The Thrill of Victory or the Agony of Defeat, “The Teacher Part 1” #3

The Thrill of Victory or the Agony of Defeat #3 


The Head Coach had a unique way he taught his players so they could compete at their highest level in the game. The first thing he taught them was that if you are going to be successful it’s a team sport and you play the game as one. His training techniques were quite unique and training was 365 days a year


For us today as believers we need to compete at our highest level in the game of life. To compete against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11) takes training 365 days a year. We are one body in Christ, and all of us are members of this one body (Romans 12:5). We study to show ourselves approved unto God, not man to rightly divide his word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). We do this by knowing all scripture is given by God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, and correction, which is instruction in righteousness. Why the answer is so we can be perfect and thoroughly furnished unto all good works (2 Timothy 3:16-19). That is how we compete in the game of life


How Jesus taught his coaches and players


1 – They didn’t have time off in the summer, but were sent out as a group to recruit other teammates; the head coach thought this was a good way to build future players. So, he sent his twelve hot shots to hot spots to recruit and they had some amazing results, including raising dead recruits from the dead. The best recruits aren’t weak, sick, injured, or dead!


  • The Head Coach gave his recruiting coaches power to cast out unclean spirits, heal all manner of sickness, all manner of disease, and raise the dead, especially if they are a 5-star recruit – Matthew 10:1,8


  • When the recruiting coaches had their in-house recruiting visits, they did what Jesus told them to do – Matthew 10:1-16, Mark 3:14, 15, 6:7-13, Luke 9:1-10, 22:35)


2 – Every opportunity that the head coach had when he was with his coaching staff and players, he taught by example. He never took time off, but always was ready to heal people that had a need to be healed and raised the dead, not faking or dialing for dollars (Matthew 8:14,15, 9:18,19,23-26, Mark 1:29-31, 5:22-24,35-43, Luke 4:38,39, 6:13-19,8:41,42,49-56)


3 – The Head Coach even taught them to deal with “devilish” fanatical fans (Luke 8:1, 2)


4 – Lots of times the head coach taught by using props, today, as sick as it is, the cancer hospitals use kids to sell their products of healing! (Matthew 18:1-10, Mark 9:35-50, Luke 9:46-50)


5 – The Head Coach taught his players how to be successful in life, when you do something, you act upon truth and follow through with those right actions until it becomes successful, it’s the Sower thing! (Matthew 13:1-23, Mark 4:1-20, Luke 8:5-15)


6 – The Head Coach would teach them about future events, but they just didn’t get it (Matthew 20:17-28, Mark 10:32-45, Luke 18:31-34, John 12:17-37)


7 – The Head Coach altered the physical realm to get his point across, like moving mountains and killing trees without herbicides (Matthew 21:18-22, Mark 11:11-24, John 20:19-29)


There is a second part to how Jesus taught his coaches and players. Discussing negotiating contracts, with Judas, and even doubting Thomas, stay tuned!
