Ephesians 3:11 


Champions are driven by merit. They believe that hard work and dedication are the keys to success, both for themselves and for the causes they believe in. They are not afraid to put in the extra effort, even when it’s tough. They know that their hard work will pay off in the end.

Champions are also motivated by a higher purpose. They believe that they have a responsibility to use their talents and abilities to make a difference in the world. They are not content to just sit on the sidelines and watch things happen. They want to be part of the solution.

Champions are not afraid to challenge themselves. They know that they can’t achieve their goals without taking risks. They are willing to step outside of their comfort zone and try new things. They know that failure is a part of the learning process, and they don’t let it discourage them.

Bethany Hamilton, a world champion surfer and Christian, wasn’t afraid to challenge herself. And her challenges were much more difficult than most. At 13, a shark attacked Bethany, resulting in the loss of her arm. Hamilton attributed her ability to relearn surfing and eventually becoming a champion to her Faith in God.

Tim Tebow, who became known for “Tebowing” while he played for the NFL, showed he was a champion for Jesus. He didn’t care about what kind of criticism he received, what mattered to him was spreading God’s message through his role as a professional football player. He used one of the world’s biggest stages to make a difference with his heart focused on Christ.

God wants us to be champions for Him. When we do what he asks and show our love for him, we will always be in the winner’s circle.
