Last year we saw a Crossfit Games without Rich Froning competing in the individual division. I was personally bummed when he announced he would be participating in the team events. But his move opened up the opportunity for a new champ to be crowned. How fitting it would be that the new champ would be as passionate for Christ as Rich.
Ben Smith is the 2015 Crossfit Games champ and he has used his platform to make God known. His Instagram profile features a scripture reference. It’s one thing to acknowledge he has a verse in his bio; it’s another thing to look it up. Let’s see what verse Ben Smith has chosen as one he wants the world to know is dear to his heart.
“See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” first thessalonians five:fifteen-eighteen
That, my friends, is a great verse for the world to read. You and I should probably commit that verse to memory and live it out.
