Sport and the Mission of God

Christians understand the mission of God to be central to God’s relationship to humans and his creation. The trajectory of God’s mission is seen throughout Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. We also understand that all our life is to be offered as a living sacrifice for Jesus’s glory, with our minds transformed for God’s service. However, we need help to apply this to specific domains of life. This series of devotions will demonstrate, through the lens of sport, how God’s mission can be at work in and through us in the everyday life we live. The hope is that whether you are sporty or not, you will recognise the calling on all of us to be kingdom disciple- makers in the paths and passions God has shaped us with for his mission.
