Practice, Practice, Practice
If you want to play football, you practice. You can say you love the sport, but if you don't practice, you’re going to lose. The apostle John would have made a good coach. “By this we know that we love the children of God: whenever we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God: that we keep his commandments. And his commandments do not weigh us down, because everyone who has been fathered by God conquers the world.” (1 John 5:2-4a) It doesn’t matter how much we say we love God. We need to learn his rules. Then practice them. That’s the way to victory.
