Don't Lose Sight of The Goal!

"Don't Give Up! Don't Give In! It's Not Over Until YOU Win!" - 
Pastor Rick Sherer

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." - Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

There are so many different ways to look at the above picture:

The man who gave up could have been digging for an escape from his troubles or whatever ensnared him. But what he didn't know was that there was a great reward for his challenges.  God provided a means for escape AND a reward for his diligence. 

On the flip side, imagine if he knew what was on the other side but chose to give up because he didn't think the reward was close.  Someone else is going to get his blessing.

The man who is digging on the top tier could represent Christ and how He is in the trenches right along with us. With the two of them working together, thanks to how He sets us up to win, all of the diamonds would have rained down to the man on the bottom. 

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." - Galatians 6:9 (NKJV)

True disciples know that there is a great reward for continuing to the end. If we just keep "digging" and "banging out" our challenges, Christ has rewards beyond our imagination waiting just on the other side...and he's already set us up to win!

Keep digging and don't give up! Your exceedingly and great reward is awaiting you!




  1. Wow!! What an illustration.. Just a few more swings of the haxsaw and he would have been rich. But the other guy looks like he still has a lot of energy to go on and get the diamonds. Thanks!

  2. Great illustration!!, It is so right on for both of those scriptures, blessings to you, thanks.

  3. I love this scripture! Life is a journey and we all take different roads. During Our travel, we have challenges, opportunities, laughs, anxious moments, joys, disappointments, happy times,
