Let me tell you why we do it.
Because we were born to play.
Because it’s in our blood and in our bones.
Because God gave us talents, passions and opportunities,
And when we’re playing sport,
We know we were made for this.
Yet we spoil it.
We don’t play the way God wants us to.
We so often use sport to serve ourselves:
To earn love, identity, glory, security, success, approval for ourselves.
We rejected God,
We try to replace Him and face the consequences.
But God loved us and reached out to us.
He showed his unique love through his son Jesus,
Who lived among us, who died for us so we can be forgiven,
To free us from our sin.
Who rose up from death and offers us new life,
A new relationship with God, for everyone who returns to Him.
