I was seated above the bull riders at a professional rodeo. I had awesome seats that came with a closed-circuit television of the activities behind the scene. The bull rider gently sat down on top of this rip snorting bull and as he fitted his left hand under the rope to get his grip, I noticed some letters embodied on the tips of three of his glove fingers. The letters on one finger was “T”, the other finger was “R”, and another finger was the letter “Y.” TRY! I assume every time he would mount a bull, he was reminded of his decision to at least try the best he could to ride the bull.
As Christians we have made the decision to TRY our best to live for Christ no matter what we face in life. God expects us to try to live as He has called us to live. When you try, God promises we can be one of His winner’s in life. God will help us as we try. Through Christ we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us. Our victory through Christ comes when we sincerely TRY to live and walk in Him. Jesus expects us to walk a certain way – His way (1 John 2:6).
