Increase Week in Review 10/31-11/4

Want to catch up on the latest articles by the pro’s from the past week? Here’s what they had to say:


Monday Cincinnati Reds pitcher JJ Hoover shared how excited he is to begin serving God in a completely different way:


“This is a completely different platform than the one I have in baseball, but both arenas are equally important to me because these are the places where God has called me to serve Him. Years ago, I had no idea that I would be a farmer, but I’m very thankful that God has put this on my heart.”


Tuesday Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson shared about his quest for justice:

“In seeking justice, I have seen God’s character become more and more real to me. When I read the above passage in Jeremiah, I see that God is not on the Left, and He’s not on the Right, He’s everywhere, and He desires to see justice won for all people.”


Wednesday St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has found been challenged in his faith this year through a community of accountability:


“Before this year, it’s been easier to grow in my relationship with Christ during the offseason. That’s when I can have a “normal” life, with a routine schedule, able to go to church and Bible studies regularly with my family. During the season, it is easier to get caught up in the performance aspect of my job, riding the highs and lows of the game. This year has been a really cool opportunity for me to have accountability and structure to read God’s Word every day.”


Thursday Cincinnati Bengals Chaplain LaMorris Crawford asked the question, “What is Your Profit?”


“Jesus’ purpose doesn’t stop with the call for us to deny ourselves; He also calls us to action. He tells us to take up our cross and follow Him—we enter into a partnership when we walk with Jesus. We don’t just give up our lives and then sit on our butts, we have to follow Him.”


Friday Former MLB pitcher Dave Dravecky talked about the Power of Words:


“While my flesh will want to fight and continue acting in pride, the Holy Spirit within me convicts me and leads me to use my words in a very different way. When I am able to respond to others in love, using my speech for the glory of God and edification of others, I know the Spirit of God is at work in me. This is the supernatural power that Christ talks about when He sent His Spirit to take over. When we do not let the Holy Spirit guide our speech, we minimize His power within us.”
