Fellowship of Christian Athletes

Good morning readers! I hope everyone is doing well this morning.

Today I wanted to talk about sports. I am a huge sports fan. Although I don’t enjoy every kind of sport out there, I am die-hard when it comes to baseball and college football. College football season is getting ready to start, and the baseball season is sadly winding down.

This morning I wanted to talk about the athletes that actually play the sports.

When you see athletes point towards the heavens after they hit a home run, score a touchdown, or whatever, what does that make you think? Do you assume they are just showing off and acting like a Christian, or do you think they are actually praising God?

I know I don’t know that person’s heart or story, but half the time I think they are just showing off. I like that they are trying to show praise to God. However, more people should be giving Him the praise.

If you are a Christian athlete, do you show Him the praise for what you do on the field? If not, why not?

I am just curious on what people think.

Athlete or not, we should be giving God the praise for everything, good or bad.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

College Football and Jesus

Hello readers and sports fans! It has been a little over a month since my last post, and I apologize about that.

Well everyone, the college football season is almost here. Sept. 2nd is just around the corner! ARE YOU READY??

Here in Oklahoma, college football is a huge thing. Who you root for can be a factor in so many things in life you wouldn’t believe. I have heard that it can even cost you your job.

As you can see in the picture, ” Get Intense” in the slogan alongside the team mascot of the team I root for, the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

I was thinking, shouldn’t we “Get Intense” for Jesus? Why can’t we be fired up for Him like we get fired up for any sporting event?

The Bible mentions something about being luke warm for Christ:

Rev. 3:15-16 (The Message)

“I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot!16 You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit.

Let’s get on fire for Christ!

I leave you with this question today:

What are you doing to get on fire for Christ?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Tech. Tuesday — Guitar Praise

Good morning readers! It is Tech. Tuesday! The other day, I got a xbox 360 elite from my wife as a college graduation present. It came with two games and I purchased NCAA College Football 2010. This last weekend I was thinking about video games and the old original Nintendo and the games I played as a kid. I remember Super Mario Bros. , Duck Hunt, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Donkey Kong, etc.. Those were really fun. I also remember one game that my friend had. It was a Christian game called BibleMan. We played it on a PC, but I used to think that was so odd.

Well I was in a Christian bookstore recently and saw another Christian video game. This time it was for both PC and Mac. With the popularity of the Guitar Hero games and Rock  Band, I think this was a good move. It is called Guitar Praise.

It features 50 songs from Christian rock artists like tobyMac, dcTalk, Hawk Nelson, and more! I only wish it could run on my new xbox. For more information about Guitar Praise, click here .

What do you think readers? Are Christian video games worth buying/playing?

Until next time readers, God Bless!
