Have you ever been on a winning team? You know, the one that may have lost a few games during the season, but really nothing to be worried about and your team kept going on and on defeating in game after game.
How did that feel? Were you so proud to wear your jersey or uniform? Did you like it when people wanted a play by play of some of your hardest games? Which do you remember better, the easy wins or the tough ones?
Do you realize you get to choose to be on the winning team right now?
We know at the end of this, God will win.
It is as simple as that. Which is funny because usually we have to wait game after game throughout a long season to find out who the victor will be.
But in this, we know that God will win. We have to decide, are we going to be on His team?
The great thing is, you don't have tryouts, He takes you as you are. It doesn't matter how tall, how fast, how smart, how knowledgeable. He will train you throughout the season. He will give you plays and He will show you how to improve your game in whatever capacity you are playing.
He will give high fives when you have done well and pat you on the back or dry your tears when you lose or mess up.
And He will keep putting you back in, no matter what. No one sits the bench on His team, all play.
It won't matter how long or short our season is, or what position he chooses to play us at, if we are on His team, we win!
