Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
Remembering Regis Philbin

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
August 7, 2020

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
