Endure to the End

Anyone who knows me knows that I love sports. Here is a video of the Arizona Dimondbacks when they won the 2001 World Series. Before this they were down 3 games to 2. They won game 6 so they were tied at 3 to 3. So who ever won game 7 would be called the best team in baseball. going into the bottom of the ninth they were down 2 to 1 then they come back to win it! so as we can see the dimondbacks "endured to the end" even when the going was tough. It would have been easy just to crawl into a corner and let the Yankees win. But they did not do that! They won it all! All sports is like this. There are many comebacks that I can think of and I'm sure that you can think of. now lets relate this to our lives. What does sports have to do with out lives?   

Just like in sports are we going to get that final hit? or hit that game wining shot? or are we going to crumble under pressure and lose? Are we going to "Endure to the End" by not giving into the ways of this world that we live in? For remember he that "endures to the end the same shall be saved" (Mark 13:13, Matthew 24:13, 2 Nephi 31:16). It is not enough to accept Christ have a very good moments then fall back into temptation. we need to continue on and endure to the end. we need to be followers of Christ until the day we die. When we fall into temptation we need to know what we did was wrong and not do it again. This world is hard. I know that it is. May we all "Endure to the End." If we fall lets get back up and continue on till we get the prize.

Its bottom of the ninth game 7. what are you going to do?
