- 1 Corinthians 15:57 (ESV)
There's just something about going to the big game and watching your favorite tight end make a dream catch for a touchdown. Frankly, I can think of no player in the game who did it better better than Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints in his glory years, shown here celebrating with a slam dunk over the bar at the goal post. We all love to be victorious and sports is certainly one time when the excitement of the crowd adds to the achievement. And there are many other great examples such as the time you watch your little boy or girl master the art of bicycle riding, that day he or she brought home an "A" on the big math test, or maybe it's the victory of being awarded a promotion and a pay raise from your employer for your dedication and hard work.
All of those things and so many more are victories, but they are minor events compared to the victory in life we attain when we make our commitment to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. All of the other things fade to memories and when this life is done we can't take them with us. But with Jesus as our priority in life, not only does He guide us and lead us down the road of Truth, he also grants us the Glory of salvation and eternal life when our time as a mortal on earth is done. And that, my friends, is the ultimate victory in life, the attainment of Eternity.
This week on Sunday Morning Coming Down we'll talk about that greatest of all victories. We'll also have a short scripture reading, prayer and some good Christian music. Won't you join us for the show which is already pre-recorded and on demand 24/7. It gives us a few moments at a convenient time to remember the gift that we have been given and why our Christian faith is so important. Here's the link to the show:
Sunday Morning Coming Down is a production of North Florida Writer Live designed for anyone who wants to learn more about the Christian faith or just celebrate the joy that we have in our hearts for the ultimate gift that God in heaven above gave us through his precious son, Jesus Christ. God bless you all.
