I’m a wannabe basketball player. Having watched the NCAA men’s basketball championship last night, I’m all the more convinced that I’m a mere wannabe when it comes to playing basketball.
I also wannabe other things, but nothing more than a genuine follower of Jesus, full stop. And for this goal, I have endless hope for the sole reason that Jesus has given me the Holy Spirit, as my Helper, in this supreme goal. Indeed, the closer I draw to the Holy Spirit:
the more I make choices that reflect Jesus,
my conversations are filled with truth & love,
my perspective changes to a divine outlook rather than filtered by my flesh.
Would you join me in this adventure to be a Jesus wannabe?
Gal 4:19, ” . . . until Christ be formed in you.”
You may not be a college basketball fan, so just in case you wondered, today is not only the 1st day of Spring, but it’s also the launch of a 64 team tournie of the “best” college basketball teams, with some outrageous skill & heart. Personally, this is my absolute favorite sports season of the whole year & yes, I’ve filled out my tournament bracket.
For those of you interested in knowing what kind of spiritual correlation connects with March Madness, I’m still trying to figure that out – maybe something about idolatry, endurance, confidence, dedication, teamwork, commitment, . . . . . 🙂
Happy March Madness!! Let the games begin – YAHOOO!!!
