“The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own people did not receive Him. But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:9-14
Several years ago, H&R Block offered walk-in customers a chance to enter a drawing to win a million dollars. A New Jersey couple, Glen and Gloria Sims won the drawing, but they refused to believe it when an H&R Block representative phoned them with the good news.
With each additional contact from H&R Block, the Sims hung up the phone and threw away their mailed notices. After some weeks, H&R Block made one final call to let the Sims know that the deadline for accepting the million-dollar prize was nearing and that the story of their refusal to accept the prize would soon appear on the NBC “Today Show.”
At that point, Mr. Sims finally decided to investigate further. Just a few days later he appeared on television to claim the million-dollar prize. Mr. Sims said, “H&R Block explained to us they really wanted a happy ending to all this, and they were ecstatic that we finally accepted the prize.”
God offers each of us something infinitely greater than a million dollars. He offers eternal life and the right to become His child to everyone who will receive His Son, Jesus Christ. You only need to call out to Him and accept His gift. Have you received God’s gift? He is calling; don’t refuse to accept His call!
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
