It all came down to a missed phone call.

Hulk Hogan, the famous wrestling star, missed a call from his agent about a possible endorsement deal. Now the story has shifted over the years, but basically, his agent had set up some potential sponsorship on some kitchen items. These companies felt a celebrity name on their product could rocket them to success. Hulk favored a meatball maker but the agent had another product in mind. So he rang up Hogan. But he never answered.

So the agent moved on to his next client to see if he wanted to put his name on a personal grilling machine. That client, ex-boxer George Forman, took the call and the offer. Currently 100 million George Foreman Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machines have now been sold worldwide. It is estimated that Forman has made over 500 million dollars from that deal, more than he made in his entire boxing career.

I bet the Hulk wishes he had answered his phone.

We don’t always see an opportunity for what it is. What may change our life might be seen initially as an annoyance or a hassle. We have different ideas about what is best. Yet later we can see how an opportunity slipped away.

Right now you have an opportunity to change your life for the better. You have access to ‘the unfathomable riches of Christ.’ He wants to put his name on YOU! The Gospel call is ringing out to all of us.

How are we going to respond? Ignore the call? Choose something else that won’t be as valuable? Or take the offer that grant far more than ever hope to have in this life?

Whatcha gonna to do Brother?
