Everybody Can Win

Read: Hebrews 8

Years ago, a TV game show called “Let’s Make A Deal” asked contestants to make series of choices in hopes of ending up with the best possible prize. Over and over, contestants had to decide: Do I want to keep what’s in the box? Or, do I want trade it for the prize behind door No. 2? Or should I take the cash in the host’s hand?

Audience members dressed in crazy outfits tried to grab the host’s attention. Everybody wanted a chance to participate and have a shot at winning. Some even drove away in a new car.

The world we live in works hard to teach us that for every winner there has to be a loser, sometimes more than one. For every big winner, there might have to be a whole lot of losers. Maybe we believe we won’t even get a chance to be a winner. Maybe fear of losing keeps us on the sidelines in life seemingly safe from losing, but also locked out of winning.

The good news is that God’s plan works by different rules than what we see in this world. Hebrews 8:6 teaches that “... the ministry Jesus has received is ... superior to the old one...” God replaced His first plan for His people with a new plan built on “better promises.” The new plan was, and is, Jesus. How is the new plan better? There doesn’t have to be any losers. Nobody is excluded from the opportunity to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Everybody can win.

Reflect:

  • Has there ever been a time when you asked Jesus into your life? Take some time today to thank Jesus for your salvation. If you’ve never committed to following Jesus, learn more about salvation here, or email us at hello@newspring.cc
  • Have you ever felt like you were going to great lengths to compete for God’s attention? How does it feel to know that in God’s kingdom we can all be winners?
