I watched part of the Indianapolis 500 yesterday. And some guy won. Emilio something or other. But the back story on the guy is apparently he was in court a few weeks ago and was found not guilty on tax evasion charges. Had he lost that case, he would not have been in that race, nor would he have been in the winners circle. He would have been in jail. From a moment of pending incarceration to a moment of triumph before millions and winning who knows how much money.
These story reminds me so much of what the Bible reveals to us – that Jesus gives us acquital through the cross and allows us to triumph. Where would I be without Christ? I don’t want to know.
