The sporting world has suffered three big losses;
Mohammed Ali, Stephen Keshi and Kimbo Slice..
Reading tributes and watching playbacks of their lives as great sports men,
I am reminded of the brevity of life..
What is our life?
For we are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes
– James 4: 14. [ESV]
It is only in God that we continue to live, move and have our being.
For if he looks away from us for just one second, the race is over.
So, I’m wondering what the hustle and bustle is for?
Just like Solomon said, All is Vanity.
I guess by fixing my gaze on Jesus; the pioneer and perfecter of my faith,
I’ll get answers …. Hebrew 12: 12 tells me that Jesus endured the cross and its shame because of the joy that awaited Him. The Joy of sitting in the place of honour; at the right hand of the throne of God.
As a Christian, I know that the most important decision I ever made is giving my heart to Christ which determines where I’ll spend eternal life.
So while I’m here, I’ll let the Holy spirit guide me daily in the path of truth and in the way that I should go. Reminding me daily that there is a life after this. A life that never ends; eternal life.
Reminding me, that heaven awaits me and anyone who will believe in Him.
What about you?
