Attending an American Football game is a cultural experience. After 19 years of living in America (after being brought up with Aussie Rules, Rugby League and Cricket in my home country of Australia), I am finally starting to understand the game! Ive enclosed a picture of a section of the 65,000 people in the stadium (the Cincinnati city skyline in the background) and one of myself and daughter Danielle dressed for the occasion!
As I looked around at the sellout crowd, I thought, "Wouldn't it be fantastic to see that many attend a creation seminar!?" And as I looked over all the people, it is sobering to realize that in 100 years time, most likely not one of the 65,000 there today will still be alive on planet Earth. Even though its exciting and fun to be at such a game, what a reminder to me that this means nothing whatsoever compared to the eternal importance of one's salvation in Christ. Just another reminder to me that at Answers in Genesis, we need to "keep on keeping on" getting out the most important message in the universe---the message of the authority of the Word of God and the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
Even if we never get 65,000 at a stadium for a seminar, the more we distribute books and DVDs, publish articles on the AiG website, speak in auditoriums around the world, complete the Creation Museum---the more the Lord will enable us to reach millions for Him---which is the most important task in the world. A football game lasts a few hours---but eternity lasts............!
Have a blessed Christmas---and remember the greatest gift of all as you give and receive presents---the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus, the one who stepped into history to be the "babe in a manger" to provide the way of salvation for sinners such as you and I.
Ephesians 2:8: For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Romans 10:9: that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Thanks for stopping by---and please keep praying for AiG,
