• J.L. JEFFERSON My Personal Testimony...Acceptance and Obedience... FAITH AND FREE THROWS: SEVEN DAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME AND YOUR LIFE·SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2018 As a former elementary school basketball coach, the Holy Spirit spoke to me one day in one of my after-school practice session while working with my players. The message became clearer each day that this is my ministry. As a committed and confessed believer in the death, burial, and Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; I am certain of this one fact, we are all called to minister. It is not necessarily the call to preach behind the podium in church each week. Sometimes God may choose to use you in many other ways. God has provided us all with spiritual gifts. Our challenge is in our acceptance and obedience to serve the Kingdom of God. I believe God has entrusted us with the responsibility of stewardship. Faith and Free Throws: Seven Days to Improve Your Game and Your Life is a book that is designed to challenge to the reader to explore, discover, exercise, and begin to diligently seek to utilize the awesome anointed spiritual gift(s) that our Heavenly Father has generously given to us. The parallel is based upon the fact that this gift has been freely given by our CREATOR; and just like the free throw, the shot has no time constraints, no defense is allowed from any other player; all you have to do is take full advantage of the opportunity and make your shot count! It is the only opportunity provided in the game where you can either hit or miss. God has given us the supreme sacrifice by sending His only Son as the propitiation, and the mediator for our sins, both past and present. Just like that free throw; all you have to do is ACCEPT the gift of SALVATION! “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;”(Romans 3:25), (1 John 2:2), (1 John 4:10). Ultimately, the big question becomes; Since both of these opportunies are offered to us openly; Why do so many of us miss the shot? Please accept this introduction as my personal and cordial invitation for you to visit and provide your comments and dialog on my blog located at www.johnnyjefferson.com
