“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” Oscar Wilde
To compete for the best END RESULT that can be obtained is what we teach our athletes. Whether the final score shows a win or loss, the greatest impact is how they played the game.
LOSING WITH INTEGRITY IS FAR SUPERIOR TO WINNING WITHOUT IT.
As a favored disciple of Christ, Peter experienced an END RESULT that was far beyond what his well-known denial of Christ would seem to have produced. Christ used Peter as an integral part of building His church. This powerful first-generation evangelist offers these words of encouragement…
Though you have not seen him (Christ), you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the END RESULT of your faith, the salvation of your souls. I Peter 1:8 & 9
It has been said that ‘seeing is believing’…but this passage of scripture clearly shows us that in believing who Christ is without physically seeing Him brings about the desired END RESULT.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 N
Let’s chart our course for the END RESULT by setting aside our desire for immediate gratification and walk by faith in the unseen Christ. This, my friends, brings lasting joy while we are here and the forever return of an eternally saved soul…real riches and a fantastic offer!
Blessings…as you fix your eyes on Christ for the best END RESULT.
