Gain What You Cannot Lose

BIBLE MEDITATION
“And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?” 2 Kings 7:3

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT
Jim Elliot, martyred missionary to the Aucas in Ecuador, wrote in the flyleaf of his Bible, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” He’s talking about giving his life for Christ and the gospel.

I’ll tell you, in these days the most dangerous thing you can do is to play it safe. You are safer out on the waves with Jesus Christ than you are in the boat without Him. These are desperate days, and we need to live like it.

ACTION POINT
You’re going to die anyway. By coming to Jesus, you’ve got everything to gain; you haven’t got anything to lose. Why sit we here till we die? You can’t save your life. You’re not going to get out of it alive, so you might as well invest it in something important.
