Rockies Advance to the World Series

Twenty-two games ago the Rockies’ season looked bleak, but what a difference 21 wins make. The Rockies won 21 of their last 22 games to advance to the World Series. Their success shows what teamwork and perseverance can accomplish. It also shows how willing fans are to support a winning team. The cost of tickets to a World Series game ranges from $65 to the thousands of dollars. (I won’t be attending.)
What might happen in the life of a discouraged congregation if the members refused to accept defeat and, instead, anticipated spiritual success? What might happen if teamwork replaced a selfish numero uno attitude? What might happen if members supported their church financially to the point of contributing beyond ten percent? Surely, God would honor such actions by showing a community what He can do through even a few believers whose priorities, motives, and commitment please Him.
