Heavy-weight boxing champion Mike Tyson, in an interview some years ago, said he did "not really" want to get back together with his estranged wife, Robin Givens.
"Both of us, you know, we made big mistakes and I said things that I really shouldn't have said. I meant them, but I shouldn't have made them publicized," Tyson told interviewer David Frost.
Asked if he wants a reconciliation with Givens, whom he has sued for divorce, Tyson said "Well, not really." He also told Frost, "I'm kind of frustrated at this particular time, but as far as being happy, I'm content with what's going on."
His most prized possessions were "two dogs that I like."
These are strange remarks in light of Tyson's publicized conversion to Christ shortly before this interview was given. Aren’t people supposed to change when they came to the Savior?
The Bible tells us:
Galatians 5:19-26 (KJV);
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”
IF we are Christ’s, we should have changed! If we have the Holy Spirit, we should SHOW IT! If we have to TELL people that we have been saved, perhaps we need to examine ourselves more closely.
May God bless each one of you -
