The Gospel in the Ultimate Fighting Championship? YES!!

Here's one of my new favorite Bible verses. I lifted it off of the UFC World Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes' website. Well, it's originally from the Bible, not Matt, but you know what I mean...

1 Timothy 1:15-16 "Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life."

See, this eliminates any boasting or bragging. This reminds me not to judge what others are going through, because I went through my own things. I surely didn't want anyone looking down on me or judging me.

Now, I did some crazy stuff when I was younger. Some things that I'm not too proud of today. I surely don't want Jada knowing all that about her daddy. When people see me today, they may remember me as the worst of sinners back then. But, if I happen to represent Christ in some little way, then they will see as an example, what His unlimited patience has done for me.
