Dr. Geza Soos
“ . . . and what doth the
Lord require of thee, but to
do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with
thy God?” (Micah 6:8)
The Lord has called Dr. Geza Soos in
to richer service in His Eternal Home.
Dr. Soos was completely dedicated to the
Lord Jesus Christ, Who used him greatly
in Europe and in the United States.
It is impossible to put into words all
that Dr. Soos meant to us; in chapel, in
class, in Sunday evening get-togethers, and
in simple, everyday experiences, he in
spired, encouraged, and challenged us to
“walk after the Spirit, not after the flesh”,
to be Christians, not only in name, but
also in every thought, word, and deed.
“The Abundant Life,” explained Dr.
Soos, “consists in sharing our Savior with
0‘hers. We are not called to selfish sal
vation.” The Lord chose him to live
dangerously for “His Sake and the
Gospel’s” — dangerously, but victoriously.
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he
that believeth in me, though he were
dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever
liveth and believeth in me shall never
die.” (John 11: 25, 26)
We are so thankful to God lor having
