Abusing His Grace

Romans 6: 1What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By the time an athlete, especially a multi-sport athlete, reaches their late teens or early twenties, it is likely that they have had numerous coaches.  I had many coaches over the years, and they each had very different personalities.  […]

Which Team are You On?

Romans 6:15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means!

Mark 11:  15On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. The average person certainly requires some level of fitness and dexterity to take on most jobs whether that be working construction, or serving tables.  Few professions, however, are as dependent on their body as […]

Rise Again

Matthew 26: 46a Rise! Let us go!  My favourite movie genre is sports movies based on real life stories – stories which typically depict people doing extraordinary things, and overcoming extraordinary challenges.  These stories inspire us to overcome, to rise again when we fall.  I also enjoy watching inspirational videos posted online and if you are […]
