It doesn’t matter how much money you have or how powerful you are in this world, if you don’t know Jesus, you will lose.

The Bible says in Philippians 3:8 (amplified) “Yes, furthermore I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, and of progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him (of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly). For His sake I have lost everything and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs) in order that I may win (gain) Christ (the Anointed One).”

In other words, if you gain the whole world and lose your soul to hell for eternity, what have you gained? 2 Timothy 4:7-8: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course (race) I have kept the faith; (8) Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge shall give me at that day: and not to me only but unto all them also that love his appearing.”

Just as in football we all are running the race of life. Choose to be on the winning team. Jesus loves you.
