“The Best Day of My Life”

Categories: Minister's Corner

I have heard many people say, “This Is the best day of my life!,” usually after a fun or exciting experience.  Some of the feelings come after an experience to Disney World, an important date, that first kiss, a graduation or wedding, a special gift like a car, a fun birthday party, and many other significant moments.  

I have some wonderful days in my life. My first date with Christie.  Our first kiss … by the way, she laughed after it happened.  Our wedding day.  The birth of my four biological children and the adoption of my three special gifts (Joe, Madden, and Mila) from God.  And many more.

What truly is the best day of your life?  A significant but temporary experience, or something greater that has an eternal benefit?  I believe you will agree that the best day of our lives is when we are saved by Jesus Christ and all other days (as good as they are) simply don’t compare.  

I remember the best day of my life was April 23, 1991.  That was the day that I gave my allegiance to Christ and was buried with Him in baptism to have my sins washed away by His precious blood.  It is a day I will never forget because Jesus gave to me what I did not deserve and could never earn on my own.  His grace is amazing.  There is no other day that will ever compare.

When you hear someone say, “This is the best day of my life!,” pause, reflect on your best day, and offer a prayer of thanksgiving for the salvation you enjoy in Jesus Christ. If you haven’t experienced the best day of your life yet, then decide today to obey and experience it!
