Jesus prayed, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son may glorify You. For You granted Him authority over all people that He might give eternal life to all those You have given Him. Now this is eternal life: that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” (John 17:1-3 NIV)
It certainly has been a blessing being on an NFL team and competing at this level. But as rewarding as that is, it’s not nearly as rewarding as having a relationship with Jesus Christ. There’s no other way to live. This is a mission field, because guys need to be reached. A lot of guys are hurting because they’ve bought into the big lie that they need more and more money, and more and more fame. But a lot of them are empty when they find out this isn’t true.
