Adrian Peterson NFL Player Stands for Jesus
John, Greg and Pat discuss Christian NFL most valuable player Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson’s most recent comment he made to “Monday Morning Quarterback”. One of the things he said was after a game that one of the linebackers from the opposing team came to him and said “Adrian, what are you taking, what are you juicing” implying he was using steroids. Adrian replied by telling him that he is, “juicing on the blood of Jesus”. Faith is what is what got to me this point.” Many times people are looking for many reasons for why things are happening and what you are doing to make things happen. If you are a Christian, it’s not about a bag of tricks or formulas. It’s about abiding with God, living for Him, and walking in faith with action that proves your faith in God.
Time to Fight for Those who have Fought for US; Honor
Greg, John and Pat discuss the importance of fighting for those who have fought for us. There are many soldiers who have sacrificed much. They have submitted themselves to training and to their deployment and who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan in recent history. Many have returned home wounded, having lost limbs and some have even given their lives. They encourage us that whenever we, as Americans, have the chance to honor soldiers who have fought for our freedom and for the Constitution, to take the time to honor them. Just like David in Biblical times rose up to stand with the nation of Israel when Israel fought the Philistines and Goliath because of his service he was greatly honored by the king. We need to remember this and do the same. Let us stand with them. Our pledge is to God and country. Dear God, end abortion send revival.
Living in Peace in the Midst of the Struggle
Greg, John and Pat discuss how we can live in peace in the midst of struggle. We have to ask ourselves did Jesus have a life of peace. Did the disciples live a life of peace? They continue discuss how it’s not about peace for peace sake but instead peace in the midst of reality, doing, producing, and meeting the demands of reality. The peace of God is on us. Our environment doesn’t affect our peace. Jesus learned obedience by the things he suffered. We can’t believe the lies that tell us that if we please our flesh we will have peace. True peace comes when your flesh is not comfortable. There is another lie that says if you struggle it must not be God. They continue to discuss that you can’t blame God, the government or others. It’s going to take integrity, diligence and true peace. You must be willing to do what’s right even when it hurts.
