Living Game Seven

Last week in the world of professional sports, there were five “game sevens” played - three in hockey (Boston/Carolina, Washington/Pittsburgh, Detroit/Anaheim) and two in basketball (Boston/Orlando, Los Angeles/Houston). The seventh game of a playoff series in any sport is a “do or die” game – a game when everything is on the line, where everything you do matters, and you play as if there is no tomorrow.

For those of us who truly know Jesus – should we not live everyday as if it were “game seven”?

But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)
