There is a race or a spiritual football game we are playing in life. Our present life has to make a difference for the Kingdom of God. I don't do things for God so I can have a relationship for Him. I have a relationship with Him so I am compelled to share His message with others.
Philippians 3:12-15 It's not that I've already reached the goal or have already completed the course. But I run to win that which Jesus Christ has already won for me. (13) Brothers and sisters, I can't consider myself a winner yet. This is what I do: I don't look back, I lengthen my stride, and (14) I run straight toward the goal to win the prize that God's heavenly call offers in Christ Jesus. (15) Whoever has a mature faith should think this way. And if you think differently, God will show you how to think.
Too many Christians are sitting on the side lines in their faith. They watch all the players running up and down the field and making all the field goals while they sit and watch. Being a believer is NOT A SPECTATOR'S sport. Paul the apostle said there is a goal we must all reach in our life on this planet. WHOEVER HAS A MATURE FAITH thinks this way. How powerful is that? Don't get me wrong there are times where we have to sit on the side lines to rest and regain our strength but to camp there is not God's will.We are called to something much better than this. I want to encourage you. Get your head back into the game. Get back on the field. Go bust some devils heads open. Drop kick them in the face and make a field goal for Jesus. Do the wiggle dance at the goal post and make Daddy proud. He loves to watch us play. Play with passion and out of your love for Him. Win because you are already a winner through Christ.
