2 John 1:8 NASB "Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward." I could feel the rope beginning to slip, I had to get a better grip! Today's verse is a warning, a warning about keeping an eye out for the things that may cause us to slip and fall back! As the unit got higher, the weight seemed to get heavier, meaning that we had to hold on tighter if we wanted to get it to where it needed to be. Lifting up the unit, to get it to the roof, meant using all our strength and not letting it begin to fall back. Sure our arms ached, our hands became tired, but we needed to keep an eye on our progress or it never would have gotten there. In life, there will be those things that try and pull us away from our walk with Christ, things that make us "slip" backwards to where we were once before! Don't let it happened, we've grown in Him to where we are and we need to keep moving forward. Hang on tight my friends, for when it's over, there will be a full reward. We all cheered when the unit finally rested upon the roof, just imagine how it will be when we get to heaven! peace, tom
