The thing about sport is that until the final whistle blows, no one can know what the final score will be.
What’s so good about the gospel is that the umpire who is never wrong is Jesus. And Jesus has announced the score already of your salvation. God: 1, the Devil: 0.
Jesus blew the final whistle when he announced, “It is finished” (John 19:30).
We can kick or throw the ball all we like, but we won’t change the score that Jesus achieved. It’s a winning score.
We can accept the winning score Jesus achieved for us, or we can try to work out our own. But if we do that we will always lose.
The greatest struggle we will have in our Christian lives will be to recognise that if we have accepted Jesus, then the work for our salvation is finished. All we can do is enjoy the victory.
Accept Jesus’ winning score today. Whatever other issues you may face are going to be a lot more bearable. Christ guarantees it!
