Matthew 16:26 – “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”
I’m here to encourage you in this GO Movement. And I’m going to encourage you with not only my favorite verse, but my mother’s favorite verse, Matthew 16:26. She shared it over and over with me when I was a young man, “what would it profit a man to gain the whole world but forfeit his soul.” And I can tell you this, 28 years in the National Football League, I saw that. I saw guys get as much as you can get from a human standpoint; Super Bowls, all pro recognition, big paychecks, but they didn’t have the Lord in their heart. And at the end of the day, it was tragic. And I saw that over and over and over. And it just reminded me of what my mom always used to say, if you know the Lord, if you have God in your heart, then it doesn’t matter what you do, where you go, or what’s your profession is. But if you don’t have the Lord, you can have all of that stuff, and it’s not going to matter in the day.
So that’s the message we need to get out to people. You can do that. I encourage you to do that. Share that with people. We need to know the Lord. That’s, what’s going to turn our country around. That’s what’s going to get us going. So just be the Lord’s hand, be His feet, be His voice and share that with other people.
Let me pray for you as we go, Lord, I just thank you for all of these people who are part of your Kingdom and we need to not keep it to ourselves. We need to share it with others. I pray that you would give them the strength, the confidence, and the boldness to share what we know is the answer. Thank you. In Jesus name. Amen.
