Athletes are rooted in numerous principles, which help them build a foundation of success.
Here are three of those critical principles.
1. Hard work and discipline – Athletes often need to work hard and be disciplined in their training to improve their skills and perform at their peak.
2. Goal setting – Setting goals is vital to an athlete’s journey to personal achievement. Athletes often set short-term and long-term goals, some being easier and others more challenging, to help them stay motivated and focused on achieving their objectives.
3. Resilience – Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversities. Resilience helps competitors stay motivated and keeps them working towards their goals.
In contrast, here are three things we can do as believers to stay rooted in our Christian faith.
1. Pray – Prayer is how we break the seal on the heavens. God answers us according to his time, though, not ours. We have to remember that when we pray, we must trust that He knows best, not us. Sometimes that may mean we get an answer we didn’t want, but if we don’t give up on the Lord, we will see that the answer is for our benefit.
2. Study Scripture – The Bible is God’s Word. The power in the Bible is beyond anything that we can understand. But we do know some things. For example, when the Devil tried to tempt Jesus, Jesus quoted Scripture in response. That tells us that the Bible isn’t some mere book but a sacred book endowed with holy power.
3. Share Our Testimony of Jesus – When we share our faith with others or fellow believers, our testimony can change hearts and souls. We should never discount the ability testifying of God has and the miracles that can result from sharing it.
1. Write down another way to be rooted in your Christian faith.
2. Commit Ephesians 3:18 to memory.
