. Many people are in mourning over the death of boxing great Cassius Clay, better known as Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali had many accomplishments in this life. In the Olympics and in the professional ring. His rewards were riches & fame here on earth. But now he is gone, never to fight again, never to love again, and most importantly, no more chances to find life. I also mourn. But not for the loss of an American Icon, but because of what he didn't have. Muhammad Ali chose (freewill) to serve a false god. Denying the Cross of Christ and forfeiting eternal life. A much greater reward than any of his accomplishments as a boxer could ever hope to give. Truth is he could have had both, but which is most important? And it was a free gift. He didn't have to earn it, work for it, or train for it. Just accept and ask Jesus into his heart and acknowledge Christ as his Savior. So while the world mourns a fallen Icon, believers mourn a lost soul. I would like to say, "may he rest in peace," but I know it's too late. And I know there is no peace without Jesus in your heart. I urge all to seek eternal rewards and not temporary ones!
