Matt Holliday Video Study – Part I


“…if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.”
-Romans 10:9-10

1. In your sport, how much pressure do you feel to produce good stats?
2. Where does that pressure come from?
3. Read Romans 10:9-10. According to God’s Word, what must we do to be saved?
4. According to this verse, does our performance have anything to do with our salvation?
5. God’s love for us is unconditional, meaning it is not based on our performance. No matter what we do or don’t do, He will love us just the same. Based on this truth, what does that say about our athletic performance?
6. Have you accepted God’s love for you, or are you still striving to earn it?


Psalm 139
Jeremiah 31:3
