CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT

Despite our position in the pews on a Sunday morning, Christianity is not a spectator sport. A former UCLA coach observed, “College football is often 40,000 people desperately in need of exercise watching 22 men desperately in need of a rest.” We need to stop being spectators and begin to take part in the Christian race (1 Cor. 9:24-27). We need to “run the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12:1). The apostle Paul also said that we should “war a good warfare” (1 Tim. 1:18). We must prepare to engage in the battle against the enemies of the cross. General Douglas MacArthur, the commander of the Pacific forces during World War II, once said, “In war there is no substitute for going all out to win the battle against sin.” Get off the bench and get into the game!

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
