The hope of lasting change
July 8, 2010
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…
Most of us know the name of the legendary football player and sportscaster Pat Summerall. For all practical purposes, Pat was the voice of the NFL for more than 20 years.
But what you may not know is that Pat is a recovering alcoholic. He writes about this in his book called My Life On and Off the Air. Pat had a major alcohol problem that resulted in a hedonistic lifestyle.
When his daughter confronted him with the shame she felt because of his drinking, Pat said he knew he needed help. So he entered the Betty Ford Clinic where he learned to overcome his addiction, but he also began to read the Bible. And he soon found that "missing ingredient" he had been trying to find. He found his Savior!
Jesus came and filled the void that Pat had tried to fill with alcohol. In his book he says, "Now I revel in the redeeming grace that God has bestowed upon me."
Look at that! A 60-plus-year-old man became a completely new creation in Jesus Christ!
Do you need a new start? You can have one! It's never too late for a new beginning!
This is the message of hope the world is dying to hear. Tell the people in your life… Jesus can change your life!
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE FOR A NEW BEGINNING!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
