Know Your Role


"For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift..."
-Ephesians 2:8


Colin Falls of Notre Dame had his day in the limelight. Not only did he score 23 points by hitting seven 3's, but he saved the game by taking a charge in the last 20 seconds of the game. Falls understood his role for the game against Boston College and helped to knock them from the ranks of the undefeated.

Paul was one believer who knew his role with Christ. Though he could have boasted about the great things he was doing for Christ, he understood his place. He knew it was by grace that he was saved and that it wasn't anything that he did to bring glory to himself. He was honored to do his part in building God's kingdom. Paul did what it took to get God's word to the people who needed to hear the message. He knew his role.

Falls did big things in the game against Boston College, but it was the little thing he did that made the biggest difference. Though he was a big-time scorer in the game, it was the taken charge that made the difference. You may have the chance to share your faith with hundreds or thousands of people one day and reach many people, but it may be the person right next to you who needs to hear about Jesus today.

Know your role with Christ. He wants you to be available to share about Him at any time. After finding your role, it is up to you to accept it and make it happen. Make it happen for Him.


1. Do you know your role in your sport?
2. Have you accepted your role in Christ?
3. Today, how can you start to make it happen for Him?
