It's a new day, the sun is shining and the Bible Bowl words are flying. Our brains are turning to mush, I'm not going to lie.
My younger brother and sister and I have been studying a ton all day long (at least since we woke up...though I dare say we may have dreamed Bible Bowl last night as well). Learning verses, keywords, Bible stories. My goodness did Samson have anger issues. The man needs serious help.
It's always fun when we get close to a tournament and everything gets kicked up into high gear. We study all month round of course (most of us do anyway) but the week of competition we study as much as we breathe it seems like. And I love the feeling of the tension in the air and how serious everyone gets. I don't know why I enjoy this, but I do. Our lives are almost put on hold as we study day and night, night and day, the week of competition.
We all have a goal that we are striving for, an end that we want to reach. A purpose that drives us every minute of our time. And I was thinking, that's how it should be with Jesus, right? I mean, we should be purposely striving to be like Him, and to obey Him and serve Him and love Him every second of every day. It shouldn't be a relaxing stroll through a field. We don't know when our lives will end and we need to be working for Jesus NOW. With every fiber of our beings.
There's a whole world out there that needs to see the light, and we have it so let's SHARE it!
