Warren Cornelius

Loving Devotion

The world has lost another good man. His name was Warren Cornelius. He lived 96 years on this
planet, and he filled those 96 years with lots of love, hunting, fishing, and storytelling. He was
one of the best storytellers, ever.

Warren lost the love of his life 10 years ago. Her name was Dorothy. They were married for 65

Warren had a way of "enhancing" or "embellishing" his stories to really make them captivating to his
hearers. He used vivid details as he told his stories about hunting, fishing, or interacting with
other people. But there is one story about Warren that needs no embellishment to make it more
interesting, because it's true and it demonstrates true love.

Warren's loving wife, Dot (as he called her), had Alzheimer's disease in the last years of her life.
For as long as he could, Warren kept his dear wife at home and cared for her. When it got to the
point when he couldn't, he painfully took her to live in an assisted living facility that was
equipped to take better care of her needs. But Warren didn't stop caring for her. He went to see
Dot every day, three times a day. He would go at meal times to feed her when she got to the point
where she couldn't feed herself.

As the disease progressed, Dot lost her memory. She even lost her ability to recognize her loving
husband. That didn't stop Warren. He said, "She may not know who I am, but I know who she is."
And he kept going, he kept caring, he kept helping, until she passed away.

That love and devotion that Warren displayed reflects the love of the God that he sought to serve.

"Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: 'The Lord knows those who are
His,' and, 'Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.'" - 2 Timothy 2:19

"The Lord knows those who are His." He knows. and He cares.

He cares so much about you, me, and every person in the world that He gave His one and only Son to
die on the cross so that we may have the forgiveness of our sins, be added to His family, and
receive the gift of eternal life (Ephesians 1:7; Acts 2:41, 47; Romans 6:23).

God will forgive and add to His family those who place their faith and trust in His Son Jesus (Acts
16:30-31), turn from their sins in repentance (Acts 17:30-31), confess Jesus before men (Romans
10:9-10), and are baptized (immersed) into Christ (Acts 2:38). He will continue to cleanse from sin
and prepare for heaven those who continue to walk in the light of His Word (1 John 1:7-9).

"The Lord knows those who are His." He knows you and He wants you to be a part of His forever

Won't YOU accept His offer of grace and eternal life on His terms?

-- David A. Sargent

* In loving memory of Warren I. Cornelius (February 12, 1922 - August 26, 2018). Thank you for
showing us what God's love is like.
