Glory and honor. This is what awaits those who win the World Cup. Pride and bragging rights are what the winning country earns.
How long, however, will it last? Who really remembers who won the 2006 and 2002 world cups, let alone the world cups from 20-30 years ago? Don't get me wrong. I love watching the games and cheered like crazy during the 2002 world cup game where South Korea sadly lost against Turkey and ended up in 4th place. Nonetheless, these games don't bring about any lasting changes.
Who are the real heroes in your life? Who really deserves the place of glory and honor? There is only one person that I believe deserves this title for all eternity - Jesus Christ. We should be talking about the great things that Jesus has done for our lives, how has has changed us and gave us life.
This is exactly what Jesus' disciples did at Pentecost. They shared the most exciting news to all nations - that Christ was alive and we could be alive forever with Him. That news was shared more than 2,000 years ago and continues today. Max Lucado challenges us to also "outlive our lives" in his daily 1:00 UpWords® program as well as in his new book.
What are we waiting for? Let's all be die hard fans for Jesus! Make sure you listen to UpWords® if you need some inspiration in July as Max shares about "Jesus' Choices" and "Life's Demands."
We Connect. Ministry and Media
P.s. One way Max is making it easier for you to be a fan for Jesus is by inviting you to join him on his "Make A Difference Tour." See if Max and his friends (Michael W. Smith, Toby Mac and Third Day) are coming near you!
