In a day and age of ‘win at all costs’, it’s incredible refreshing to see a genuine Christian on a national stage who understands what life is all about. It also doesn’t hurt that he is the Head Coach of The University Georgia Bulldog football team, my personal all-time favorite team to cheer for.
“What I do is not who I am. If I become what I do and I become just a football coach, then you’re asking for disaster,” Georgia’s Mark Richt said recently. “My identity is in Christ. I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ. I know that he died for my sin and I am going to heaven when this is all said and done, forever. That gives me peace, no matter what happens here.”
How different would your life be if your identity was grounded in Christ instead of what you do? Maybe today is the day to make the shift!
