Childhood Memory – Whose Team Are You On? Part 2
In yesterday’s blog, we started to talk about being on the right team. Our story began with my sharing a memory of when I was a child. I remember the days of staring out the front window at everyone playing and laughing. I had been punished for something I did.
Do you remember me asking you what team you played on?
It brought to my mind another thing to consider.
When we play on the right team, the rewards are too numerous to list. On Jesus’ team, I can spend all my time telling other people about him, and it never gets old or boring. I can tell other people how wonderful Jesus is in my life.
I can share with others all the things Jesus has done for me and the way Jesus has changed my life. It’s fascinating stuff, and I never get tired of telling people about my coach and the team I’m on.
What others say about Jesus’ team.
Oh sure, Jesus’ team gets negatively written up in the papers, even talked about on TV and the internet, but I’ve always heard if they aren’t talking about you, then you aren’t doing anything extraordinary worth mentioning. I don’t know how true that is, but as long as Jesus Christ is my Savior, I’m going to keep spreading the Word.
The way I see it, it can only bring good, and based on what I have experienced so far, God has kept his promises to me, and it’s been better than good, it’s been “GREATTTT!!!!.”
Thanks, Lord, I appreciate all you have done for me. I’m thankful I can share the gospel with other people. Lord, I want so much for others to get to know you on a more intimate level. I want so much for others to see things happening and know you’re behind it. Lord, you know I stink at being patient. If I want this so much, I can’t imagine how you feel wanting it for all your children around the world today and every day. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
