Georges Best Decision 


The story of Naaman in the bible is well known. You can read it in 2 Kings Ch.5.
Naaman was a great man; honourable and a mighty man of valour. But he was a
leper. George Best, the famous footballer had the world at his feet. He had looks, talent,
fame and fortune. But he was an alcoholic.

George’s WORST decision must have been to take his first drink. If only he had
known and heeded the scripture.
“Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever
id deceived thereby, is not wise”. Proverbs Ch 20 V 1. George’s lifestyle had caught
up with him. He was very ill.

The day George was admitted to Cromwell Hospital, 26th September 2005, Radio
Bible Class Daily Bread reading was
“Be not deceived, God is not mocked,
for whatever a man sows, that he shall reap

Both Naaman and George were given the opportunity to make life-changing
decisions. God was working in both their lives. In Naaman
’s home he has a little
captive maid who told of the prophet Elisha in
Samaria who would be able to
help him. Naaman decided to seek out the prophet and then following his
Instructions he was healed of leprosy.

In the hospital God had Joyce, a Christian nurse, who read the Bible and
prayed with George at every opportunity. About three weeks before his death
George accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his own, personal Saviour, making

Without doubt the BEST decision of his life. In the words of Joyce,
he confessed with his mouth”

Romans Ch 10 V 9 “That if thou shalt
confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
 that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

George enjoyed many privileges as a celebrity. His status meant he was treated
like royalty on many occasions. However his place in heaven was gained when
he took his place as a sinner and not as George Best, world famous footballer.

All the family who had been at his bedside left for home on 26th November 2005, the
day after George had died. The Radio Bible Class Daily Bread reading for the day
1 Corinthians Ch. 15 vs. 56 & 57 “The sting of death is sin, but thanks be to God
who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

The little though with it was, we never have seen, nor heard, nor imagined
The wonderful future the Lord has prepared For those who will love and trust and
receive Him This glorious truth, he plainly declares.

On the 3rd December 2005, the day of George’s funeral, his sister got assurance
from God about where George was now. The Daily Reading was
This thy brother was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found.
” The story
of the prodigal son is found in
Luke Ch. 15 V 11-32

It is never too soon to come home to God. But you could leave it tool late. Dear friend
please do not put off salvation in the hope of a last minute conversion, you may not get
that chance.

Boast not thyself of tomorrow, for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”
Proverbs Ch 27 V 1

The above text is extracted directly from literature produced by Mr John McIntosh, 18 Killymuck Road, Kilrea, Northern Ireland, BT51 5UB. UK.

Behold now is the accepted time behold now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians Ch. 6 V 2

I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold
’d rather be His than have riches untold
’d rather have Jesus than houses or land
’d rather be led by His nail pierced hand.
’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause
d rather be faithful to His dear cause
’d rather have Jesus that world-wide fame
d rather be true to His holy name
