TO LIVE IS CHRIST A STUDY OF THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS And the Winner Is…! Sometimes when the lottery gets so high that the news media begins announcing the amount, I start dreaming, ‘I could do this or that if I won the lottery.’ But, then I think, ‘Oh wait! I won’t win because I have never purchased a lottery ticket.’ I am not advocating buying lottery tickets. I am just saying that in order to win any contest, the first thing to do is enter. I am not a gambler. I love a ‘sure thing’ and the sure way to win is by placing our faith and trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord.
