Lou Holz is a former American football player, coach, and analyst. You may have seen his videos, speeches, etc. on social media. He’s the type of person I would like to meet some day. He exudes an attitude, motivation, and faith in Jesus Christ that is magnetic. In a speech that I recently saw him give at a graduation, he said this: Want to be happy for a hour-eat a steak, Want to be happy for a day-play golf, Want to be happy for a week-take a cruise, and Want to be happy for a lifetime-put your faith in Jesus Christ: You can’t take your money to heaven but you can take your children.

“Through Jesus, therefore; let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess His name.” Hebrews 13:15 Jesus knew that one of the real tests of your yieldedness to God is our willingness to share with others. If we have no mercy toward others, that is one proof that we have never experienced God’s mercy. Satan does not care how much you theorize about Christianity, or how much you profess to know Christ. What he opposes vigorously is the way you live Christ.

Be bold in what you believe. You don’t have to be a pastor or a Bible scholar to share your beliefs with others. Acts 4:13 says “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these been had been with Jesus.” They had just been with Jesus and relied on God’s help when sharing with others. When sharing your faith with others, know that what you know is enough.

You can make a difference in the world. God really want to use you to do great things for Him. Start by sharing what He has done in your life with others!

Quotes from Lou Holz: Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

I can’t believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.
