In our friendship circles there will always be individuals who are more passionate about a specific sport or activity than the others. It’s not a bad thing at all, in fact it’s what makes that person unique. However, there can also be that one person that seems to take their passion to the next level. No matter where they are or who they are with, that one thing will always be the topic of conversation. Their passion almost seems to go beyond dedication and border on obsession.
Now I’m not sure if you would be able to relate to this, but in my friendship circles these individuals always seem to be soccer fans. They live and breathe soccer. It has become so important to them, that it’s almost as if their lives depended on it. No matter where they are, soccer is always the topic of conversation. I think it’s safe to say that they would rather be without food for a week than miss their favourite team’s game. They show the highest form of commitment and dedication and no matter what others may think, that will never change. Win or lose, rain or shine, that is the team they support and everyone should know about it.
I recently came across a video that made me realise that there is a direct link between the passion people have for their favourite sports team and faith. Have a look.
So, you see Christianity is a lot like football, and any other passion you may have for that matter. It takes commitment and dedication. You can’t be into it one day and then not the next. You have to make a choice and decide to give your whole heart to it. We often see people running to Jesus in the hard times, but neglecting him in the good times. But that’s not how it works, he wants to have a relationship with us. He wants us to be 100% committed to him, just as he is 100% committed to us. Let your passion be evident to all those around you. I promise that if you make a decision to live for Jesus, it will be the best decision you have ever made!
