“If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love.” - JOHN 15:10
Years ago, when Vince Lombardi became the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, he had his work cut out for him. At the first preseason meeting, Lombardi entered the locker room and uttered just five words: “Gentlemen, this is a football.” He knew how important it is to get the basics right.
How important the basics are in our daily walk too - things like reading the Bible daily, praying consistently, attending worship regularly. Whenever you feel that you’re just going through the motions in your Christian life, get back to the fundamentals, the basics.
Our success or failure is often determined by how well we execute these basics of the Christian life.
