This totally amazes me everytime I hear a story like this. The new iPhone 5 comes out today, and people have been lined up overnight outside some of the stores just waiting to be the FIRST to get one. Some of the photos they showed on the AJC website showed people waiting in line to get the NEW iphone 5…and while they were sitting there waiting, they were playing on their CURRENT iphone 4! One news story said people in New York had been waiting in line since Monday!! In London, 1300 people were lined up! All this just to get a new iphone!
If I put out a news bulletin that I was going to open an office at a certain time, and everyone who came to it, I would share with them from God’s Word how they can know Jesus Christ personally and go to heaven when they die. And how if they give Him their lives, He would bring them the greatest peace and joy they could ever know. I bet there wouldn’t be more than 10 people (if that) waiting on the day my office opened.
People have always been so wrapped up in the things of this world. The entertainments, the pleasures, the latest gadgets, the most hyped products, the latest fads…etc. And yet in just a very short amount of time, these things people are wrapped up in will be gone, broken, lost, or forgotten.
Faith and trust in Jesus Christ will change people’s lives FOREVER! Plus, He has promised He will NEVER EVER leave us or forsake us! And, we get to go to Heaven when we die!!!
“For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe.” (Deut. 10:17) He is more awesome and amazing than you or I could EVER tell. Knowing Him personally is worth more than 10,000,000 iphones to me!
“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!” (Romans 11:33)
Seek after Him who’s value is more than we can ever imagine!
