Lecture 6, The Missionary:
Jonathan Edwards died at the age of fifty-five. Although not young, relative to our era it seems premature. What might his mind have produced if he possessed even a few more years on this earth? Edwards would probably have never entertained this thread of thought. He understood that God’s providence never fails to accomplish its task perfectly and to completion. God had other plans for Edwards, and none of them went awry. On the contrary, He demonstrated his faithfulness to this man and his family despite the tragic conditions under which they died. He brought them home to heaven, where they reside in the love of our Savior.
