18 Inches to Be a Great Christian

Tom Landry is one of the greatest NFL coaches of all-time. On more than one occasion, Coach Landry stated that he has met many good athletes over his career, but very few great ones. He defined the difference between good and great as 18 inches—the distance from the head to the heart.

Something similar could be said about Christians. There are many good Christians with knowledge of the Bible and many of the right behaviors, but there seems to be fewer great Christians who are truly in love with Jesus. The difference between good and great is the same 18 inches.

Our prayer for you is that you would connect those 18 inches between your head and your heart and fall in love with Jesus all over again (or even for the first time). God bless you all.
