Football Players Praying

Did you know the NFL wanted to get rid of  football players holding hands, kneeling, and praying after games?  They threatened to fine them.  Many of the players said they would continue to pray and pay the fine.

So, let's get this straight.  They can show all sorts of filthy commercials and halftime shows but heaven forbid if some players want to get together at the end of a game and pray.

Why are people offended when football players pray?  How come the networks purposely try to avoid showing them praying?  How come people want to get rid of crosses, the Ten Commandments, nativity scenes, etc.?

It is because anything holy is obnoxious to them and a threat to the world of darkness in which we live.  It makes them uncomfortable because when light shines in the darkness, it exposes their sin.  Many hate anything that represents Jesus, godliness, holiness, righteousness, and salvation.

Truth makes people uncomfortable.  Are you willing to speak truth and make others uncomfortable?   If you are speaking Truth, make sure you are living it.  People are tired of hypocrites.  They want to see what Jesus really looks like and they should be able to see Him when they look at us.  

A righteous life is a powerful life.  We can have a righteous life.  When we believe, we become new creatures in Christ and we have everything we need for life and godliness.  

 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; 
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matthew 6:22
