Hall of Fame
I’m a runner and have an iPod full of upbeat music that motivates me while I work out. One of the songs on my running playlist is “Hall of Fame” by The Script. It’s a song about never giving up, never quitting, going the distance despite obstacles. One of the lines that’s repeated is:
“You can be a champion, you can be the greatest, you can be a champion, you can be the best”.
I feel like those are God’s thoughts toward us — you can be a champion, you can be a hero! But being in God’s hall of fame might look a bit different than being an Olympic medalist or a rockstar. We’re champions in God’s eyes by helping others to have a relationship with Him. All throughout scripture we see that God’s heart is for the world and we are commanded in the great commission to go and win others for Him.
Be a champion for God in 2013. Help those who are lost, hurting or hopeless. This is God’s heart for His people and should be our heart as well.
How can you be a champion this year?
