As I was dressing today, I found a pair of character socks in my sock draw with the inscription the "Game of Life." These socks took me back to my past as a little girl. My sisters and I spent many hours playing board games, and the one we played the most was the "Game of Life." With this game each player had a car with holes on the top to place pegs for chances in life we encountered as we traveled along the board’s road of life.
As a child playing the Game of Life was fun winning an imaginery spouse, compliant children, multiple houses including a summer home, amazing vacations, and bank accounts with six figure incomes. Playing the Game of Life as a child taking many chances for a life of plenty or a life of lack is just what it is - a game!
We live in a real world that is not one of chance, even though some may think life is a game of chance. One chance we don’t want to play with is eternal life. When asked the question, "if you die tonight, where will you spent eternity? What would be your answer be?" I asked this question to an 89 year old and she said "I don't know, I have some doubts!" I asked about her doubts, but she refused to tell me! I shared with her what Jesus did on the Cross by shedding His blood for mankind and taking all our sins on His body to redeem us from the penalty of our sins. This act of love offers salvation to whosoever will believe in Jesus and His redemption work on the Cross.
Did this 89-year old accept Jesus as her Savior? No, but the seed was planted. Friends, we aren't promised a tomorrow, and life on earth is very short, so don't play the "Game of Life" with your life. If you die tonight, where will you spend eternity? Heaven or hell? If you have doubts, you can erase those doubts by praying the sinner’s prayer below and be certain of your eternity.
What Must I Do To Be Saved? Believe in Jesus and pray the "sinner's prayer" (Romans 10:9-10):
Dear Jesus, I come to you today as a lost sinner. I am asking that you save my soul and cleanse me from all sin. I know that I need help and that I can't save myself.
I believe that you are the Son of God. Forgive me for my sins and all wrong doings I have done to others and help me to forgive those who have hurt me. I believe that you died on the Cross for my sins and the sins of the world. I accept You, Jesus, into my heart as my Lord and Savior.
I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus, as my Savior and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead and You are now seated in Heaven.
You are now a "new creature in Christ and a child of God!" Now share the "good news" by telling someone else about your salvation.
