Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
Hockey Chat: Goalie Andrew Raycroft was picked up by the Boston Bruins 135th overall in the 1998 Entry Draft. Although he didn’t get drafted onto the team in the top picks, the coaching staff had faith in him and worked with him through the early years as he played in the minor leagues in order to get him ready for the NHL. He was brought up in the fall of 2003 and won the 2004 Calder Trophy (Most Valuable Rookie of the NHL).
Life Lesson: God knows we are not perfect and we know it too. But he chose us to be on His team and because of that we keep striving to live the life Christ has called us to live. It takes time and determination but we stay focused. When we let Jesus take hold of our life we can take hold of the promises he has in store for us.
