An excerpt from yesterday SuperBowl message at The Landing...
You know what makes up a Super Bowl type of believer? Let me give you three things that you will always find in a champion…a Super Bowl believer.
Desire…they sincerely want to be the best that they can be and make Coach Jesus proud. Making the coach happy is more important than hearing the cheer of the fans!
Bible teacher J. Vernon McGee once said, “the highest desire that can possess any heart is a longing to see God”. That desire for God to show up in a big way fuels our passion for everything we engage in.
Discipline…is the fuel of success. A muscle needs to be stretched, torn, mended and fueled. We do too. Paul talked about us going through strict training…beating our body…feeling the burn. When you feel the burn, things are about to turn!
Desire and Discipline are nothing without the last…a Destination.
Every player on the Broncos and the Seahawks had a destination to be in Jersey at this time. Paul said “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Phil 3:14 niv
He realized that to reach the destination he would have to lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily prohibits the progress forward.
If you are going to be a champion you need desire, discipline and a destination. So are you in it to win it!
