The Biggest Gamble of All November 10, 2017

Someone rocked a boat to see if it would tip. It did. Someone smelled escaping gas and lit a piece of oily waste to find the leak. He found it. Someone lived all his life laughing at the gospel and rejecting Christ to see if there really is a hereafter. There was. In each of these cases, those involved were taking a chance, gambling. They lost. We may never buy lotto tickets, never visit casinos, never gamble. But if we are leaving Christ out of our lives, staking everything on the idea that the hereafter and the need of what Jesus called the new birth are merely fables, we are taking the biggest gamble of time and eternity. We will lose. We are betting against Christ Himself, who asked the rhetorical question, “What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his own soul.” We all know the answer to that don’t we.
