I'm a HUGE football fan. Be it the NFL, College Football or High School Football I'm luvin' it!
I love the atmosphere, I love the game and I love the shear thought of just being around it.
I love me some football!
So as you might guess I was watching College Gameday on ESPN Saturday when they did a story on all the motivating traditions different schools did before they took the field.
Needless to say it was very interesting. I didn't realize that so many schools did such a variety of things before taking the field. Now, I'm not a huge Notre Dame fan, but I do like to catch a game or two when I can. And I've always known about their "Play Like A Champion Today" sign that each player touches in their own special way before taking the field.
I just didn't know so many other schools did such a variety of other things and I was very interested in the way CGD covered this story. As I watched about seven minutes of the story they eventually came to the Notre Dame sign pictured above and just as soon as I seen that sign this thought occured to me...
"Why don't Christians go out into the world with some kind of motivational tradition like this? Instead of "Play Like A Champion Today why don't we Christians have a sign or something that says, "Represent Christ Today!"??
I don't know what triggered that thought.
Maybe there is just something spiritual about football 8-) but as I was taking in all the different things each school did before going to do battle on the field I wondered why Christians aren't this motivated to go out everyday and do battle in the world?
Maybe if we adopted this same kind of mindset we could make a little bigger impact in the world. Seems to me that a lot of Christians forget that Christalready won the victory. Now we just gotta go out and RUN UP THE SCORE!!!!
