Huh? That doesn't seem right. But it was the coach who coined "perfect practice makes perfect", the obvious implication being that the boys weren't perfect in their execution quite yet, but they won't get there by taking any less of an attitude on the practice field than perfection being their goal. And what did Jesus say in Matthew when discussing the expectation of their behavior and actions in daily life? "And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect."
Our practice field is the here in now; living out life in this present life on planet earth. But here's the difference. Ours is not a game. Life is real and the consequences of life are very very real. Today, Pastor Gerry delves into life with our empowering Holy Spirit. Are we perfect in this life? You can answer that. But before you do, realize that we've been given the ultimate game changer, the Holy Spirit, who gives us the power, day by day, hour by hour, to move toward that ultimate goal of being just like our Savior Jesus. Praise God.
