FriThought: No Wusses!

7 08 2009

I love this verse…

When the going gets rough, take it on the chin with the rest of us, the way Jesus did. 2 Timothy 2:3

No Wusses! Be a Man! I am not a big UFC fan, but a good friend Scott shared this on Facebook. “This verse reminds me of a great T-shirt, you will see it during UFC events. Its says: ‘Jesus didn’t tap’” I LOVE THAT!

For those of you who don’t watch combat sports, “tap out” is a term for yielding to the opponent, and hence resulting in an immediate defeat. The submission is commonly performed by clearly tapping the floor or the opponent with the hand or sometimes with the foot, to signal the opponent and possibly the referee of the submission. The submission can also be verbal, during which the fighter verbally informs that he is giving up.

Jesus stayed in the ring to fight for you and me. When the going got tough, Jesus didn’t tap out.  When he was arrested, beaten and bruised,When He was nailed to the cross for our sins, He sacrificed himself for you and me. He died so we could live. He is the ultimate fighter!
