When it comes to the NFL, our minds are often polluted by the stories of players who have fallen from grace.
However, once a year hundreds of NFL players and wives come together for a Christian conference. It is a powerful weekend, where I personally get to see different stories than most people. I get to see stories of redemption, healing, forgiveness, love and strength. For Corey and I, it is a precious time. The Lord often challenges us to new levels in our marriage and our faith.
My favorite part of the weekend, are the baptisms, where we witness men and women publicly take a stand for their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. After the baptisms, everyone came together to sing Amazing Grace. To me, there is no sweeter sound.
So, the next time you hear of an NFL player who might have fallen from grace, I ask you to pray for them. And pray for the other players who might have the opportunity speak Truth into their lives. And pray that the players who know Jesus will be bold enough to take a stand on their teams and live a life not of the world.
