Sports can be loud. From the screaming fans to the coaches and athletes who shout passionately, the noise can sometimes be deafening.
The 2019 theme of “Let’s Go!” is meant to be said with emphasis because it’s not only the rally cry for many athletes, coaches and teams, but it also should be the goal of Christians when they consider Christ’s call to the Great Commission.
In Mathew 28:18-20, Jesus says, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
“Our 2019 theme of ‘Let’s Go!’ reminds us that Jesus is straightforward when He calls anyone who has repented of their sins and believed in Him to action,” said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. “It’s not merely a suggestion. No, Jesus is exhorting us to go and make disciples. He challenges us, just as He did His disciples, to break the huddle, get in the game and run the play. Presenting the gospel and teaching God’s word to make disciples who make disciples. Together, we can see the world transformed by Jesus Christ. With confidence—Let’s Go—through the power of spirit and the promise of Christ’s presence.”
