The Race Is On Sunday, March 21, 2010
Big day for races. First, our congressmen were racing to cast their votes on health care reform. I definitely have an opinion but now's not the time or place. (You can ask me personally if you want to). Then, the jets flew over my house signifying the NASCAR race in Bristol was starting. I really don't care who won that one.
A third race that I heard no one mention today is the race to win the prize of the high calling of God. Obviously the most important race that occurred today. But unlike the vote and car races, this one goes on. Will you win?
The prize for health care depends on which side of that fence you're on. Not sure what the reward is for racing a car around in circles all afternoon but I'm sure there was some cash involved. But the prize for serving Jesus - WOW! I want that one.
I want to hear my Savior say to me, "well done". That's the prize I'm looking for. Will you win that prize? It's for anyone who earns it. Salvation is a free gift and not earned. But once you trust Jesus, well, "start your spiritual engines and cast your vote" for a lifetime of loving on Jesus. That's the way you win the prize for the high calling of God. Run to Win!
