A CHOICE TO DIE?
THE WISE PREACHER, KING SOLOMON WROTE in Ecclesiastes3: “there are a season and a time for everything under the sun. There is a time to plant and a time to harvest a time to scatter and a time to gather so is there a time to be born and a time to die.” Death would ultimately come to all mortals though, but for one to willingly choose to die is another thing altogether.

On this note, his decision to continue his journey to Accra meant he had settled the issue in his mind to go ahead and die.
This incident brings to mind a similar dilemma in the life of the Apostle Paul. The great Apostle had done so much for Christ on earth and he had reached the peak of his ministry. He could sense his spirit that it was time to go to be with the Lord but he also loved the Church so much that he wished he would rather stay on earth. In his dilemma, he wrote this to the Church in Philippi:
