Our Aim. ( Romans 14 v 5 - 6 )

It was said of the Roman empire, ''that adversity never brought them low, and success never puffed them up''. I was listening on the radio, two athletes involved in the winter Olympic ,they came in eleventh , but they where not disappointed,as they told of the difficulties they had experienced,one of them told, how she had an accident ,and was told  that it brought the end of her performing.But in spite of this she had persevered. In spite of the adversity she had faced,  it did not make her give up.One of the most important things in the Christian life is perseverance,we read of many believers who are facing adversity, and in it all they do not give up.But perseverance is not just for those been persecuted, it  applies to us all ,for their are many challenges to face in life.unemployment, children    who break our hearts,whatever the difficulties we may be facing,we can ,let me repeat the,''we can'',     by Gods grace, yes ''we can'' persevere. Then let us consider, not been puffed up by our successes, puffed up simple means full of pride,when the Roman general was returning from a successful campaign,he was reminded of his humanity. I notice that when footballers score a goal many of them point up,I wonder why?, could it be that they are giving glory to God,I hope so,remember in all our successes we should always  give glory to God.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   A prayer                                                                                                                                   Dear Lord grant us the grace we need to                                                                                                    persevere in all of life's  adversities,  and                                                                                                  in all my successes ,to remain humble                                                                                                                            Amen
