Willing Sacrifice

I heard a great quote about the participants in the annual Army/Navy football game. This statement was made by John Trainor, a police captain in New Jersey, and the father of Cadet running back John Trainor. He said, “It’s the only game that everyone who’s playing is willing to die for everyone who’s watching it.”

That’s an amazing thought!

Here’s another wonderful thought—“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”—Romans 5:6-8.
