Your Purpose

Chariots of Fire is the powerful 1981 movie that follows the life of two British track athletes and their competition at the 1924 Olympics.  It is probably best known for Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who refused to run in his best event, the 100yard run, because the heats were being held on a […]

Honouring those in Authority

Romans 13:1-3 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those […]

These leaders would have been the example […]

Sports in the Bible

1 Corinthians 9: 24 “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” Many people see the Bible as an ancient document that has no relevance to our lives today. The wise King Solomon knew better […]
