Join the club. ( Luke 15 v 11- 31 )
So it did not happen, the fastest man to run
the metres ,did not win the final at the World
championship in London. To many he is an idol
who appeared unbeatable, but it was not to be.
Of course if one follows sport ,we soon find out
that favourites do not always win. Simply, because
we are talking about human beings ,not machines.
The football team I follow on the TV will not
always win, because that's the way life is. Failing
is not nice, no one likes to fail ,but we will, the
question is this we can grow in failures, or we can
shrivel up and die, that goes for a failed marriage,
a failed business , a failure , morally. As a Christian
I believe one can rise from failure, the fact is, we are
all failures, for we are all sinners. To not recognise
that fact ,is the greatest failure of all, to accept this
truth, is the first step in rising up from all our failures,
and it starts at the cross of Jesus.
