Here's what the teams who competed yesterday and Dr King have in common. They illustrate the cultural leverage of excellence. The chiefs are led by CEO. Clark Hunt I was privileged to be his pastor for many years in Dallas and Kinda tasked personally to his family's strong commitment to Jesus when his team won the AFC championship yesterday. Clark told the World World I want to thank the Lord for blessing us with this opportunity. The glory belongs to him and this trophy belongs to the best fans in the National Football League Tennessee. Hennessy quarterback Ryan Tannehill made clear his faith in Jesus over the years as well recently telling reporters I pray before every game. I spend time with God before I get to the stadium and then when I lace up my cleats I thank God for the opportunity to go out there and attempt to glorify him. By contrast packers quarterback. Aaron Rodgers has made news in recent years for the fact that he no longer identifies as Christian after meeting and being influenced by Rob Rob Bell Rogers told. ESPN I think. Organized religion can have a mind debilitating effect because there's an exclusivity that can shut you out from being open to the world to people and Energy and love and acceptance. Rogers is one of the most talented athletes of his generation like car. CONT and Ryan Tannehill. His commitment to professional excellence provides enormous leverage for cultural influence whether the person uses that influence. For Jesus Jesus or not it may surprise you to learn the Dr Martin Luther King Junior never completed high school. That's because he was such an advanced student that he skipped his first and last years of high school and went directly into college at the age of fifteen he entered seminary at the age of nineteen and graduated three years later as Valedictorian and student body. President he completed a PhD at Boston. University at the age of twenty twenty five. Dr King was brilliant in his diagnosis of the problem. Facing our nation he said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice is everywhere. We are caught an inescapable network of mutuality tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects? It's all indirectly. He was brilliant and declaring the ultimate answer to our melody as well while accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen Sixty four Dr King stated. I believe that unarmed truth. And unconditional love will have the final word in reality that is by right. Temporarily defeated needed is stronger than evil triumphant. He was brilliant and inspiring others. Dr King told a group of students in October nineteen sixty seven. Be Nia Bush if you can't be a tree if you can't be a highway just be a trail if you can't be a son be a star for it isn't by size. Is that you win or fail. Be The best of whatever you are today. We remember with gratitude not just his legacy but the commitment to excellence. What's that made it possible? Daniel achieved in exalted place in Babylon because an excellent spirit was in him in proverbs. Twenty two twenty nine Solomon noted. Do you see a man skillful in his work he will stand before kings. Paul was known for his is great. Learning the person who lived with excellence more than any other was of course the Lord Jesus. He's the only person in history who was tempted in every way just as we are yet he did not sin the crowds said of his ministry. He has done all things well. Now our Lord's Passion Passion for excellence must be hours. We are to seek excellence in our thoughts as Philippians. Four eight says if there is any excellence if there is anything worthy of praise think about these things and in our actions as well as Colossians. Three twenty three says whatever you do work work heartily as for the Lord and not for men we most express such excellence through service. I Peter for ten says as each has received a gift use it to serve one another and in mark nine thirty five. Jesus was adamant if anyone would be I. He must be last of all and servant of all exactly two months before he was assassinated. Dr King delivered a sermon German at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta titled The Drum Major Instinct. He described this instinct as a desire to be out front a a desire to lead the parade a desire to be I. By contrast he proclaimed Jesus define greatness as service Dr King noted by giving that definition of greatness. It means that everybody can be great because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You've you don't have to make your subject and verb agreed to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and heiress title to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second law of thermodynamics to serve.
