I Am Second

I've recently started watching UFC/MMA fights and found myself drawn in even further after noticing the sheer number of overt Christians in the sport. One shirt a fighter wore after a match that jumped out at me said "I AM SECOND" in giant letters and underneath in a much smaller font "Jesus is First."

I really dug that, and since seeing it there, have begun noticing it in more and more places. Last weekend, Eagle Brook Church ran a video from I Am Second about a deaf pastor who breathes the Word into the lives of 3000+ people every weekend. Today, I saw a link for a video from Brian "Head" Welch from Korn talking about how God helped him kick his addictions.

While I'm still not 100% certain what the movement is, I do see it working exceptionally well as a viral marketing conduit for God's Power. That's awesome. The Bible, banned by Kings, pronounced dead hundreds of times by human authorities, written over the course of thousands of years by many men who had no connection to one another, now has sunk it's roots into the internet age and is growing deeper and faster every day.

Praise God.

Let's all strive to come in second place.

I Am Second.
