Heading To The Championship

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. ( Philippians 3:14 KJV)

Set your mind on the prize and go for the GOAL!

Pastor Clive Saunders, shepherd of the flock of which I was once apart, was dressed out of the ordinary during yesterday's Sunday Morning Worship Service. Typically, as Ministers of the Gospel, you would usually see us nicely attired in shirt and tie or full suits. The senior pastor came to church in basketball team clothing as seen below and had basketballs and jerseys all across the sanctuary. We would later find out that he wanted us to get a particular message.

I got it. The children got it. We got the message and I had to share it with you. As he preached, he reminded his audience and constantly postulated that Jesus is the ONLY way to the grand prize - HEAVEN. We were reminded of  what John 14:6 says, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

He used several analogies of current and past teams who were determined to get the grand prize at the end of the tournaments in basketball or football. "They ensured that they remained focused," he said, "they ensured that they played well and played as a team."

What I liked a lot about this particular sermon, is that Pastor Saunders consistently reminded his listeners to never let obstacles, barriers and naysayers prevent them from reaching the championship - getting the grand prize.

I needed that word right then and there and it was another reminder for me and for you to NOT  GIVE  UP because the CHAMPIONSHIP is ahead. Hope is Ahead. I left smiling and ready to face my week after expressing to him my gratitude for sharing what the Lord had laid on his heart.

Friend, I am going to the CHAMPIONSHIP. Even though things may be rough and tough for me and you at this point in time, let our eyes be on the PRIZE. Even though there may be others trying to keep us back from going. Let's be prepared to climb over the obstacles and not stop till we reach the prize. We must be prepared to fight the fight until the end. Don't Give Up!

May I suggest that I believe there is a mini prize here on earth and there is the grand prize of getting to enter HEAVEN.

On earth, that prize is success and prosperity in every area that God approves. 3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

The second prize is the fact that once you accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life, you will get into heaven. Several parts throughout the Bible and especially in Revelation, we get a true picture of what it'll be like over yonder. No pain or hurt, no tears, everything will be perfect there. Above all of this, the Jesus that we've trusted throughout our lives will be there.

Friend, it's no time to give up now. As Paul suggests in Philippians 3:14, "Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

Let's head to the championship TOGETHER. Don't be selfish and leave anyone behind. Spread the good news of how JESUS can make the difference in people's lives. There is a better life ahead. Keep going! Keep going! Hope's Ahead!
