WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?
The most important question ever asked of me was in September 1966.
“Coach, before I leave, can I ask you a question?”
“Yes, of course,” I answered.
Thinking I was getting another basketball question, Dyson floored me when asked, “What do you think about Jesus Christ?”
Buried deep in my subconscious mind, organized religion was a cemetery of bad experiences; 20 plus years of negativity. Buried, never to resurface until someone or some new experience dredged them up to the conscious mind.
At another time, Lord willing, I will share what is in the grave on the capstone of my organized religion cemetery which has become a resurrected victory.
Dyson’s question was uniquely profound. It was not an informational set answer question. No, it was an elegant personal question that dove into the essence of my existence.
I had no answer! As soon as Dyson left my office. I called Susie to say, “I think I have found someone who can help me.”
Meet My Head Coach gives a detailed account of how I eventually discovered who Jesus was, is, and forever will be.
I close today’s Word of Hope with an elegant question that I have asked thousands of people, “Have you made the wonderful discovery of knowing Jesus personally?”
If not, why not?
