Athlete of God

I play to win, whether during practice or a real game. And I will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to win.”  –Michael Jordan

Athletes cannot perform well under pressure unless they first put in the necessary practice.  Athletes Michael Jordan and Derek Jeter actually prosper under pressure because there isn’t anyone who prepares better than they do.  As Christians we must prepare ourselves every day in prayer, so that we are ready for the pressure we will face in the day.  If you prepare well then when someone smarts off to you then you brush it off because it isn’t that big of a deal.  When you are tempted by sexual sin, you resist.  When you could be greedy, instead you give.  Practice because you are an athlete of the Most High God.    

ALSO [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up)… (Luke 18:1, AMP).
