2nd Timothy 4:6-8
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.
DR. LOWELL DAVEY
July 22, 1933 – February 18, 2017
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Just after 4am Eastern Time Saturday morning, Dr. Lowell Davey, founder and president of the Bible Broadcasting Network, reached completion in the Lord Jesus Christ as he passed into His presence at the age of 83. All of us at BBN are deeply saddened for our loss here on earth, but we are equally joyful for Dr. Davey as he is now face to face with his Savior whom he loved and served faithfully for so many decades.
When Dr. Davey passed away, he did so with the testimony of a good and faithful servant. Lowell’s faithfulness to serving the Lord and leading others to serve Him is a legacy in itself. Truly great things are not measured in years; rather, their impact reaches into eternity. As we look at the good work that the Lord began in the life of Lowell Davey, we realize the accomplishments are all God’s. The glory is all God’s. The blessings are all ours.
Please pray for Mrs. Davey, their family, and all of us at BBN. God has not finished His work in us. There is still much to do. So even in our sorrow, we can still say, “To God be the glory. Great things He hath done!”
