When we live under the Abrahamic covenant, we will live long enough to fulfill our God-given destinies. For some, that will be sooner than others.
One tremendous example of this is the story of
five missionaries martyred by the Auca Indians in Ecuador years ago.
When they died, they were young in terms of chronological age, but these men lived long enough to fulfill their destinies. They opened the way for the gospel to reach these tribal people. Even today, their
legacy lives on through books and films like "Through Gates Of Splendor" and "The End Of The Spear" and in the lives of the Auca believers.
