Pssst, buddy, want to buy a watch?
Some offers just seem too good to be true. At least that's what Glen and Gloria Sims, of Turnersville, New Jersey thought. Back in June they received a phone call informing them that they were the lucky recipients of a cool one million dollars. "Yeah, right!" was their response. In fact, H&R Block, the company awarding the prize, had to go to the media to help them convince Mr. And Mrs. Sims that they actually were the winners chosen randomly out of 17 million people.
Pssst, buddy, want to go to Heaven?
Some offers just seem too good to be true. At least that's what a lot of people think when they hear that the forgiveness of sins and receiving of eternal life is free through faith in Jesus Christ's death for them. For some reason, many have an easier time getting their minds around the lie that you can work your way to heaven. God has called Christians to go to such people and help sway them towards the truth that out of over 6 billion people on the planet, He loves them like they are the only one and has already paid the price for them.
Pssst, buddy, want to accomplish big things through God's power?
Some offers just seem too good to be true. At least that's what a lot of Christians think when they hear that God wants to bless them and use them to dynamically change the world and eternity for Him. For some reason, many believers would rather opt for a mediocre and safe, middle of the road walk with God (is there really such a thing?) instead of trying things that they can't do unless God empowers them. Such people need dynamic and faithful examples lived out by Christian leaders and brothers and sisters in Christ to inspire them to imitate and adopt a lifestyle of faith.
Buy the watch because time is short, believe in Christ because eternity is long, and attempt big things for God because He is faithful.
I know it sounds too good to be true - but it is.
