upon this earth as he fought the battles unseen and silently for his King. Here and there, a person would mention this particular need he had met without condemnation and another would speak of his great care for those who were in their elder days. But neither knew of his work before the other mentioned it.
This unsung hero, during his life lived upon this earth, didn't do what the Lord called him to do for fanfare or for glorious accolades from his peers. He didn't perform mentoring amongst the physically challenged members of the human race to hear others say, "Wow, what a great job you've done." He didn't preach to the elders, what he considered the "saints" of the church in their humble nursing facilities to hear, and "What a nice young man." Nor did he spend the last two days of his life chasing down a newer version of the Holy Word and delivering it to the hands of the young one who was going to give up reading it because the translation was too hard to understand. He did it for one reason, to hear his Savior say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
The Enemy must've been enraged at this warrior's thwarting of his plan to prevent yet another soul to be saved. For coming back from delivering this precious gift, he was struck by a car and died a few weeks later. But, how Satan must've raged in his region of darkness because he caused this warrior to spring many branches in the people who came to honor him that cold day. From one warrior's fall, many were born.
