STEPPING OUT-OF-BOUNDS

I had missed a game winning free-throw. I swore that would never happen again. So I practiced until I became excellent at free-throws.

In the next big tournament, I swished two free-throws. On the last one, I heard an ear-splitting whistle in my ear. I had stepped over the free-throw line, so the points were invalidated.

That’s what Spirit does. We can practice and practice in the Christian life, but He still lets us know when we have stepped out of bounds! But unlike the buzzer, it’s very soft. He does this by withdrawing His peace from the Christian’s heart who steps out of bounds.

(From a sermon by Tim Huie "How to Behave in Church (and Everywhere Else!)" 1/16/2009)
