SWING TO SCORE – “Don’t Just Try: Train”
For us to score in the game of life, we must Train ourselves!
We MUST answer this question!
How can I put myself in a position where I can be empowered by the Holy Spirit for spiritual transformation? What must I do to cooperate with the Holy Spirit so I will grow?
1 Cor 9:24, “Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it. Athletes exercise self-control, or endure training, in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreathe, but we do it, (in other words we exercise self-control, or we undergo training), to pursue an imperishable wreathe. So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as though beating the air. But I punish my body and enslave it so that after proclaiming to others, I myself should not be disqualified. “
1 Tim 4:7, “Train yourself in godliness. For while physical training is of some value, godliness is valuable in every way, holding promises for both the present life and the life to come.“ Training yourself in godliness.
Train yourself to be godly. How?
By stepping up to the plate and taking a swing.
