Do you remember recess? Time spent outdoors playing tag, hide and seek, dodge ball (not so much anymore!), football, basketball, or soccer? Do you remember picking teams? Of course, the cool / athletic kids got picked first leaving the not so cool kids to be evenly dispersed.
Imagine if everyone were welcome to play regardless of coolness or athletic ability. Imagine when picking teams, we as kids, saw everyone for their gifts and talents not athletic abilities or coolness.
What if God only choose the cool and uber christians to be apart of his team. How many of us would be picked?
"I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide..."
While this verse comes for the Christmas story, I was reading it the other day and it hit me: "a joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide...".
You see, God sent his only son for all of us. Not just a select few. Not for Christians only. All are welcome to be apart of God's kingdom!
I'd like to leave you with a quote from the Global Leadership Summit by Bryan Lorttis: "The blessing of God is not to be hoarded."
Spread His good news to ALL!
Thanks and God Bless!
