You may or may not know that the college football championship game was played last night with Clemson beating Alabama in the final minute of the game. Alabama was believing that they had won the game. All they needed to do was hold of their opponent for 4:28 minutes and they would be champions. Clemson however was unrelenting in their goal to take down Alabama and win. They played hard until the final whistle and took the championship away from Alabama with one seconds left in the game.
Our walk with God is no different. We can’t believe that once we are saved we can live our lives as if nothing can keep us from going to heaven. That all we need to do is go to church and live a clean life and we are in. Satan is also unrelenting in his goal. He will keep fighting until we fall from grace and he wins. Be mindful of the temptations that Satan uses to win. Stay focused till the end, for your reward will not be a trophy but rather eternal life in heaven next to your heavenly father.
Alabama only lost a football game, we however can lose much much more.
Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets
