I recently watched the old classic movie, Ben Hur with my son. During the filming of Ben Hur, Charlton Heston had a terrible time learning to drive the chariot. When it came time to film the key sequence of the chariot race, Heston told the director Wyler, "I think I can drive the chariot, but I don't think I can win the race."
The director replied, "You just drive, and I'll see to it that you win."
Think about it - wouldn't it be great if we could be assured of victory in life? Wouldn't you like to know that, even though the circumstances don't always seem to be in our favor, the ultimate outcome would be positive?
Here is good news for all of us - the above principle does hold true in our life. Jesus is a winner and has won every battle He fought. Those of us who place our trust in Jesus Christ, and those who seek to follow His guidance and direction for living, can be sure of ultimate victory through eternal life.
Let's live our short life God's way. He assures us the ultimate victory.
Countdown: 23 days till Easter.
