Touchdown Jesus – Good News for January 26

26 01 2009

St. Paul’s Letter to Timothy 1: 7

For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for his sake; but bear your share of hardship for the Gospel with the strength that comes from God.

The Daily Path: How often do “the guys” sit around and talk about God in their lives?  It’s easy to talk about a defensive lineman crushing a quarterback. Not so easy to share how God has made a difference in you. When was the last time someone shook your hand in a sports bar and said “Nice to meet you. I’m Catholic. How about you?”

Maybe they do at Notre Dame. “Remember Zacchaeus? Yeah, he was a little dude, but man, that cat could run. 4.3 at the Galilee Scouting Combine.” 

Room to Chat: As you do the laundry this week, ask Jesus if it was easier running around with no socks.
