“Whoever lives like this will always stand strong” – Psalm 15
Dictionaries define a champion as one who “defeats or surpasses all rivals in competition.” Champions are the last ones standing. It’s time for the sport of fitness to crown the last ones standing as individual and team champions. What qualities will these competitors need to possess to win? What does it take to be the last one standing in the CrossFit Games?
God defines His champions the same way. According to Psalm 15, God’s champions are the ones who “will always stand strong.” Even though the challenges of life knock them down, they always rise again. They will be the last ones standing. “…though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again” (Proverbs 24:16)
