What a crazy idea…get unsuspecting folks in a cab and shock them with a surprise chance to win money.
My mom was watching this program, enjoying it to the max. And I wonder what the thrill is. Is it the surprise element? The fact they took a simple, ordinary activity of taking a cab and turned it into an exciting adventure? Or is it simply the potential to gain cash that stirs excitement?
I'd love to ride in a cab, answer questions the correct way, and relish with the winnings. I have a suspicion I’ll have that very chance. Only it won’t be a cab driver, but Christ who will search for answers. The one decisive question will be, “Did you know me?”
That’s when we’ll all inhale deep and do a fast rewind of our life to answer correctly. We’d be wise to take note of His expectations. In the book of Matthew. He says it plainly: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”
God is merciful, but direct. He shows the way but is also patient. He’s compassionate but also rebukes disobedience. He’s all powerful yet tenderhearted to those with a contrite heart. Most know all these characteristics…but do we know Him?
I’m still in the process …praying you are too.
