And who doesn’t love hearing the competitive styles of sportscasters crying out:

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!!!!!!

And the winning nation gets the World Cup Trophy itself –

But — even the winner doesn’t keep the trophy forever. It gets forfeited to the victor at the NEXT World Cup.

What if there was a Cup that everyone could keep? A Cup for Argentina and Brazil and Belgium and the U.S. and Italy and England?

There is — and it has to do with the GREATEST SAVE in history!

At a special dinner nearly 2000 years ago,[ 1 ] someone presented a cup to the world.

“This cup is the token of God’s new agreement to save you—an agreement sealed with the blood I shall pour out to purchase back your souls. (Luke 22:20)[ 2 ]

It was Jesus who said this. The new agreement was God’s contract with all of us so that he could save us and take the penalty for our sins! And not just the sins of the U.S., Germany, Sweden, etc., but the sins of the whole world!

He (Jesus, Yeshua, Gesù, Jésus, Isa) is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. (1 John 2:2)

Join the game and participate in the greatest save of all time. Then you’ll win the ultimate World Cup!

I will lift up  the cup of salvation and  call on the name of the Lord.” (Psalm 116:13).
