Identity In Christ Alone

1 Timothy 6:17-19

17 Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. 18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good [a]works, to be generous and ready to share, 19 storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.

Hey Coaches and team….first let me say thank you for allowing me to be a part of this coaching staff.  It has been a blessing to me to get to know each of you and the players. 

As soon as I got home, I started looking to see what God has to say about the way I felt.  I felt empty, and miserable inside, but mostly pain in watching our players feel the pain of such a big loss.  The first thing that God put on my heart was that our hope is not in the things of this world.  As Harry Flaherty said before the game….he had it all.  Money, success, and popularity, but there was still an emptiness that NO ONE or NOTHING can fill….except for God.  1 Timothy 6:17 says Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.  While a victory is not necessarily RICHES, many of us come to see our identity and find our fulfillment in our successes, whether it’s riches, or our success on the ball field, or even our careers. At some point, these things will surely let us down. God cares much more about us than the sum total of our accomplishments.  He loves us just because He loves us. 

Another thing that comes to mind comes from the book of James. James 1:2 says…Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  God ALLOWS trials in our lives to grow us up….to mature us.  If you are like me, you hate to lose!  (Just ask my wife!)  But as I have gotten closer to God I am realizing that the difficult times that I have had in my life have HUMBLED me and forced me to depend more on Jesus.  That is a choice!  We have another choice, and that would be to try and deal with the pain in other ways.  Alcohol, drugs, more victories, (just ask a gambler) but at the end of the day, the other things will NEVER give us the real peace that only God, OUR CREATOR can give.  Allow Him to work in you through this loss.

Thank you all again for the opportunity to be a part of such a great team!


Coach Mike McMahon

Hi. I see that you don't update your site too often. I know that writing articles is time
consuming and boring. But did you know that there
is a tool that allows you to create new articles
using existing content (from article directories or other blogs from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new articles are unique and pass the copyscape
test. You should try miftolo's tools
