Christmas. Christ was born to die on the cross. So this is a time to celebrate and remember God coming to live alongside us that we might have access to Him.
The sports page has a quote from NBA player Michael Beasley, commenting on playing again after the lockout, he said “We were bored! Now we feel like we’ve got a purpose in life. We can do what we do best.”
I’m not gonna pretend that NBA players are out on the court solving the world’s hunger problem or finding cures for cancer. They get paid to play basketball. I hope Michael Beasley doesn’t really think that there is no purpose in life outside of basketball. If so, he’s gonna have a rude awakening.
Beasley has a choice to make, as we all do…Are we gonna live our lives playing games and being bored. Waiting for a judge to say you can now play, have meaning and purpose in your life.
Well, the Good News is the Judge has ruled!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 ESV
The greatest gift you could ever receive is Eternal Life! Thanks to Jesus. Now all you have to do is choose wisely. Merry Christmas.
