Protection has long been the by-word for parents. Inserting ourselves in situations when our children are at risk is a natural and necessary response to threat.
BLOCKING OUT is an uncompromising part of many sport competitions. In basketball it is called a screen, in football players block a pass or kick, and soccer goalies throw themselves into the path of the ball to thwart a goal.
"Blocking well is a combination of body positioning and timing," Rob Heidger, pro beach volleyball player.
To block safely a player must take the right stance and successfully insert themselves into the path of the opponent’s player or ball.
"Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm." Abraham Lincoln
Christ performed the ultimate block. Standing in the course of history, God blocked sin providing a way to Himself through Christ’s death.
“Once you were alienated from God…But now He has reconciled you through Christ’s death.” Colossians 1:21-22
As Christ ones we are also called to block out. By taking the right stance and putting our feet in the right places we will stand firm as we insert ourselves in the path of evil...ready to the hit for the cause of Christ.
Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58
We give those around us the opportunity to experience Christ by BLOCKING OUT Satan’s ploys… and history is changed from defeat to victory!
BLOCK OUT SO OTHERS CAN OPT IN!
