John chapter 19, and verse 30: “So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, ‘It is finished,’ and bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”
In 1980, when a team of college hockey players beat the Soviet national team, we witnessed arguably the greatest victory in hockey history. It came to be known as the miracle on ice. Jim Craig, the USA goaltender, announced yesterday that he’s auctioning off all of the souvenirs from that game-all of his equipment and even his gold medal-for the sake of his children’s future. Supposedly, it’s worth about a million dollars.
It makes me wonder: Are we who have known the victory of the cross willing to do the same for those who are coming after us? Can we let just a few things that are precious to our hearts go, or are we going to keep the miracle on ice?
It’s time to pray.
