Following Christ whatever the cost

31 Aug

Drafted: Why Chris Norman Said No to the NFL is an encouraging video about following Christ. It is the testimony of Chris Norman, star linebacker for the Michigan State Spartans. After graduation, he turned down the NFL to enter seminary and become a pastor.

I found the video especially encouraging as it dovetailed nicely with the series I have been preaching on the life of Abraham. Like Abraham, Chris felt God calling him to leave behind the security of a familiar life. In Chris’ case, it meant the riches and status football would bring. Friends told him he was making a mistake, but he felt certain he should follow Christ and invest in eternity.

Great story.
