Deal Or No Deal

Continued From >The Gospel Of Jesus

Howie Mandel has a show on TV called Deal or no Deal. You pick a brief case at the beginning of the show with the hope that at the end of the game, or the rounds of this game, you have picked the right one , and win the big prize.
cross of christ, resurrection of christ

The game is a game of change where you pick from 26 sealed brief cases ranging from one cent to millions of dollars. The game continues as you pick from the remaining 25 brief cases, The game has a mysterious Banker that  temps you with various amounts of cash in the hope you will settle for lesser amount than the BIG prize you hopefully have in the briefcase you choose at the beginning of the game.

You continue to open new briefcases that have various amounts of cash or prices, than you receive the offer from the “The Banker” to accept an offer of money in exchange for what may be contained in the briefcase the contestant choose at the start of the show. The  game host Howie Mandel than asks the question “Deal or No Deal.”

Our life is like that game show, We are all participants in the game of life, we are all contestants, hoping our choices will win the best prices or rewards. Early in our life we have a bunch of choices–will I go to college or not, who will I marry, or in today’s society, who will I choose to live with, what kind of work do I want to do, what church should I go to.

Many times in this game of life you will give up some of your earlier choices in exchange for other choices. As we get older we realize life is short, and the choices we make can have a negative or positive effect on our future. You can be sure “The Banker” will temp us with many offers, so we lose our briefcase that we hope the Big Prize is  in.

In the briefcase we started with in this game of life,  is a set of beliefs we aquire during the rounds of our life on earth. Most of us hope we will get to heaven when our time on earth runs out. All of us know someday we will come to the that last round of our life, and than the big moment will happen– what do we have in have in our briefcase– is it the Big Prize?

What have you got in your briefcase–think with me now–take inventory–you say, I’ve been a  good person, I belong to a church, I give to my church and charity,  I believe in God, I’m a good husband/wife/father/mother, you say to your self I should be OK, I have done the best I could. –But what does God say about your life??

God says, “Isaiah 64:6 filthy rags. There is no salvation for one trusting in his own acts of righteousness to commend him to God, for such acts (without repentant faith in Christ’s death for our sins) are like (literally) “menstrous cloths” in the sight of a holy God. “Not by works of righteousness” are we saved, but only by “His mercy” (Titus 3:5).

Well we see according to the Bible good works won’t get us to heaven, how then can we get there?

Ephesians 2:8-10 (New International Version)

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 1For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Romans:1:16
“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.”

Romans 10:9

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

In the above verses of scripture the Bible tells us we need to realize there is no amount of good works, or in plain simple English-There is nothing we can do ourselves to earn our way into God’s Heaven–God’s already none everything that’s necessary for us to get there. He sent His Son, Jesus to die on a Cross to pay the penalty for our sins, and we need to repent of those sins and ask God to forgive us,and ask Jesus to come into our hearts.

Deal Or No Deal?–Only you can make the choice!
