The Perfect Play Call


"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ."
-Philemon 1:6 (NIV)


All coaches want to make that perfect play call. That play that will be a guaranteed score. The play that there is just no stopping. And every athlete wants to be the one who runs the perfect play.

As athletes, your coach may tell you to visualize running every play perfectly. You might spend those pre-game moments alone in a quiet area just watching the game play out in your mind. And every one of us sees the same game play through our heads. . . The game is tied, and it is up to us to make the winning shot. We have the ball at the end of the game, and only the perfect play will win it all. Well, we all know that there is no perfect play. Things come up. Things usually don't go exactly how we planned.

But there is one Coach who gives us the perfect play call every time. Paul relayed the perfect play from God to Philemon in the passage above, and that same play call is still perfect today. That call? To actively share our faith.


1. Are you actively sharing your faith?
2. With whom do you share it?
3. If you are not actively sharing your faith, how can you begin?


Matthew 9:37-38, 28:16-20
Mark 16:15-18
Luke 10:2
Acts 19:8-10


"Lord, I pray that You would place people in front of me who need to hear Your salvation message. Give me the words that You know they need to hear. Lord, You gave me this life. Please take it and use it to build Your Kingdom here on this earth. Use me as Your servant, taking me where You know Your message of salvation needs to be heard."
