Sports done for the glory of God?
“Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
Welcome to the Nebraska FCA team blog where we want to meet for the purpose of discussing what doing sports to the glory of God looks like.
There are two ways of doing sports; man’s way and God’s way. Doing sports man’s way is an attempt to bring glory to man; it’s the effort to exalt self. The sportsworld overflows with this way; it’s the natural, normal way of doing things. On the other hand, doing sports God’s way is God-exalting. This is not normal and because it is not normal, it requires an intentional thinking and planning and training on the part of the athlete, the coach, even the fan in order to bring glory to God.
So what does sports look like when it’s done God’s way? We’re glad you asked! Join us as we hear from our learned FCA staff and current coaches and athletes who are all on the journey to live it out. We pray that this would become a place for other coaches and athletes to come and hear from God through His Word as we search the Scriptures and work to live them out in the sportsworld.
