Answer: Each player raises a racket!
You need a tool to play badminton, a racket.
That was 82 hits just to win just ONE point, but the game is not finished until you get 15 points.
Life can be that way a lot of the time. We work and work, but it seems that the job is never quite finished. As Christians, we have a freedom and an assurance that the most important job has been finished for us and HE did it all. Yes, before Jesus breathed His last breath while on the cross, He shouted “Finished”.
John 19:30 Jesus knew that He had now fulfilled all things that needed to be accomplished that the Scripture might be fulfilled. Jesus has done it all so that we do not need to work and strain our way into getting more accepted and more loved by God. “Greater love has no one than this than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
John 15.13 During these different times, hold tight to how much God cares for you. It is not as much how much we love God but receiving how much He loves you and me. Our future is secure with Jesus. When your trust is in Jesus alone, the game is over. HE WON….we win!
