Tonight, we express our sorrow at the news that blog-neighbor Michael Spencer (the Internet Monk) has gone home to be with the Lord.

Michael has been in the Christian blogging community for a long time, and it’s no lie to say that his voice and witness are irreplaceable.   He will be missed.

I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die.

I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though this body be destroyed, yet shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger.

We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
