It seems the perfect send off to my friend Fr. Sid Gervais who passed away this weekend — this, today’s entry in Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest which Chambers titles “Undaunted Radiance”:
“Nay, in all things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Romans 8:37
Chambers writes: “Undaunted radiance is not built on anything passing, but on the love of God that nothing can alter. The experiences of life, terrible or monotonous, are impotent to touch the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
That pretty much sums up how Sid lived, what he believed, and was a, perhaps the, basis for his interminably positive attitude, and it is his legacy he leaves for me, for us — “Nay, in all things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Romans 8:37
This short in stature, yet a giant in every other way, man – Sid, the conqueror.
