I love basketball and football. When I was growing up I wanted to be like two athletes. Randall Cunningham and Magic Johnson. They both were my examples of how to play the sports I love. In life I had an example as well. An example that taught me how to love, be respectful, be a hard worker and look out for others. That example was my dad. He taught me how to be a man. But the one thing He taught me that has become the most important quality in my life is an understanding of who Jesus is. A man unlike anyone that has ever walked the face of the earth. The Bible says,
Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
Tempted like we are “Yet without sin.” Jesus was a man that people were attracted to. People couldn’t believe the way He taught and handled situations. He is the perfect example of how to love, have compassion and look out for others. He is the greatest example of what we as humanity should be.
I want to invite you to come and learn more about this man. An example that is one to be followed. All these other men changed me for the better. But Jesus makes me something I never thought was possible. He makes me want to be like Him.
John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.
