~ Pastor's Encouraging Words ~

  We will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9
Perseverance is needed to win the prize:

      It's said that Walt Disney's request for a loan was rejected by 301 banks before he finally got a "yes". yet he built the world's most famous theme park. so, this year remember:

  (1) Perseverance is needed to win the prize. At a sales convention the manager said to 2,000 of his firm's sales force, "Did the Wright brothers quit? "No!' they responded. "Did Charles Lindbergh quit? "No!" they shouted. "Did Thorndike McKester quit?" There was a long, confused silence. Then a salesperson shouted, "Who in the world is Thorndike McKester? Nobody's ever heard of him." The sales manager snapped back, "Of course you haven't--that's because he quit?"
Quitters never win, and winners never quit.

(2) Perseverance turns adversity into advancement. Paul writes, "Everything that has happened to me here has helped to spread the Good News" (Philippians 1:12). Paul didn't give up--he rose up!  How did he do it? He found the benefit to him personally that comes from every trial.

      One Christian author writes: "Today we're obsessed with speed, but God is more interested in strength and stability. We want a quick fix, the shortcut, the on-the-spot solution. We want a sermon, a seminar or an experience that will instantly resolve all problems, remove all temptation and release us from all growing pains. But real maturity is never the result of a single experience, no matter how powerful or moving." Growth is gradual.
The Bible says, "Our lives gradually becoming brighter and more
beautiful as God enters...and we become like Him"
(Colossians 3:18).

The scriptural key to success is — running the race each day.
See Hebrews 12:1-2
So, this year—persevere.

Next, Part-3 of:

God bless all of you - See you Sunday!
