Matthew 28:18-20 New International Version (NIV)
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Athletes are conditioned to be strong both physically and mentally. The measure of great athletes shows how much faster, stronger and smarter they are than the opponent. But as Christian competitors, we have the game-changing advantage of being spiritually strong.
We serve a strong God, and we are called to be like Him in every area of our lives. God calls us to be solid in our faith, to fight the good fight with perseverance, and surround ourselves with a firm support system in order to finish strong. With Jesus Christ and His Word transforming us daily, we can be strong 24/7!
Camps are a time of "inspiration and perspiration" for athletes and coaches to reach their potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training.
In the heart of every champion is a desire to give our best towards something that is greater than ourselves. The passionate pursuit of greatness propels the athlete to the edge of his or her ability and beyond. Fierce persistence and unyielding determination define the great competitors throughout history. Great champions who are a part of a team also relentlessly pursue working together as ONE with their teammates. ONE in conditioning, ONE in practice and ONE in competition. Their never-ceasing commitment to excellence brings out the best in them and those around them. It defines how they become the best that they can be.
God made us this way. He loves us. He pursues us. His plan for us is to have abundant and eternal life in Jesus Christ. In return, when we pursue God with a desperate and determined heart, God will take us to the edge of our abilities and beyond, and He will show us how to live as ONE with the ONE who makes us ONE. There is nothing as sweet as living the life of a Competitor for the Lord.
