BREATH(less)

“No, despite all these things,
overwhelming victory is ours through Christ,
who loved us.”

ROMANS 8:37 NLT


Hey, why not me? Recently there was a lot of buzz about the winners of the MegaBucks. Three people split the $640 million in prize money, netting a cool $35 million each (after taxes). My first thought was, Will they go back to work? Would you? (For that matter, would I?) But the truth is, as Christians we have been given the immeasurable treasure of salvation through Christ. We’ve won the lottery. Yep. Mansions in Heaven. Streets of Gold. Gem encrusted gates. A girl could get used to that! But seriously, knowing what a treasure we have in Jesus (which when I really stop to think about it – takes my breath away!)…are we going to get back to work or are we going to sit back and enjoy our cushy Christianity while “God moves”. The Scripture encourages us to use our time on earth purposefully, to bring glory to God while waiting patiently for His return. “Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen.” James 5:7 So, whatever you’re waiting for today…never give up hope. Keep your eyes on the real prize, He’s worth it all!
