Kerry McCoy & JD Bergman - Compete with all you've been given.
Updated: Mar 1
Kerry McCoy, 2-time Olympian, and an all-time wrestling great in the US, spoke with JD about having a biblical mindset when it comes to competing.
God is in control. He gave us the gifts that we have. He asks us to use them to the fullest of our abilities. So we can be free to give everything we have, be it our time, training, or perseverance- for the glory of God. We don't need to worry about the outcomes. He has those well in hand. (See Romans 8:28)
Here are some of the verses that JD and Kerry were referring to in their video: - 1 Cor 9:24-27 is a great verse for self-discipline- to run in such a way as to get the prize. - 1 Cor 10:31 - that whatever we do, we should do it all for the glory of God. - Col 3:23-24 reminds us that whatever we do we should work at it with all of our heart, as we are serving the Lord and not human masters.
Thanks for the great reminders Kerry, and putting yourself out there to be an #inspiration.
Be blessed all - and go be a blessing!
Be inspired...and go be an inspiration!
