Football and Church

What do football and the church have in common?  Teamwork.  Leadership.  Planning.  Endurance. Discipline. Excitement. And much more.

The theologian A.W. Tozer pointed out another interesting similarity to make a keen point about the need for salvation, the receiving of the eternal life offered through belief in Jesus Christ as Savior:

One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
