"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."
-Luke 19:10 (KJV)
The NFL Draft is coming up in April. This year, the experts say that the number one pick will be either Arkansas' Darren McFadden or LSU’s Glenn Dorsey. Could you imagine being the number one pick? Well, surprise… You are!
You are a top recruit! God is recruiting you for His team, but the enemy is trying his best to keep you from joining "TEAM JESUS." Psalm 51:5 says that we were born in sin and shaped in iniquity (or evil). That means that we have to make a decision to join God's team. If we leave this world without accepting Christ, we cannot enter His Kingdom.
The Bible tells us that God wants us to be a part of that Kingdom. He has our jersey and our hat, and He is waiting for us to shake His hand and accept the terms of His contract. He's recruiting each of us (Luke 19:10). We are all His top picks. YOU are His top pick! God, our “Coach,” had plans for you before you were born (Jeremiah 1:5, 29:11). And once you give your life to Christ and join His team, you can live knowing that you will win in the end. You may lose an inning or quarter, but you will win the game!
Today, live like you are that top pick. Represent your Team well!
1. Are you a part of "Team Jesus"?
2. If you are, are you actively helping God in the recruiting process?
3. Are your actions a recruiting tool for Team Jesus or for the other team?
