“Don’t Miss His Offer”

“And throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus.” – Mark 10:50

Everyone has probably received those letters from Publisher’s Clearing House.

When I was young I filled out every single one of those suckers. I even ordered a few magazines.

Now, I take them and toss them in the recycle bin.

I know I’m not going to win.

There are millions of people who play and a few will win – I know that.

SOMEONE is going to open the front door and there will be a crew there with balloons and flowers and cameras and it will be grand!

BUT, it won’t be me – so at least I can be ahead by the cost of the stamp.

So many people approach God that way. They know He answers prayer – it just won’t be mine.

They know He heals – it just won’t be me.
They know He restores broken marriages – it just won’t be ours.
They know He does miracle after miracle – but it will ALWAYS be someone else.

We have to believe God CAN do miracles – we just don’t believe He WILL do them in our life.

Today in our scripture we meet a man who DID NOT feel that way. He was waiting for Jesus to come His way. He called out to Christ when he knew he was near. He threw off his cloak and ran to Jesus when He called for him.

He knew his chances were just as good as anyone else’s.

He knew if he could just get Jesus’ attention, his life would never be the same.

So are yours.

My prayer this week is that you will trust Christ with whatever burden you are under at this moment.
