Theological Thursday

Wow! who would of thought that these guys could ever get serious! They are some of my best friends who mean the world to me. They are not just guys, they are the Highland Park Cross Country Team!

One day, a buddy on the team and I were talking about his beliefs, for he is Jewish and being the curious man that I am, (as well as being somewhat of a theologian), we really got into it and discussed all about his beliefs and I got to ask him some questions and then thats when the fun began. He in turn started firing questions to me about my faith in Christ and right there on that Thursday coming home from practice, a seed was planted in his life because I had the awesome opportunity to share the gospel of Christ with him! And we both enjoyed learing about each others faiths. What a great time it was indeed!

The next week rolled by and this kid I will name "Ralph" decided that that conversation that we had on Thursday must continue on, but this time we would make it into a weekly matter. We coined our conversation as a day called "Theological Thursday," and continued on with the learning and questions. Little by little, more guys started putting their beliefs and thoughts up for discussion, and our group doubled to four the next week.

Soon the whole team joined in for Theological Thursday and every week I get to share my faith now with the whole team!!!! That my friends.. is a miracle only made possible by JESUS CHRIST.

This really has challenged my faith and spurred my growth in Christ for I know now that every Thursday 'Ralph' will have a question for me, and I must answer, meaning that I must dive in the word each week so I can be sharp as a sword and prepared for battle!

Hebrews 12: 4 "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart."

Be encouraged men and never back down from the opportunities that Christ gives you!
