On The Cusp
Everyone in the game of football has likely been on the cusp at some point — whether as a substitute or a trialist, whether as an assistant coach or staffer or working somewhere within in the the football industry, it’s likely that you have been in that position where greatness, achievement or success was just within reach and, yet, you get passed over for someone else or because of circumstances that are out of your control or no fault of your own.
Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, we look at the story of Joe (really Joseph) and Matthias from Acts, chapter 1, and how Joe got passed over when it came to first team selection to join the original 11 apostles — the close followers of Jesus. From what little more we know about Joe’s life, I think we can take encouragement for those on the cusp, on the bubble moments of life.
Scripture reference from today’s episode:
- Acts 1:12-26 (link to chapter 1:12-26)
From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 10-15 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney, Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. Rev Brad and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).
