Christians Must Play Hurt

Someone asked Roger Staubach, former quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, about football injuries. "How do you keep on keeping on if you're playing professional football?"

Roger said something important: "If you're not playing hurt, you're not playing football."

It's exactly the same way with the Christian faith. If you're not living it hurt, you're probably not living the Christian faith.
