Don’t Drop the Ball

1 Peter 1:3-6 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has great mercy, and because of his mercy he gave us a new life. This new life brings us a living hope through Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death. Now we wait to receive the blessings God has for his children. These blessings are kept for you in heaven. They cannot be ruined or be destroyed or lose their beauty. God’s power protects you through your faith, and it keeps you safe until your salvation comes. That salvation is ready to be given to you at the end of time. I know the thought of that is exciting, even if you must suffer through different kinds of troubles for a short time now.

In your walk through life with Jesus, have you ever been tempted to give up on Him? Turn back from that relationship? Go your own way? If so, you wouldn’t be the first one to think about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

In my younger years, I played a few seasons of a brand of football called rugby. T’was not my finest hour. The cardinal sin is dropping the ball. Your teammates just glare at you in utter disbelief. I remember it well.

So many people who believe in Jesus end up dropping the ball. You’re running along, a brutal tackle knocks you to the ground and when you have the wind knocked out of you, the great temptation is to drop the ball. But if you believe in Jesus, you have an eternity waiting for you that’s beyond comprehension. An inheritance that imperishable, undefiled and unfading being kept in heaven … for you.

1 Peter 1:3-6 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has great mercy, and because of his mercy he gave us a new life. This new life brings us a living hope through Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death. Now we wait to receive the blessings God has for his children. These blessings are kept for you in heaven. They cannot be ruined or be destroyed or lose their beauty. God’s power protects you through your faith, and it keeps you safe until your salvation comes. That salvation is ready to be given to you at the end of time. I know the thought of that is exciting, even if you must suffer through different kinds of troubles for a short time now.

So whatever you do, no matter how hard it gets, no matter how brutal the tackle … don’t drop the ball.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
