The Powerball drawing is at the largest jackpot ever, $1,500,000,000. That is a lot of 0’s.
But just in case you did not know if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior, you have already won the biggest jackpot. Your reward from God has many more 0’s than that.
ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD !!!!
Jesus is coming back one day – no one knows when – not even the angels.
Mark 13:32 (NIV) “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
But I know Jesus is coming back one day, because He tells us in the Bible.
Matthew 16:27 (NIV) For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
Revelation 1:3 (NIV) Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
We will walk with Him in glory on the streets of gold.
Revelation 21:21 (NIV) The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.
Can you imagine what a beautiful and glorious place that will be?
What we have here is nothing and is worth nothing compared to what we will have when Jesus comes back. What we have now can be destroyed.
Matthew 6:19-20 (NIV) Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
It’s okay to have a nice home, nice clothes, nice vehicles but these things will be destroyed one day. Each of us need to make sure we are also storing up for ourselves what can not be destroyed.
Now I will be honest, I have purchased a lottery ticket. I have to remind myself though to not dwell on that. I have to remind myself that everything money buys here, will be gone one day.
If I do happen to win the lottery, I pray I will Praise My Father first. I then pray I will think about others and helping others. I pray I will use the money to further God’s Kingdom.
But guess what, even if I don’t win I’m going to continue to do those things. Think about others, help others, and further God’s Kingdom because that is what God put me here to do.
I am God’s. He made me. He blesses me. He loves me.
