The way this works out in each of our lives is going to be different. You may not be a boxing fan, but you’ve got to admire George Foreman, the former heavyweight boxing champion. A few years ago, at the age of 42, he came out of retirement for one last fight. Was it for the glory? Not according to Foreman. Was it for the fame? No again. Was it because of the Lord? As amazing as it may seem the answer is yes. You see he’s a preacher who works with troubled young boys. He gets them off the streets and tells them about Jesus. Few boxing experts thought he would last more than 3 rounds against 28 year old Evander Holyfield. George Foreman didn’t win the fight, but he lasted all 12 rounds and he got paid for the fight which was what he wanted all along. I don’t know what God’s got for you to do, it may be as strange as what He had for George Foreman, or it may be as expected as sharing your faith with your neighbor, but I do know He wants you to believe Him & then put your faith into action.
