Isn’t sport a fantastic part of our lifestyle? When you think about it, there are so many
similarities between a sporting match and our lives as Christians. We are on God’s
mighty team with Jesus as our captain. Satan’s powerful team is constantly
challenging us. It’s hard work resisting his attacks. Each time we sin that’s a goal
to them. But Jesus is our great defender. Through His strength we can rebound. And
Jesus has scored the goals. On the cross he defeated Satan once and for all.
Yes, the match goes on constantly, but we can be sure that we have the ultimate victory
because of Jesus.

Thanks, God, for Aussie rules football and the passion that oozes from these two A.F.L.songs.

We’ve got the power to win, more power than sin.
Come on and live your life, be in it.
We’re forgiven and free, we’ve got the power to be
God’s people, through the Holy Spirit.
We’ll never stop, stop, stop ‘til we’re top,top, top.
Through our lives we’ll tell the mighty story:
how God came to live, through Jesus to give
His love and peace, and life with Him in glory. GOD’S POWER!
