What a frenzy all across the nation yesterday as people flocked to gas stations, convenience stores and grocers to get their hands on a ticket that could result in life changing riches.
It made me think, the world has a life changing opportunity that is greater than any lottery ticket, and greater than any riches. But, do the people flock with a great frenzy to get their hands on the opportunity to build a relationship with Jesus Christ, the same way people flock to a gas station for a lottery ticket. The simple answer is no.
We have a great opportunity to share the abounding grace and mercy of God through Jesus Christ every day. The result of that grace and mercy is more life changing than any lottery winnings.
Ephesians 2:4-5 "But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It's only by God's grace that you have been saved)
What an amazing sense of peace and security, to know that even though we were dead by our sins, because of the grace of God, we have been given life, which is greater than any lottery winnings can EVER offer.
In HIS Service,
