Coaches, Teammates, and Friends,
Some things have to be believed to be seen.
Our country (and world) is in desperate need of people of FAITH who KNOW that God honors FAITH and are not afraid to proclaim it.
Consider this story of PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
A bold unbeliever was lecturing a group on the folly of religious faith in general and the Christian faith in particular. At the close of the presentation the speaker invited people to propound any questions they might have. In the audience was the town drunkard, who had been converted to Christ. In response to the invitation the converted alcoholic came up front, took out an orange, peeled it, and ate it without comment.
The speaker asked if he had a question for him. After downing the last segment of orange, the convert turned to the infidel and asked, “Was the orange I just ate sweet or sour?” Angrily, the speaker replied, “You idiot, how can I know whether it was sweet or sour when I never tasted it?” To this the converted drunkard retorted, “And how can you know anything about Christ if you have not tried Him?”
Psalms 34:8 O taste and SEE that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.
Our GOD wants you to know Him … not about Him. He doesn’t want religious acts; He wants loving relationship with us.
His blessing be upon you.
Onward and Upward,
