Thank you Daryl,
True motivation from our Creator. I especially like Isaiah 40:31. How can you read that on not be encouraged. Almost makes me want to workout…almost.
Yours in Christ,
Robert

Hi Daryl — great collection. My fav is Ephesians 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

I wrote a little about the amour over on my site here: http://christianeveryday.com/index.php/weapons-for-the-wrestling-match/ Thank you for this!

I am so impressed by this collection and the Heb 12:11 reminds me that the race is painful but the finish line will make it all worth while. Well done Daryl my friend. Your church is so blessed I am certain to have a godly, biblically wise pastor such as you.

I am struggeling after my 5th grade sons basketball tourny this weekend. In two out of three games three boys did not play at all and in the third game they only played after we were losing by a great amount. Of course one of the boys was my son. The team is part of our school which is a Lutheran school. The coach did apalogize but also made the statement that he did not violate any rules. That broke my heart considering we are Christians and I do not believe this is the attitude we should have. If you have any verses that could help I would be greatful. Thank you.

Thanks Stacie for the comment. Many times, people in life will disappoint us and let us down. It may not even be intentional but it happens. I encourage you to look at Hebrews 13:6 and 1 Peter 5:7. God cares about you and wants you to be encouraged to know that He is with you in every day things in life. He wants to hear our prayers and concerns. Tell God how you feel and ask for His healing touch. I encourage you to talk to the coach and tell him your feelings too.
Blessings,
Daryl

I am well conscious that all athletes including well-beloved for their accomplishments and character (Kurt Angle of pro wrestling) and locally known small-league participants such as “Travo” my friend need Jesus just as much as I do! Humans are human and therefore, need Jesus no matter what type of picture I paint or look at (from another who made it–of how to see life.) The hardest part about trusting in a God who is said to exist through the centuries is admitting that we are sinful, need to change and then what to do to change-trust in John 3:16 from the Christian Bible-ONLY. Jesus was sent from heaven by Father to break us from sin so that we can live rightly and then perfectly right in heaven. I was given a CHOICE when I was eight and I told my ma that I was READY to be saved–from hell that is. Since then I have been on a biblical journey which escalates in good and evil ways. If I were to end up in hell that would be because I made *myself out to be my own worst because I make the choices to lust for things that are foolish. I thank Jesus for EMPOWERING me and giving me so many people to help me—that I need the help to be good because I naturally want things selfishly.

I respect all beliefs of others and their gods as Christ first loved me. I have proofs…my life was spared dozens of times like when in 2002 my snowmobile would not cross the road which a car was using to pass me by on. In a few seconds it did go and I thanked God for erasing my fear. THANK YOU, Jesus. One thing remains: your love. -John 3:16.

Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV11) “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

Emil Posavac September 18, 2013 at 8:48 am

Some sports focus on dominating the opponent–boxing, football, and roller derby, come to mind. Others focus on meeting a standard–gymnastics, figure skating, and mountain climbing come to mind. Do you really believe that sports based on physically dominating the opponent are endorsed by these passages? Really?

It seems that the Beatitudes say something different.

Thanks so much. God bless you!:-)

What a great bible verses!

Gerry January 20, 2015 at 6:02 pm

I need to formulate a theme for our forthcoming intramurals, I ran out of words so I decided to browse the Internet, and in so doing, I chanced upon your website. Could you help me with this? Thanks in advance.

Jack Wellman January 20, 2015 at 8:36 pm

I am not the author of this fine article Gerry but maybe I can help. How about Paul’s admonition to the Philippian church from Phil 3:13-14 “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” So how about “Press on Toward the Goal” or “Toward the goal to win” or “the Goal to win the prize” but these two verses seem applicable and I hope I have at least helped in a small way sir.

Gerry January 20, 2015 at 6:11 pm

By the way, our University theme is, “PCU: Nurturing Faith, Transforming Character and Inspiring Service.”

James 4:10
Humble yourself in the sight of the lord and he will lift you up

Samantha April 20, 2015 at 1:08 pm

These verses are very inspiring! I tape my wrist during soccer games and I like to write verses like these on the tape. I feel like God is giving me strength to play well!

Christian May 1, 2016 at 9:12 pm

I liked them all, but sadly I only get to pick one for confirmation.
