One-Minute Devotionals reveal in a single sentence, underlying truth about specific Scripture.

To you they cried out and were saved; in you they trusted and were not put to shame.
Ps 22:5

4247.  Why explain what someone has decided to ignore?  JG

See it.
Game on

Live it.
I choose to believe the Holy Bible and place my eternal hope in Jesus Christ.  Some say the Bible is fake. They say the stories were created by master story-tellers. They say He is a man and not God's Son, even though I make Him LORD. They say I'm wasting my life and missing a life of pleasure without restraint, and all for a fairy tale.

Let's say they're right and I'm wrong.  We will all die you don't have to believe the Bible to know that's true. They've had fun (so they say) and think I haven't. There is no God, no eternal life and all I've done is miss out on what they call pleasure. I'm good with that.  But what if I'm right and they're wrong?  I've enjoyed life.  They're spent their self-centered lifestyle in frustration and anger.  But even if not, when this life is over they'll spend eternity wishing they were as "stupid" as me.

Pray it
Thank You, LORD, for confounding smart people and amazing simple people like me.
