Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

The Greatest Hall of Fame


I recently came across the below video link and thought it was fitting for all athletes, but especially for the 32 basketball teams participating in the Lutheran Grade School State Basketball Championship.  I encourage you to take a few minutes to embrace God's mercy and love, knowing He has included you in The Greatest Hall of Fame!
