It came down to a single moment

A single moment.  A microsecond.  That's what it came down to on Sunday afternoon.

In that moment, a piece of metal struck polymer and it changed a life.

If you're not quite sure what I'm talking about, here you go.

Jim Nantz said it:  "A life-changer."  Indeed.  Adam Scott is now some $1.2M richer.  He also has a Master's jacket and has now won a major on the PGA tour.  It's hard not to root for the guy.  He basically choked last year at the British Open and then handled it with class.

But it all came down to a single moment.  If his putter hadn't struck the ball just so, who knows what would've happened?  But it did.  It went right in.  A Life-Changer.

I love life-changing moments.  I sappily and tearily watch every stinking video of soldiers coming home to their kids and spouses.  Every one of them.  And I tear up at every one.  I love life-changing moments.

And thus the purpose of this post.  There was another moment on another day on another continent.  A transaction happened where what was mine was laid on Jesus and what was His was credited to me.  That single moment when He said, "It is finished," could have easily been, "A life-changer."  The transaction was done.  Forgiveness is purchased.  Grace is lavished.  Love is displayed.  Life is forever changed.

But that's just me thinking thoughts...
