Living Inside Out

As athletes and coaches, we understand the meaning of discipline. Our lives are filled with early morning workouts and late nights in the gym. We sacrifice whatever it takes to reach our goals. We know that if we work harder than our opponents, we have a better chance of winning.

Commitment and discipline are necessary for athletic success, but what happens when it manifests into a performance-driven mentality that permeates every aspect of our lives? What happens when it spills over into our faith? We amass a checklist of spiritual circuits to accomplish each week: read our Bibles, pray, attend church, go to Huddle meetings. As long as we continue completing the criteria we've established, we think we are accomplishing our goals as Christians. We are "winning" for Christ ... Aren't we?
