Jesus Saves the Best for Last

Jesus Saves the Best for Last 

“But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.” – 1 Corinthians 12:31

Satan always gives the best first and the worst last. For example, Proverbs chapter 20 verse 17 says, “The bread of deceit is sweet, but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.”  With Satan, it always starts sweet, but it does not end that way.

Satan is a counterfeiter and a deceiver, and he is guilty of false advertising. He doesn’t show the drunkard in the gutter covered with flies. He doesn’t show the addict shaking uncontrollably from another night of detox. He doesn’t show the ruined lives from sexually transmitted diseases. He always gives the best first and the worst last. Jesus gives the best last.

Do you have a teenager in your home? Then call a homeless shelter or prison to see if you can bring your teen for a tour.
