“I always do the things that please my Father” (John 8:29 KJV)
By nature, we possess a strong desire to be more successful than others. Even so, as with any earthly goal, popularity often brings emptiness and a proud heart. A glimpse into the world of sports sheds light upon the danger of intense competitiveness.
Currently, a popular cliché consumes our sports industry. In detail the letters G O A T stand for the ‘Greatest Of All Time’ by the amount of wins over losses.
Notably, it began with an arrogant boxer named Cassius Clay. By changing his name to Muhammed Ali, he hoped to intimidate or rather, bully opponents.
Ali’s mantra became “I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee because I am the greatest”. In reality, achieving GOAT status fades with the morning dew. Inevitably, stardom vanishes quickly and the next ‘greatest’ takes the spotlight, if only for a fleeting moment.
To contrast, contemplate with me if you will. What made Jesus the greatest LEADER of all time? Two words: “He Followed” He obeyed His Father’s plan all the way to Calvary’s cross. Like a faithful Father, God never left Jesus alone to fend for Himself. Even while hanging from a bloody cross, God’s spirit comforted His Son.
“He who sent me is true and reliable and I tell the world only the things that I have heard (learned) from Him” John 8:26 (Amp)
As we follow our Leader Jesus, we learn the art of influencing and teaching others the word of God. We expound the glory of a permanent home in heaven. Therefore, we will not lose heart but stay the course of our appointed mission.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations and I am with you to the end”
