Hello my name is Americo and I want to tell you how the most powerful society and team in the world bought me great cost. I assure you that being part of this team it’s the best thing in the world, because we always win. We are unbeatable. I am proud to be one of its players. Let’s have a look at how this career began. I was born in Rome, raised in Karlsruhe (Germany) in a family of believers, which had faith in Jesus Christ, Son of God, come in this world to sacrifice His own life for the humanity, as it’s written in the Bible:
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
I followed this path my own way too, I felt alright before God, so the years passed. Since I was a child, I was passionate about football; it had become the meaning of my life. I lived for the game. As a kid I began to play in a team, I was such a promising player that I got to play in the most prestigious youth league. Football gained always more worth in my life, as time went by. God and church meetings gradually lost their merit. In my youth, I decided to be a professional player, I wanted to be rich and enjoy my life.At the age of 16, I went to a Christian camp. The main theme was Moses’ life. This character fascinated me, but the moment I heard he had refused to be the most powerful and rich man of his times, only to be a son and servant of God, this fact hit me, like a stab straight in my heart. I went back home confused, with a fight inside of me. I remembered some Bible verses.
Mark 10:23 “ Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
Luke 12:20 But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’
This made me think and I realized that my life was very worthy in God’s eyes. I could have been rich and famous but what would have happened to me after death? I tried to ignore this inner fight, I kept playing, but it wasn’t the same thing; on the same field I once used to feel so comfortable, I didn’t feel good anymore. I was confused, I played bad. I heard a voice inside of me, saying: “Americo, what are you doing with your life? Come to me, I’ll give your soul rest and peace. Join me and my life, and you’ll be rich and famous in Heaven!” It was Jesus speaking. This invitation echoed in my mind all the time. Jesus was knocking on my heart’s door; so one day, during a match, I entered the locker room and I prayed, accepting Jesus’ great invitation. Jesus became my Savior and my Coach. Since that day I have the feeling to be an eternal winner. This is the apex of my player’s carrier. I have come a player in the most powerful team in the world and Jesus is my coach, who died for me, buying me at a great cost. Jesus did it for you too and He wants you in His team! Accept his call, you’ll be a son of God and your life will be full with satisfaction. It’s a winning team, it gives you an open-ended contract, a first-string place, richness in heaven, blessings, peace, joy and love…
