The few games of the NBA Finals that I had gotten to watch—I was amazed at one thing (and this I noticed in the Miami games): when Miami played, it was to a backdrop of white shirts (white being Miami’s home game colors). Everyone was in white! Now, that’s intimidating to an opponent who goes into the arena looking for some measure of comfort or appreciation. And, that’s comforting to a home team that goes into the campaign looking for support.
It’s a good analogy for Christian commitment.
Are we ready to wear our colors proudly? Are we ready to be one with other Christians in being identified as a Christian? Its similar to wearing white in the Miami Heat basketball arena—you identify yourself with the home team to the extent that you would proudly display your colors.
God doesn’t ask much from us—just that we make a choice, we stand by it and we be proud of it.
For all those who have made that choice, let us stand by it and be proud of it. Wear your colors proudly, God’s child!
