Olympic God

Around the world, millions of people are watching the Olympics and cheering for their nation. How does God feel, though? I’m sure God loves the Olympics; he probably loves watching them because people are getting together to show their skills in sports. And God gave them those skills. For a reason, too — to spread the Gospel.

The real question is how do they reach out to people? One: they have to be saved, of course. Two: since they are well known, they can speak to a lot of people and tell them about Christ; they have to take the opportunities they’ve been given. Three: they let the people decide what to believe.

Just today, United States sprinters Kellie Wells and Dawn Harper in the 100m repeatedly thanked God, saying he was good to NBC reporter Louis Johnson after the race, giving God the glory in a great example of this.

All Olympians have at least a few fanatics that will listen to the Olympian they love and adore; those fans can see the truth behind that Christian Olympian’s words. It’s important that we use the power that God has given us, like an interview on TV, to the benefit of his kingdom and glory.

We all know that there are people who want to challenge God, and Christian beliefs, it’s kind of pointless when God is all powerful. The Pharisees in the new testament kept challenging Jesus — and they kept losing.

 The Pharisees challenged him, “Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.”

 Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going.””      John 8: 13-14 

Those verses show that nothing can challenge God–no Olympian or religious leader. Nothing can challenge God’s power.

Also note that God can do any thing, and he gave the idea of any sport to the guy who created it, and the ability to do it as well. Even if a Christian athlete loses in the Olympics, it’s for God’s purposes, and we all know who wins in the end.
