Spiritual Success

Lou Holtz, a former South Carolina football coach, once described his team by saying they reminded him of the Kamikaze pilot who flew 50 missions: involved, but not committed.

Holtz says a lot of players get involved, but only time would tell if they are really committed to the cause for the good of the team. Only when players are committed can a team be a success.

On a team, in the office, in our homes, and in our churches, some people are involved, but never get committed to get the job done, no matter what it takes.

I’m thankful that God was so committed to us that He gave His very best – His Son Jesus Christ – to die on the cross for our sins. He deserves nothing less than all of who we are. Only by complete commitment to Jesus can we have real spiritual success.

The Bible says: “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

You need to realize all the blessing the Lord has provided for you. The first and most important thing God ever did for you is send His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for you. That alone is enough for you to serve Him with joy until you reach heaven.

Have a great day and keep moving forward!
