GOLD Medal!

In February 1980, the U.S. Olympic hockey team slipped its foot into a glass slipper and walked away with a gold medal at Lake Placid, New York. Those collegians had shocked the world by upsetting the powerful Soviet team, and then they grabbed the championship from Finland while the crowd chanted, “U.S.A.!”  Before his team’s victory over the Soviet Union which advanced them to the finals, the coach of the U.S. hockey team told his players, “You are born to be a player. You are meant to be here at this time. This is your moment.” 

I love to hear of people that know why they are here, what they are born for and their purpose in what they do.  These are the ones that make great strides in achieving great things in this world we live in.  However, to answer the question “what was I born for?’ is to answer the question of your life.  Jesus answered this question of His birth and the answer was “to be a King and to bear witness of the truth.”  (John 18:37).  May you this Christmas realize that the birth of Jesus Christ was to bring you a King to love, serve and follow into His kingdom.  You were born for this!  Pastor Mark
