1 John 2:17

"The World and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever." 1 John 2:17

What are the desires of this world? Money, Appearance, Prestige, Success, Power, etc.
What about the world of sports? Hits, Strike outs, making the team, winning, awards, championships, scholarships, drafts, pro. contracts, etc.

Scripture says these things are passing away. All of these things are temporary.

Christian athlete, my question to you is: will you be devastated when it does pass away? Are you wasting your time playing for the temporary or are you playing your sport focusing on what is eternal, "the will of God"?

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, you have been given abilities for a purpose greater than championships and scholarships. Discover what God's Will is for you in your sport. Pray that He would make clear to you your purpose for playing.
