As you may know, Superbowl tickets can cost over $10,000. One man paid $70,000 for a Superbowl ticket. But may I offer you God’s ticket to Heaven? You don’t have to pay for it, and that’s a good thing, because you could never afford to buy it! It’s free, but only because someone has already paid the ultimate price for it.

God loves you and not only wants you to have a fulfilling life on earth, He also wants you to live with Him in Heaven forever. He’s the one who offers you a paid-in-full ticket. No one wants to go to hell where there will be no joy and no pleasures whatsoever, and God doesn’t want anyone to go there either. The Bible says in 2 Peter 3:9 that God is “not willing that any should perish”.

But there is a problem with getting that free ticket. We have all done wrong—we have all sinned, haven’t we? God’s Word says in 1 John 1:8, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves”. Sin pollutes—it makes us unclean, unfit for God’s presence in that wonderful, perfect place called Heaven. Sin penalizes—it separates us from a sinless God. Romans 6:23 says, “for the wages of sin is death”.

My greatest challenge was here – my family, my church, my community, and our country. Most people have tried everything, but there was one missing ingredient: God. While it is easy to ‘fall off the wagon’, there is no such thing as falling off the wagon with God. There’s only the chance to be caught by Him.” Her name is Donna Richardson-Joyner.

You are cordially invited to join the family of God and to enjoy all its benefits for now and eternity. R.S.V.P.

Did you know that God has already sent a special invitation to you? He doesn’t require that you dress up to approach Him or turn over a new leaf to impress Him. You can come just as you are. Yet this is the most important invitation you will ever receive.

The Lord had His invitation placed in Isaiah 55:6: “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near”. Jesus Himself invites you in Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.

He is a professional boxer and politician who has won six world titles and is the first to win the lineal championship in four different weight classes. He was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America. He is also a three-time BWAA “Fighter of the Year”, winning the award in 2006, 2008, and 2009. Currently, he is the WBO Welterweight Champion. Aside from boxing, he has participated in acting, music recording, and politics. In May 2010, he was elected to the Philippine House of Representatives in the 15th Congress of the Philippines. Many believe that one day he will be president of the Philippines.

He says of the recent change in his life, “If I had died last year or in the last two years, I am sure I would’ve gone straight to Hell…My faith in God was there 100 percent but behind it, after prayers, I would still do evil things.” The change came about because of a dream that led him to give up gambling, alchohol and womanizing. He said, “I was in a beautiful forest when a bright light was shone upon me. A voice asked me, ‘Son why are you going away from me?’ I woke up crying. I remember I was crying in my dream and when I touched my pillow, it was wet.” After waking up, he looked through the Bible and found that God sometimes speaks to people in dreams. He said, “I told myself this dream is real and I have to change my life. The change came not just because I desired it, but because God changed me.” He goes on further to say, “Being a Christian means accepting Christ as your Savior, your God. That’s why you are called a ‘Christian.’ If you remove Christ, there’s only ‘IAN’ and that means ‘I am nothing.” His name is Manny Pacquiao (PAK-ee-ow).

GLMX #72: What Dr. King Said About the KING of Kings

When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was living, and even after he died, some people tried to discredit him by suggesting that Dr. King was not a true minister of the Gospel, and even that he did not have a genuine relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, but that he was just a mere social worker. However, from direct quotations from his lips, it seems as though he knew the KING of kings–Jesus Christ. Dr. King said:

From his personal testimony–In 1934, when a guest minister at Ebenezer made a strong pitch for the salvation of young souls, Martin Luther King, Jr. watched his sister rise to make the first profession of faith. Impulsively, as he later confessed, “I decided that I would not let her get ahead of me, so I was the next.

“Dr. King also said: “Bound by the chains of his own sin and finiteness, man needs a Saviour (Jesus Christ). Man cannot save himself, for man is not the measure of all things and humanity is not God.”

“Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight victoriously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit.”

“We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flaunt the central teachings of Jesus: brotherly love and the Golden Rule.”

“The church today is challenged to proclaim God’s Son, Jesus Christ, to be the hope of men in all of their complex personal and social problems.”

Dr. King made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. The question now, is, have you?
