Hockey Town in search of the Holy Grail

The one bright spot in a state ranked almost dead last in
economic terms has been championship teams that provide a
welcome distraction here in Michigan. However, the favored
Detroit Red Wings lost game five in the 2008 Stanley Cup
series, in triple overtime to the Pittsburgh Penguins in
front of a home town crowd. However, it was a locker room
interview, televised in the build up to game six, where one
sound byte really caught my attention.

"I think we were maybe a little focused on the outcome
instead of the process, and when you start focusing on
results that is where you get yourself in trouble,
so that is the way you got to do it and you canít look at
the outcome."

There in the middle of all the excitement about Hockeyís
Holy Grail was this basic principle that we so often over
look in our spiritual lives. We can get so caught up in
how we think we should look and act as Christians that we
can neglect what it truly means to be in a relationship
with Christ.

While the Apostle Paul would be the first to argue that
Christís work on the cross is complete, he also encouraged
the believers in Phillipi to continue to work out their
"salvation with fear and trembling before God." Song writer
Michael W. Smith in "My Place In This World," writes that
"this becoming is much harder than it seems." I all ways
loved the lady from church who wore a great big pin that
said "P.B.P.W.M.G.I.F.W.M.Y." In other words "Please Be
Patient With Me God Isnít Finished With Me Yet!"

Want to go places? Want to meet new people?
Just mess up one more time!

That may be the attitude of the world around us, but God
knows us intimately and isnít into instant gratification.
Other wise we would all be toast!

While I believe that God has goals for each of us, his real
goal is that we focus on the process of learning to hear his
voice and respond out of love and obedience, and let God
worry about the final outcome.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
