Just as a gifted, seasoned coach can turn a mediocre group of athletes into a championship club, Jesus does the same for his followers—infinitely more so!
The Bible gives many metaphors for the Church: It is like a human body (1 Corinthians 12) with its many different parts and purposes or like “living stones” being built by Christ, the Cornerstone, into a “spiritual house” (1 Peter 2). It is called God’s field (1 Corinthians 3:9).
But a more contemporary metaphor that dynamically captures what it means for Christians to be united to Jesus—and to each other in him—is a SPORTS TEAM.
Are you on the King’s team?
Then this series is for you!
The big difference is that Jesus is not just our coach. He comes among us as our KING to set up his throne in our midst in order to “play HIS game” in us and through us, up close and personal. He claims us for the KING’S TEAM.
We always win playing on the King’s team! Our personal walk with Jesus as Lord gets powerfully transformed because of this profound fact:
What happens with the whole team—
our triumphs or losses together as the Body of Christ—
directly impacts every individual player on the team.
In this series, David Bryant shares winning secrets with players on the King’s team. Join him to discover how to experience a proactive involvement with King Jesus on his team right now—in a “game” with eternal repercussions!
