He is a professional golfer who won the 2012 Masters Tournament. He is one of the few players who can hit a ball over 350 yards capable of generating a ball speed up to 194 miles per hour. His Masters win elevated him to a career high number four in the Official World Golf Ranking. He has also won the Travelers Championship in 2010, the Farmer’s Insurance Open in 2011 and the Zurich Classic in 2011.
He says of his faith, ‘I grew up in Bagdad, Florida, as one of the good guys: “Didn’t cuss, didn’t cheat, didn’t steal, didn’t lie, didn’t drink, didn’t do drugs…I was doing the right things but I didn’t know what that meant.” In his senior year in high school, two twin neighbor girls invited him to their youth group. He went and found a place where he belonged. He said, “The girls asked me to go to church, and after a few times going I realized this is what I wanted to do. This is truth here. And I gave myself to the Lord.” Though he never took a golf lesson in his life, he said “I am grateful for the people around me and the opportunity to live my life for Christ. I’ve really got a good team around me trying to help me succeed, not just in golf, but off the golf course, to be a light for Jesus.” He frequently uses his Twitter account to share Christ with his followers. He said, “For me, it’s just showing the Light. There’s people who want to put down Christians. I try to tell them Jesus loves you.” His name is Bubba Watson.
This is the “Chief of Sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, and just as Bubba Watson gave his life to Christ, may I encourage you to do the same. Here is how:
John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
“For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you. No matter what you have done.
“that He gave His only begotten Son.” His name is Jesus Christ. He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.
“that whosoever believeth in Him”, the word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.
“should not perish” where? in hell.
“but have everlasting life” in Heaven with God.
The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
Remember, friend, Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith!
