James is my oldest grandson. He’s a very sweet, well-mannered, and exceedingly active little boy. For many years now, he has worked hard to learn the art of baseball. With many trials and errors, he is undaunted in reaching his goal. We as Christians could learn from this seven year old child.
When James misses the ball, he runs hard, then hurriedly throws it back into the game. If we miss God’s call or voice, do we hurriedly seek the Lord, ask for forgiveness, and then leave the mishap behind.
Paul wrote, “But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil 3: 13 -14
John wrote, “For Everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. 1 John 5:4.
Like James, if you persevere in Christ Jesus, you can, will, and shall have victory!!!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13
