Back On Top

Press-Citizen / Matthew Holst

The Iowa Hawkeyes are back on top of the wrestling world. After dominating the sport for so many years the Hawks are national champions for the first time since 2000. Leading this resurgance has been head coach Tom Brands. The article on Brands in The Iowa City Press-Citizen I thought was very interesting. Here is one thing that Coach Brands had to say:
"When I talk about lifestyle, that's what these guys are doing," Brands said. "It's them buying into themselves and believing and knowing they have to live that lifestyle and become fanatics about a certain standard every day."
Perhaps we in the church would do well with remembering that very thing. We need to be fanatical about following Jesus. Just something to ponder.
