Increase Week in Review 2/27-3/3

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


Monday Eagles Chaplain Ted Winsley talked about the extremes that we reach when we fail to recognize our true Source:


“A lot of people miss why Jesus came to earth. He didn’t come just to save you, He didn’t come just so that you don’t have to go to hell—although those are wonderful byproducts—He came to introduce us to the Father. Understanding the love of God our Father is the single most important, Kingdom-foundational principle of our faith.”


Tuesday Former NFL running back Joshua Vaughan talked about what it looks like to have a healthy fear of God:


“We have to remember Who it is that we are talking to in our prayers—Who it is that we serve. I don’t ever want to take what Christ has done for me for granted. Daily I need to remind myself of the power of the Almighty God so that I maintain the right perspective, but I also need to remember and focus on the grace and love that He has for me.”


Wednesday We talked with former Major League first baseman Adam LaRoche about his faith journey, how he’s living in the increase of Christ, and the mentors that have impacted his life. Here’s what he had to say:


“Today my biggest fear isn’t whether or not I’m going to hell, I know where I’m going. Now my biggest fear is whether or not others around me are going to hell. I never want to find out that because I didn’t have enough courage to talk to people about Christ, they are not spending eternity with the Savior. When I meet Jesus face to face, I don’t want Him to say, ‘You’re in, but look at how many opportunities you missed to share Me with these people who haven’t heard the truth?’”


Thursday New York Jets running back Matt Forte shared the importance of putting the phone down:


“It’s easy to get lost in social media, getting caught up in everyone else’s lives, but becoming caught up in the lives of my kids is so much more rewarding. No matter what they like to do—dancing, playing sports, or just being silly—I want to be interested in that too.”


Friday New York Yankees left fielder Matt Holliday talked about what it feels like to step Into the Unknown:


“You never really know what to expect until you get there; until you jump in and hit the ground running, you can only speculate about what the next season will be like. But one thing I am sure of is that God has prepared us for this change—He’s made it very clear that this is where we are supposed to be right now.”
