“God has blessed every person with certain physical skills and /or abilities, and each person participates in kingdom building when those skills and abilities are used to declare Jesus Christ. When the soloist sings, or the pastor preaches, or the athlete uses his or her sport as a platform for serving the purposes of God, each is fulfilling God’s will as it pertains to his kingdom purposes. To fail to use what God has given us through our physical creation denies the very order and sovereignty of God.”

Although the weather outside for week #6 of Spirit-Driven Soccer may be snowy and freezing, the action inside is sure to warm you up in no time. The fresh covering of snow reminds us that Jesus’ blood washes our sins away, and God gives us a fresh start each day.

Maybe it will set in motion a new habit of looking for daily ways to become grace extenders. Looking forward to another great Sunday of Spirit-Driven Soccer.
