DAILY WORDS OF HOPE

whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:27
THEME: COUNT THE COST
WORDS OF HOPE:
“He demonstrated the true spirit of a boxer. In football, when you are in trouble, most players pass the buck or pass the ball. In boxing, there is no one to pass it on to. You can’t pass the buck in a boxing ring, and to have held the title for that long also demonstrates the fighting spirit of the man. He is, in a way self-made. Others who tried to rely on other environments didn’t last that long. Most champions do not last as long as he did, and he did so because of his own personal and internal spiritual, mental, and physical discipline” – these were some of the words of Jerry Rawlings, a former Ghanaian President at the launch of the book “The Professor” a biography of the legendary Azumah Nelson. Have you counted the cost of being a Christian like Azumah did as a boxer? Learn from hence, that such as take up a profession of Christianity, without considering the dangers and difficulties, the trials and troubles, the afflictions and temptations, which may accompany it, will never hold out in the spiritual warfare, but either fall in it, or run from it. Pray you wait on the Lord as he promised grace for the journey of life. That is your portion this morning in Jesus’ Name. Amen!!
