Game Changers | #1 Draft Pick

#1 DRAFT PICK

All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along.  ‭‭
Galatians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

According to bleacherreport.com the draft crests the biggest game changers in the NFL.

“The 2019 NFL draft is loaded with game-changer prospects, much like last year’s class was. A year ago, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield stumped defenses with his mobility and arm once he made his NFL debut. Quarterback Lamar Jackson lifted the Baltimore Ravens to the playoffs with his rushing acumen. New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley caused defenders to miss as often as he bulldozed over them. Shockingly, explosive pass-rushers should keep even calm-and-collected veterans like Tom Brady up at night before games. The natural blend of talent, athleticism and upside make the prospects the biggest game-changing players of this year’s draft class.”

Number one draft picks are the best of the best. They make all the difference in the game. Football is still a team sport but a high-performing athlete can make the difference between winning and losing. In the Christian movement, the Apostle Paul was a “game changer.” Paul began reaching out to communities outside the region of Jerusalem. He also focused on reaching gentiles instead of just Jews. Paul also helped plant churches and raise up new pastoral leadership. Paul’s letters were game changing because they inspired leaders but also instructed them on the basic doctrines of the faith.  Jesus was THE game changer but Paul was key to spreading the good news of the kingdom throughout the world.

We need to remember that we are called to be game changers as well. We are called to change the lives of our families by strengthening one another in faith. We are called to witness to our friends for Jesus. As a church, we are also called to change the lives of our community by reaching out to the poor. May we all see ourselves as number one draft picks chosen by God to change the world.

In Christ’s Love and Service,
Pastor Paul
