* Ill.: Growing up in Illinois, we didn’t have $500 XBox’s or PlayStations. We had to come up with our own games, using the stuff around us. A Lot of times we used to play kickball or basketball or the like, to pass time

Of course, ’Someone. usually the best athletic among us, would come up with a play...a Plan...to help us score the next point or stop the other team from doing so. And, usually this Plan had them in the center of the action, being the ’All-Star’ or Hero of the game...leading the rest of us on to victory.

The problem is that today, many Christians are coming up with their own Playbook or Plan on how to defeat the devil...how to have a victorious Christian life...how to be an Overcomer. And when they do this they have to ignore the Word of God, which seeks to make Jesus the ’All-Star of God’s team.
