Making the cut…

Today in Shreveport, 10 professional fishermen*  are fishing for a $500,000 first prize. But before they could do that, they had to be at the top of a 46-man field at the end of three days.  Before that, they fished all year in tournaments against thousands of others to even make it here.  It’s an uphill battle. A fight against the odds.   But they made the cut!

Thankfully,  God doesn’t just take the Top Ten. He doesn’t require us “make the cut” by besting everyone else in a competition to see who deserves it. Here’s the personal decision he asks a person to make:

I acknowledge I am a sinner in need of a Savior – this is to repent or turn away from sin;  I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead – this is to trust that Jesus paid the full penalty for my sins; I confess Jesus as my Lord and my God – this is to surrender control of my life to Jesus;  and I receive Jesus as my Savior forever – this is to accept that God has done for me and in me what He promised.

John 3:16:  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
