“…Try it….like it…do it….”

Trying vs. Training:  What do medical doctors, engineers, educators, NFL players, astronauts, physicists, clergymen, sharpshooters, electricians, gas-technicians, jet-pilots, military, paratroopers, CPA’s, attorneys, marathon runners, opera singers, weightlifters, golfers, and hairdressers have in common?  They all have “required certifications” gained through extensive training.  Training, in some cases… over. many years.  Note:  In none of these categories would one become certified, or successful in their field by just “trying.”  Training is the only pathway.  Then on the other hand; what endeavors that are highly responsible, some very powerful and influential, yet require little, to no training?  Um…let’s see.  For starters:  The President of the United States, tattoo artists, senators, and congressmen, news commentators, marriage counselors, getting married, getting divorced, TV technicians, computer nerds, mayor’s, council-people, and governors ….none of these require training and/or certification.  Try it….like it…do it.  Then…get this; those individuals seeking a spiritual relationship with their Lord God; they spend minutes per day, a few hours per week, and THINK … this is all the training they need.  The MOST IMPORTANT endeavor one should seek, and they’re ill-equipped, or poorly trained to succeed.  NO…I’m not talking about SALVATION (that’s a Gift from God), I’m talking about KNOWING God, KNOWING Jesus Christ; having a relationship with Them… not an acquaintance.   Matthew 28:19 – Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  …Blessings…cjlb…2/23/14
