2 Chronicles 15:7

(15:7) “But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”

Today I want to talk about Being Forth and Inches.

Its Super bowl Sunday…

A time of celebration…

A time of festivity…

A time for fellowship and fun…

And tonight we will have a wonderful time with one of our countries greatest past times and we will enjoy what the game itself symbolizes …

This is the essence of good, clean competition…

A celebration of being the best at something ….

And lastly the idea of persevering through a long season for a great rewards for a chosen few...

And in the game there going to be some first downs…

There are going to be some hard hits…

There are going to be some plays and calls that we don’t agree with …

And if the game is tight …

There may even be a Hail Mary in there some where were we are going to see the coach and players with out much time…

And with the game on the line…

They are going to go for the long ball and hope for the best...

And it’s funny because we think about the game…

But if we pause for a moment we can see the correlation to the some of these things to our lives every day…

Because when you think about God …

And you think about life itself...

Life should be a time of celebration…

Life should be a time of festivity…

Life should be A time for fellowship and fun…

And in Life we strive for that which is the essence of good, clean competition…

On our Jobs….

In our personal lives…

In our families…

We celebrate of being the best at something ….

Being Good at something…

And we know that in life …

There are going to be some hits…

There are going to be some broken plays…

There are going to be some fumbles…

Lost yardage… and dropped passes…

That’s why Jesus said that in this life you WILL have tribulation…

He didn’t say you might have it…

He didn’t say it’s going to come to you every so often…

He said YOU WILL have this thing called tribulation…

And truly as Christians we know that if we persevere through a long season called life…

And we make to the last game of the season…

That God promises that there will be a great reward for a chosen few….

He said you have not chosen me but I have chosen you…

But the reality of this Game…

The Game of Life that is…

It that in this game …

There ARE going to be some first downs…

There are going to be some hard hits…

There are going to be some plays and calls that we don’t agree with …

And every once in a while you are going to find yourself in a situation where time is running out…

You’re on you’re forth and last down…

And you have just inches to get your first down and possibly the win…

And at that precise moment of time you have to decide…

And I go to go for it…

Or am I going to punt the ball and give possession of the ball to the other team…

You’re forth and inches…

This what we see here in the scripture today as

(15:7) “But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”

What do I do when it’s forth and inches?

What do I do when my son or daughter is counting on me and time is running out …?
