The "Want To" - Junior Boys To Adult

The “Want To”

When a guy is playing football he’s not going to go out there and say o’well it doesn’t matter if we win or loose.  No, he’s going to say “We ARE going to WIN this game!”  He’s not going to go out there and do a halfway job.  Why go out there and face the enemy and not care if you win or not?  The “want to” is going to be there and better be or your going to get run down by some really big guys.
Your not going to go onto a field filled with rough tough football players and not put on your protection.  Your going to need a helmet and pads, some good running shoes, you’ll need a good water supply nearby and a towel to wipe your brow. 

Listening to the coach, knowing the plays and team work are essential to being a winning team.  The screaming MOM in the bleachers or family cheering you on,
encouraging you to be the best you can be is highly effective in letting you know you are counted on to GIVE IT YOUR ALL.

Everybody has to do their part.

In our Christian walk we need to want to win.  We need to strive for the prize.
The “want to’ better be there and if not, you will be run over by the enemy and defeated.  Don’t go into the Christian life giving a halfway effort.  Yes, we will fail sometimes, but don’t lose sight of what’s important by dwelling over your failures. 

You need to prepare yourself for the battle by wearing your helmet.  The helmet of salvation.  You need to KNOW you are saved, be secure in it.
You need shielded, have faith in what God can do through you and in your life.
You need your weapon—The Sword OF The Spirit - Memorize scripture, it is your sword.
Put on the biblical protection God teaches us about in - Ephesians 6:11-13

Ephesians 6:11-13
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.


Listen to the pastors preaching, and learn from other Christians.  Remember we are all human, give grace as God has given you grace.  Want to win, want to serve, want to be the best Christian you can be. Encourage others to be their best.

Live to win,
to win in your Christian walk...To win the prize,
The prize you will set at your Saviors feet.

Now Go Out There 
And Win - While Walking With The Savior
