Oftentimes you will hear a sports broadcaster say, “He (or she) has their game face on.” In other words, they mean business. They are into the game, the event, the series. Nothing else matters but one thing – to win the prize.
You and I are in a race. Our Prize? The high calling of God in Christ Jesus. To win this race we too must have our “game face” on. We too must be about our Father’s business.
A Christian’s destiny is heaven. However, while on earth we need to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” so that we will finish our race unashamed. Are you playing by the rules? Or do you have divided interests, making you double-minded, unstable in all your ways?
Our lives as followers of Jesus were never meant to be compartmentalized. No. Anything and everything we do is to be done for the Lord and for His glory. So saints, put on your game face! To glorify Christ in all that we do is the game plan. There are no bows to be taken; no standing (or sitting) ovations for us. Nothing but glory “to the King, eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God”.
Don’t get sidetracked. Don’t get weary. Finish your course well16 so that you will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant… Enter into the joy of your Lord.”
