Practice Makes Perfect!

Linda and I watch Dancing with the Stars on Monday and Tuesday evening then American Idol on Wednesday and Thursday.
The idea behind the two programs is basically the same; people either dance or sing and should get better and better with practice until someone wins.
The ones that win do it by having regular people like me to vote for them.
The one with the best score at the end of the season is the winner.
If one of the dancers or singers doesn’t do as well, they don’t get the votes and will be “voted” off!
Even with hours and hours of practice, some just don’t seem to improve.
You can’t be a great dancer or singer overnight; it’s going to take practice!
Anyone can sing, whether good or bad, and anyone can dance, whether it’s good or bad.
And anyone can become a Christian but to be the best takes practice.
The moment you get saved the Holy Spirit begins to work on you; Rom 2:15
They demonstrate that God’s law is written within them, for their own consciences either accuse them or tell them they are doing what is right. NLT
But you can’t live a Christian life by conscience alone because your conscience has had more practice at sinfulness than it has holiness.
If you want to be the best that God wants you to be, you’ll have to work at it!
It is written to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Phil 2:12-13
However many Christians don’t improve!
They don’t practice, they don’t attend church or read the Bible or pray diligently!
They end up “voting” themselves out of the Christian life.
Just as the professional dancers or vocal coaches are on each show to help everyone be the best they can, so God has given His word, His ministers, and the fellowship of His church so that you can be the best you can be.
Remember…practice makes perfect!

One thought on “Practice Makes Perfect!

  1. For sure the training is difficult! The more practice we get the tougher it gets. I admit there have been times I’ve wanted to quit. BUT GOD, I love that He gets in the way of my “wants”. God promised to complete a good work in me, If I’ll not quit. “To the overcommer I will give…” well what does the quiter get?
