Each year the Fellowship of Christian Athletes chooses a theme that all our activities and events will be centered around. We’re especially excited about this year’s theme: EVERY!
As a coach or athlete, every rep adds up. Every practice matters. Every play counts. You give all your efforts and energies in everything you have to your sport, team, and even fans. Oftentimes, it’s the world’s approval that fuels the enthusiasm and passion you have to be the best at your sport.
“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.” (Ephesians 1:3)
What’s the truth we want you to experience this year?
The truth is, we already have everything we need in Christ. It’s His approval we should be after and for His glory that we should be putting on our jersey or picking up our playbook and whistle. When we realize this, we are able to live every day as unto the Lord and receive the spiritual blessings He has in store for us.
The coach and athlete story of Every can be seen below:
- Once Upon A Time… I lived for the benefits and applause of the world.
- And Every Day… I chased after gaining approval in all the wrong places.
- Until One Day… I recognized that by being in a relationship with Christ, I now have everything I’ve ever wanted and needed.
- And Now… I live every day to become more like Him and receive the spiritual blessings He has in store for me.
Within the overarching Every narrative, we zoom in on focused areas each quarter that shares important truths. Each quarterly component concentrates on a smaller theme within the big picture and walks us through how to engage in these areas.
EVERYTHING IN CHRIST
Striving for perfection and purpose will always lead us to God. He loves us and He created us. God wants to use us, and He gave us everything we need for a full life.
EVERYONE THROUGH CHRIST
God picked us, even when we were doing wrong. We all need to be saved. Everyone can be saved through Jesus.
EVERY WAY LIKE CHRIST
It’s impossible to reach our goals alone, we need support. In addition to getting help from others, Christ has given us God’s Word, the Holy Spirit, and His Church.
EVERY DAY WITH CHRIST
God has called each of us to a mission. In order to fulfill it, we must prepare in advance and have the right equipment.
We have everything we need in Christ!
