This is Scott Downard . OH NO!!!!!! He missed out because he was never signed up!

Scott Downard was stripped of his title in this weekend’s Cowtown Marathon because of paperwork, or, more specifically, a lack of paperwork.

The 25-year-old won the Cowtown Marathon in Fort Worth, Tex. on Sunday but was disqualified when he crossed the finish line because he never registered for the race.

1 Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Make sure you sign in

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

You didn’t just surf into this blog by chance today…it’s for a purpose.  There is some good news in the scripture above.  You can get into heaven…if you sign up for the race to get there.  How do you sign up?  Repent of the sinful things you’ve done and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and commit and submit your life to Him.  You must be born again…born again into a new life with Jesus Christ.

John 3:3-7 In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”

Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.”

Whoever you are reading this…I want to tell you…..You only get one chance to get this right because once you die there is no getting a second chance…it will be too late.  So this is the time to really think about the good news that you read in this blog today.  Explore the truth for yourself.  Ask questions…read…and study the facts.  If you look for the truth you will find it.  Make sure you are signed up for the race…and the right race.  Your eternal future depends on it!

I searched for the truth for years and I know in my heart of hearts I found it because of this incredible peace I have.  God has revealed Himself to me in a way that I know the truth and I believe the truth.  I believe in Jesus Christ.  I’m signed up.  How sad it would be like the poor guy in the true story above to find out you were not signed up…and you lost out?

Oh yeah... hell is so real...it's not a myth...evil is real and it came from somewhere ...you've made it this far in life...there is a real prize...and that is Jesus Christ who promises...eternal life with Him. That means a great place to live forever and you will never suffer from anything in your life ever again. Hell or heaven...the choice is yours to make now...while you are...alive.

I want to see you there!...finishing the race!
