Destined to be a World Changer

Your true identity in this life is not as an athlete. An athlete is what you do, a follower of Christ is who you are. You are first and foremost a child of the living God.(Galatians 3:26) You are an annointed saint destined to be a world changer.

The Bible says, “But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, abide in him.” (1 John 2:27)

He has gifted you to be an ambassador for the cause of the gospel. A representative of Jesus. A person who brings to light the sacrifice of the cross and the hope it offers. Teaching the world that His resurrection from the grave not only brought Him to life, but will spiritually bring them to life as well.

So when you lace up your shoes, put on your cleats, pull on your swim cap, or dawn your uniform don’t be misled. The name on your jersey is the visual sign of the sports team you “play on”. But the name on your heart, is the consecrated evidence of the Savior you “play for”.
