Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Who wants to be a millionaire?" he asked.
And we were game.
Who wouldn't want to win at trivia?
But even Regis knew deep down
that riches can't buy life
when comes that day when we must say "See ya!"

No! Phone-a-friend won't do the trick
no matter who you know.
Sweet Kathie Lee or Kelly won't suffice.
When we must stand before the Lord
and brace for what's in store,
our final answer can't be "I was nice!"

For Regis (or for anyone)
the rules are all the same.
The only lifeline we can claim is grace.
The good we've done or our success
won't matter in the end.
It all comes down to Whom we have embraced.

Trivia? Oh, by no means.
This is the Gospel truth.
God's grace through faith is that by which we win.
The "Game of Life" continues on
beyond our final breath.
So use your lifeline now and trust in Him.

*Ephesians 2:8-9

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
