What does it take to become an elite international competitor? Ask one of these athletes that question and you'll hear words such as "determination," "endurance," "focus," "passion," "patience" and "self-discipline."
But in the race we call life, there is a greater purpose than winning medals, breaking records and obtaining wealth and fame. The athletes featured in Glory of the Games have come to realize that they have been blessed with athleticism and drive in order to bring Glory to God and share with others the hope that accompanies a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The same is true for all of us. Successfully living out that purpose requires biblically sound characteristics.
