Bringing People Into The Caring Community Of Christ
April 22, 2015 - "Practice" Edition
Effort and success often go hand in hand. A survey of the greatest of the great athletes in the world found that one thing that consistently described their behavior was "hard work". Wayne Gretzky spent countless hours shooting and passing. Michael Jordan spent the same taking foul shots. They both took their God-given talent and honed it through hours and hours of practice. Yes, for both of them there was an element of having "the gift", but both would have failed (or, perhaps ended up being just average) had they not taken the time to work out their skills. They took what God gave them and worked it.
Not all of us are blessed with some off-the-chart natural gift of some kind. However, we can, and should, take the gifts and talents that God has given us and work them out. Or, work out to improve them. Practice isn't glamorous or even fun, but that makes all the difference in the world. This is what we all need to do with spiritual practice. Attending church, praying, reading the Bible, sharing our faith, and engaging in ministry are all ways that we practice and work out, spiritually speaking. None of these make you a Christian, but all of them help being one!
