Final Jeopardy

My family loves watching Jeopardy.  We’ve been watching the Teen Tournament this past week, and love that even more because the questions are easier, and sometimes we even get one right!

This reminds me of the movie, “Running Scared.”  Billy Crystal stars in it, and my husband and I frequently quote from it.  Billy’s on this ancient car phone (hilarious) pretending to be the informant, “Pinky.”  While talking he interrupts himself and in this high little voice disappointingly says, “Oh no!  I’m watching the new Jeopardy and a man missed a Bible question because he did not know what Deuteronomy was!”  When he’s done talking he says, “Oh! Gotta go, Final Jeopardy’s on.”

Just like Jeopardy, some people are always asking the questions, and they take pride in their knowledge…but they never win the game, because “they did not know what Deuteronomy was.”

I have one for you under the Bible category. The answer is “Unbelievers” and the question is,    “What is, ‘…they are always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth?'” 2 Tim 3:7

If you think about it, this life is like the game of Jeopardy.  The Old Testament represents the first round of Jeopardy.  The New Testament represents Double Jeopardy, and the period we now live in is Final Jeopardy.  Do you know the question?  Better yet, do you know the answer?  I can hear the Jeopardy Think music counting down right now.  He who has ears let him hear.

 

Jesus, you bring people into our path everyday.  Seekers are usually the ones asking questions, but not always.  Sometimes we are just casting pearls into pig pens.  As God’s Children it’s not necessarily our job to answer the questions, but to introduce them to the One who can answer them.  If we’ve done that, then we’ve done our job.  Not only are you my salvation, Jesus, you are my very life and the ultimate question (Who is Jesus?) to everyone’s Final Jeopardy answer (What life is all about!)  May I breathe you, Jesus, and you alone, Amen

About lifevine

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
