Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Leap for joy and slam dunk your worries away! Gabe McGlothan, the high-flying forward for Grand Canyon University, is scoring big for the Kingdom! Before each game, Gabe fortifies his spirit by reading the Bible right on the bench. His reason? “Gotta bring your sword to battle,” he says with a grin.

Picture that: a basketball court, fans cheering, and Gabe, with his Bible open, soaking in God’s Word. It’s no surprise his pregame routine is turning heads and lifting spirits!

This faith-filled athlete isn’t solo in his devotion; he started this pregame Bible reading with former teammate Jayden Stone. Together, they’d dive into Scripture, then carry those truths onto the court. Imagine that strength in the face of adversity! Coach Bryce Drew praises Gabe for his NBA-level talent and his ever-growing faith at GCU.

Off the court, Gabe’s Instagram reflects his walk with Christ, calling his baptism his “best accomplishment.”

Let’s all take a page from Gabe’s playbook.

Our actions should echo our belief, as if saying, “This is what a believer in Christ does.” We’re reminded in 2 Corinthians 5:20, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.

So, whether you’re on the court, at work, or in your neighborhood, let’s be those ambassadors, living out loud for Jesus!

To wrap it up with a slam dunk, here’s a Bible verse that aligns perfectly with Gabe’s story: Matthew 5:16 tells us, “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Dear Lord,

We lift up Gabe McGlothan and all those who shine Your light in the world of sports. May his faithful pregame ritual of reading Scripture inspire both his teammates and fans to seek Your wisdom and strength in their own lives.

Grant him and his fellow athletes protection and perseverance as they use their platform to glorify You. May we all remember to bring our “sword” into our daily battles, holding fast to Your Word as our guide and shield.
