The Prize Goes To…

Today’s the day for one lucky reader to jump for joy — Cheesecake Factory joy, that is! You heard me right. It’s time to announce the To-Die-For Giveaway winner. Help me congratulate her as she heads into some yummy territory this Mother’s Day weekend — congratulations, Robbie! Robbie is a fellow writer and blogger. When you get a chance, you might like to head on over and check out her Joy Dance blog.

We had fun here on the blog a couple of weeks ago sharing our favorite to-die-for desserts, but today I want us to think about a few to-die-for things we hear about in God’s Word. Just as you would savor bites of that delicious dessert, sit back and savor these slices of truth:

“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?… In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 6:1-2, 11)

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” (1 John 3:18)

“‘Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.'” (John 15:13)

“‘Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer…Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.'” (Revelation 2:10)

Even though just one of us walks away today with the Cheesecake Factory prize, we all have the opportunity to “press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called [us] heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13b-14)

Wha-duh-ya say? Let’s “run in such a way as to get the prize.” (1 Corinthians 9:24b)!
