Never Begin Means Never Won

  Sometimes people hesitate becoming a Christian for fear they "can't hold out." But this is not a justified excuse for rejecting Christ. It is good to already understand how "holding out," remaining faithful, is necessary. But fear of what might happen in the future is no acceptable reason to refuse to obey.

  We must indeed count the cost and enter into Christ with the determination to remain loyal. But we must also realize that a race never begun is a race that is never won.

  It is certain that we are His disciples IF we continue in His Word. But think soberly. We may try and fail, but we are sure to fail if we never try.
