The Best it's Ever Been....and it's Only Getting Better!

"You have saved the best for now." (John 2:10)

Bill McCartney, former coach of the University Colorado Football team and Founder of Promise Keepers, the dynamic men's ministry that swept the Nation throughout the nineties and started a revolution, would often say -- "Good, better, best; never let it rest until your good is your better, and your better is your best."

Most people will content themselves with what is good. Fewer people will not settle until it's better. But the rare souls among us are those who press only for the best. Which are you?

George Morrison wrote, "Take man apart from God and always it is the worse which follows; but take God in any of His thousand energies, and always the best is kept until the end."

Two paths are set before each soul -- one leads to that which is ever worse than before, and the other to that which is always better. Which path are you on?

Sometimes the path leading to that which is best passes through some of the worst stuff you can imagine. And on the other hand, one may be cruising merrily along in life without God, supposing there is no end to their delights -- not knowing that the path is about to take an abrupt sharp downturn, from which there will be no recovery.

The words, "You have saved the best for now", were spoken to Jesus. He is the only one who has the power to bring our lives to that place where things are the best they've ever been -- and only getting better.

Is He at work in your life?
