Christian: He Lived in Peace & Died at Peace


An epitome of nobility. A beacon of excellence. The true definition of a gentleman. Although his personality wanted him to fit in, his intellect and creativity made him stand out. Soft-spoken. A man of few words. His body language and diction exemplified godly intelligence. His intrinsic ability to simplify the complicated was a gift like no other. He was the best of us, living up time and again to his name.


We know for sure that even if he doesn’t wake up soon, we will see him once again in glory. But why do good people die? I’ve stopped asking myself that question. No amount of explanation can quench the emotion within. Solomon knew what he was saying when he said that it is better to go to funerals than parties.

[3] Sorrow is better than laughter, for sadness has a refining influence on us. [4] A wise person thinks a lot about death, while a fool thinks only about having a good time.

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7:3‭-‬4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

For many of us, this is a turning point. A turning point to live right. A turning point to live out our purpose to the fullest. As young people, we think our lives are ahead of us. What is really ahead of us is death. It is inevitable. This life is short. So let Christian’s death bring life to you. A life of intentionality. A life of integrity. A life of excellence.


With tears in your eyes as you read this message, remember that you, also, are Christian. He lived in peace and died at peace. Therefore, I am not going to spend an iota of my short life worrying about needless casualties. I am going to live intentionally, living each day as if it were my last because it will most certainly be my last one day. May I embrace that day, knowing that I made the most of this short life.

Most of all, may I live life knowing fundamentally that I am a Christian. May that name be heavy on my heart and mean so much to me. May it be a reminder that although I may have chance to play, I don’t have time to waste. May we all die a Christian.

[1] Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. [2] For those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die.

Isaiah‬ ‭57:1‭-‬2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

In shadows cast by sorrow’s heavy veil,
Our hearts entwined, a bond that shall not fail.
Though tears may flow like rivers in the night,
Memories linger, casting gentle light.

In the tapestry of time, his spirit weaves,
A legacy of love that never leaves.
Through whispered winds and stars that brightly gleam,
His essence dances in the moonlit dream.

Grieve not alone, for in each other’s eyes,
His laughter echoes, and his spirit flies.
United in the solace that we share,
His memory blossoms, tender, and rare.

As petals fall, enclosing the earth’s embrace,
We find in unity, a sacred space.
For in our hearts, his presence shall reside,
An everlasting bond that death can’t hide.

Together, we shall navigate the pain,
A symphony of love, a gentle rain.
In this collective strength, we find our way,
Guided by his light, through night and day.

For every life, a thread in time’s grand art,
Though parting comes, love never does depart.

Just as he lived for Christ for his name’s sake,
May we live and die in peace till we awake

He wore nobility like a cloak of grace,
A beacon of excellence, a refined embrace.
In a world of conformity, he dared to be,
A true gentleman, his spirit flying free.

Few words, yet each held profound weight,
Soft-spoken echoes of a mind so great.
His intellect soared where others feared,
Creativity bloomed, and brilliance appeared.

In simplicity, he found his truest might,
Untangling complexities with pure insight.
A godly intelligence in every gaze,
His presence, a symphony of silent praise.

Rest in the peace you lived with. Till we meet again, Christian.
