(Spoiler Alert: If you haven't had a chance to watch the results show for American Idol on 4/15, don't read this post unless you want to know who was voted off.)
Wednesday's show: The Bottom Three were picked - Lil, Anoop and Matt. Lil & Anoop seem to be in the bottom a lot lately. Matt has only been twice. Who would be voted off the show?
First Anoop was sent to sit down. He was safe. It seemed to me that is must be Lil. Because if Lil was safe, I think it would have been better to send her to the chairs and everyone would be freaking to find out if it was Anoop or Matt. No, it HAD to be Lil. The judge, Simon, had said her song choices were wrong for weeks. It was Lil, I knew it.
Then they announced it. Matt was the lowest vote getter. He'd be going home. UNLESS, the judges saved him. They had one save to use the entire season. Matt sang, trying to earn the save. You could tell he was near tears. He wanted to be saved so much. Then Simon announced it, "It's good news." Simon told Matt the good news, he was saved! Tears poured down Matt's face.
The funny thing is Matt was already saved before the judges said anything. Because Matt Girard is a Christian.
Have you heard the good news? Like Matt, you have been saved too! The Judge, the only judge, God has determined that you can be saved. You don't have to sing to earn it...as a matter of fact there is nothing you can do to earn it. You simple have to believe that Jesus died on the cross for you, was raised from the dead, and make him the Lord of your life!
You too can cry tears of joy, like Matt Giraurd. You've been saved!
Acts 2:21 -- And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Acts 4:12 -- Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."
Romans 10:9 -- That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
