Basic (eternal) Math – February 7, 2020

downloadmathingGeorge Beverly Shea made famous the hymn “I’d Rather have Jesus than silver and gold.”  I heard it playing just a few minutes ago and realized that, while it expressed a great mind-set for a Christian, it also sort of skipped over an important point.   The truth is, if one doesn’t have Jesus, one has nothing at all.  Let me see if I can illustrate it:

(Fame + Fortune or Poverty + Obscurity) – Jesus = Eternity in Hell                  (Fame + Fortune or Poverty + Obscurity) + Jesus = Eternity in Heaven

He’s the most important thing and transmitting His saving message is one of our greatest privileges!  Consider every opportunity God brings your way this month; including asking your server if you might pray for him or her!
