Weekly Devotional 

September 10-16

No Competition In Winning Souls

Scripture: I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” Luke 15:7

Devotional: “Are you ready for some football?”  We are all familiar with the theme song of Monday Night Football as the NFL season kicks off this week and personally, it is one of my favorite times of the year.  I enjoy the excitement and the pageantry that comes with watching America’s greatest pastime.  As much as I enjoy the games, and remember, it is just a game, nothing compares to someone giving their life to the Lord Jesus Christ.  In fact, Heaven rejoices if just one repents than ninety-nine of us who are in Christ!  So, as we prepare to cheer for our favorite NFL team, remember you are on The Greatest Team with the Owner, President, General Manager, Coach, and Quarterback in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; that worth you and I getting excited when someone joins our team, Team Christian!!!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for choosing us as your children and being a part of your family!  Let us never take that for granted and fill our hearts with joy and excitement when someone gives their life to Jesus Christ and encourages us to be bold witnesses as we share the goodness and graciousness of Him with those who will come our way in His name we pray, Amen and Amen!!!   

Reflection Question: Are you more excited about the NFL season starting or someone coming down the aisle this Sunday?
