There is something about sport that enlivens us (both in the doing and in the watching). Whether it's the playoffs, the Olympics, watching an extreme skier, or working out, we feel more human when we engage in sport. The joy of play seems just right. Competing in a healthy way brings out the best in us. Using our bodies more fully is life giving. The glory of winning feels like something we're made for. Of course we are made for all of this. And all of this, when you unpack it a bit, points to the one who made us this way. Following are a smattering of sports sermons I've preached over the years.
