Jesus Christ has given us the model to unleash the champion in us, the model of sacrificial love. Unfortunately, so many run from sacrifice; but, Champions have, no doubt, discovered its infinite value. Every athlete that has had the opportunity to hold a championship trophy up at the end, will never tell you they wish they hadn’t worked that hard. No! They will all tell you that every moment of struggle, of failure, and of sacrifice was worth it. It is worth it to sacrifice to the level of a true champion. It is what we are made for. Sacrifice makes champions. “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.” John 15:13. There is no greater way to the top than to GIVE IT ALL for the person, the family member, the teammate, the friend, the stranger, etc standing next to you. Therefore, be strong and courageous! Never be afraid to give that extra degree in training. Do not sell yourself short for anything less than you were created for. We are made to give 100%, nothing less, not even 99.9%. For it is in that Sacrifice that we can be champions.
