Increase Week in Review 11/14-11/18

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


Monday Bengals Chaplain LaMorris Crawford shared his locker room devotional about Jesus coming after the one:


“If we were able to do open-heart surgery on God, do you know what we’d see? People. God loves people, so much so that He was willing to send His Son to earth to die for them all. If that isn’t the greatest picture of love, then I don’t know what is.”


Tuesday We talked with former Major League Baseball player, Matt E Diaz, about how he’s living in the increase of Christ, his faith journey, and the mentors that have impacted his life:


“Faith has given me alternative motivations and eliminated a lot of my insecurities. I work differently, I parent differently, I husband differently, I just live differently. If I truly believe what I say I believe, no area of my life can be the same. It is a daily battle to live this faith, but it is one well worth fighting.”


Wednesday Chicago Bears cornerback Brandon Boykin shared what it’s like to stand firm in the face of your biggest fear:


“When things seemed impossibly frustrating, Tess and I sat down and reevaluated the ways that we could get through this. We could sit and talk about how unfair it was or we could stand firm in our faith and follow the example of what Christ did in crisis: We could trust that God is in control and has a plan for our future.”


Thursday Former NFL running back Joshua Vaughan shared how he is looking back to look forward to the good things God has for his family:


“As a family, we want to discern what God is calling us to do with our time, our resources, and our ministry. We want to make sure we’re always being faithful with what God has given us while going after the things He has called us to so that we can make the biggest possible impact for His kingdom.”


Friday Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Steven Souza shared his excited anticipation, as well as his fear, for raising his son in a culture that is contrary to the Gospel:


“Parenting is a huge responsibility; we need to lean on the Lord for strength and guidance in every situation as we raise our son. I know that the more I lean on what the Father wants him to be, instead of what I think I want him to be, the greater the man he will become.”
