Compete for God's Glory!

God’s cares about sports.  It’s one of his good gifts to enjoy, it’s a way to become more like him, and to point our world to him! For 15 years Brian Smith author of The Christian Athlete, has been helping athletes learn how to bring Jesus into their sport and to glorify him when the crowd is, and isn’t watching. First, Brian once thought that following Jesus was all about avoiding sin. Then, why God cares so deeply about sports. Next, Brian lost the cross country state championship for his high school team. That was his greatest blessing!

Then, why we think Tom Brady can’t retire—this will hit close to home. Next, looking spiritual on the outside but inside being self-absorbed; and what to do about it! Then, if you’re the parent of an athlete, finding your identity in Jesus and not your kids, and letting your kids learn! Next, Perry wonders if there’s anything redemptive about his competitive nature. Then, ways to reset your mind on honoring God in the heat of competition. Finally, what to do when your motivation for playing becomes more self-serving than God-honoring.
