The Fearless Champion

Written By: Chad Griffin
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear.” 1 John 4:18

By leaving the comfort and security of home, He entered a fierce competition against a powerful dark force. The greatest ever born, yet was willing to be nothing so we could be something. He touched the infectious skin of a leper to heal this isolated captive. He went the extra mile, in the heat, just to redeem an outcast’s life. Misunderstood, tempted, rejected, threatened, abandoned, betrayed, mocked, yet He stood firm. Badly bleeding, He walked a mountain alone, while carrying the weight of a world that stood against Him. Though outnumbered by His opponents, He never gave in. He never gave up. That is our constant message through Athletics. You are going to be down, but through Jesus Christ, win or lose, there is always a greater battle to fight. The fight to impact a world around us for someone that gave everything: that is the ultimate goal.

The love for our teammates should be like the love that Christ showed us--unconditional, without limits. When we become fearless in truly caring about others we become a Champion in the way Christ commanded us.
