Dr. S. D. Gordon tells of an old Christian woman whose age began to affect her memory. She had once known much of the Bible by heart. Eventually only one precious bit stayed with her, "I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day." By and by, part of that slipped away, and she would quietly repeat, "that which I've committed unto him."
At last, as she hovered on the borderline between life and death, her loved ones noticed her lips moving. They bent down to see if she needed anything. She was repeating over and over again the one word of the text that she remembered, "Him, Him, Him." She had lost her whole Bible, but one word captured her attention. One word inspired her with hope, and in that one word she understood the most significant truth of the Bible - that Christ is all in all.
