“God has preordained all of us to achieve greatness in our life, but until we get ourselves cleaned up and hooked to the right power source, we’ll never be what he wants us to be.” 

We live in a time when people are hooked up to the wrong power source, anything other than God. 

“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18 

From our Charlottesville Tailgate this past Spring, our friend Gordon Fields tells us how to maintain a strong connection to our power source. Gordon, a pastor for 30 years who now works with UVA Athletics graduate assistance through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, is dedicated to investing in young athletes, leaders, and coaches. He’s lived firsthand what it’s like to have “a good battery, but a weak connection.” 

“We have to have a good connection with God to benefit from the power that is available to us.” 

What do you do when the corrosion of sin causes a clicking sound and a bad connection that keeps us from having a good connection with God? 

Hear one of the coolest ideas he walks through: the “my, I, and me hookup” in Psalm 23, and find out how to get power back under the hood through the cross.  

Join our next Tailgate in Suffolk on September 25, or find out when we are coming to a city near you. Help us Connect the Dots on the map and connect other men by donating to offset Tailgate expenses.
