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 are Jesus mighty team
We are champions of the Lord
Through His death we’ve won the victory
Yes, Satan’s lost for sure.
All for One and one for all.
We will answer to the call.
With Jesus as the Captain
We’ll kick the winning score.
You’ll hear the mighty roar.
