I always love to watch the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. The excitement is electrifying as the best of the world are gathered together in one place for one reason…
I am usually brought to tears at some point during the entrance of the different nation’s athletes onto the whole world’s stage.
At least at one point…in one moment of time…
The world stops hating and killing.
But, with all the things that are right with the Olympics…
With all the technologies present for the world to see….
With Mankind putting forth its best presentation of all it is….
SOMETHING ALWAYS GOES WRONG…SOMEWHERE!
Oh, you know…..
This year it was the lazy snowflake that refused to change into a ring…..
Reminds me of the sight in 2010 when one of the legs of the inside cauldron refused to raise.
It’s always somethin’…..
No matter how hard we try we seem to never hit the mark.
Perfection’s just not in the mix for mankind. No matter how hard we try…
SOMETHING ALWAYS GOES WRONG.
Doesn’t matter what country, what time of year…
at the WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT….OOPS!
Isn’t that the story of mankind?
We try, and we try, and yet….
Things just don’t go the way they’re supposed to.
AND WE ARE HELPLESS WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT…..
Because we are a flawed race.
BUT IT DIDN’T START OUT THAT WAY!
When we were made/designed by our Creator, WE WERE PERFECT!!!
But, that changed, didn’t it?
Whith all that we are and attempt to do, we are always at risk of failure.
Think about it…we are flawed, therefore our technology is bound to be flawed somewhere, sometimes.
Reminds me of another story of epic failure…… Does anybody remember Apollo 13? Now, here’s an epic example of a good thing gone bad. I’m all for space exploration. I believe we are designed with a desire to learn all we can, and there is a lot to learn in space. But it comes with a high price. Not just in dollars, but human life.
Human life sacrificed for the good of mankind……Now THAT sounds familiar…..
Imagine, if you will, one Man who was willing to die so the entire human race could live as it was originaslly designed to live. Ahem…
ETERNAL life, that is…life with no end.
One Man that was perfect.
One Man that DID NOT HAVE THE GENETIC PROBLEM THAT EVERY HUMAN HAS.
Because of this one Man, we have a chance…one shot at getting it right with the One who made us.
This genetic failure that the entire race has is called sin. It’s a disease, not a habit.
And God will not let it run rampant in the universe.
He made a way for mankind.
That way, is Jesus Christ.
Ask Him to be your Savior.
You don’t have to experience the epic failure of mankind.
But you can experience the EPIC ADVENTURE of Eternal Life with the One who created you!
