What are some the things that your your challenging athletes to do and get some examples of that. One thing the Scripture says this in Ephesians 511 it says do not participate in the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. So one way of doing that and really extracting what is Christ from that which is not as I want to expose fear.
For example, at a young athlete. Why do we want to expose fear because the Bible says fear is torment. It also says in a same verse the perfect love, perfect love which time the perfect little Christ cast out fear and it also says for God is not given us a spirit of fear but right but rather power love and a sound mind at second Timothy chapter 1 verse seven. So in these camps will try to extract and try to expose systems like fear, greed, pride, idolatry of all different sorts will try to show through through athletic competition, and intense training that these things are, if there alive and kicking in your life that they're going to be readily seen and now you gently can help lead a kid into here so we conquer that, so why not just try to get the kids beat be better athletes, better sports, don't swear, don't do this on to you.
Hopefully all that happens, the idea is to get right to the source of the matter show through through athletic competition, and intense training that these things are and if there alive and kicking in your life that there that they're going to be readily seen and now you gently can help lead a kid into here so we conquer the so what I just try to get the kids beat be better athletes, better sports, don't swear, don't do this on to hopefully all that happens.
But the idea is to get right to the source of the matter is there sin in your life, what report from how do we know their sent out. We know there's fear there. Why saw you standing at the free-throw line and I saw you looking around at everybody else and with you thinking what are they thinking about me. If I make the shot, here if I miss a shot, on the go and we saw the fear in your in your heart you know you are moms and dads maybe don't know anything about a three technique in football mom and dad maybe only thing about taking free-throw the technique of maybe that's the coaches job but maybe you do know yes my son is scared to death, and that free-throw line and how now can you as a parent, being that you seen it when he was eight years old. Maybe it at that. The youth sports level. How now can you go home and have a really good conversation with him about the Bible and what the Bible says about fear and and and and and how to have peace, and in very trying times.
These are things that kids can really learn at an early age and sports can be that constant in a life that continually brings we hope you gain from this Christian worldview radio program to hear the full program in the ministry is the Christian worldview.org I'm David
