In so many ways, sports can help us gain a deeper understanding of the race we are a part of as followers of Jesus. The teamwork, dedication, and ups and downs are reflective of the Christian journey we have embarked on. As athletes, we learn to appreciate the hard-fought battles, where we gave all we had for the thrill of hoisting the victor's trophy. Spiritually speaking, we are in a much greater competition -- a competition for our souls and the souls of humanity. The stakes are higher and the cost is greater. The reward, however, will be a crown that will last forever. As an athlete, staying faithful to God until the very end is not an option -- we must finish the race. As you read Life in the Trenches: The Joys and Challenges of Christians in Sports, you will be reminded that it is through God, and God only, that we are able to be victorious.
