Scripture Lesson: 1 Peter 1:3-9
On this date in 1911, an early version of the Most Valuable Player
Award was introduced by automaker Hugh Chalmers. The first winners of the MVP
Award, chosen by a committee of sportswriters, were Ty Cobb of the Tigers in
the American League and Frank Schulte of the Cubs in the National League. The
Chalmers Award was discontinued after 1911, and the current Most Valuable
Player Award was instituted in 1938.
In today’s text, Peter suggests how we might become MVPs of faith.
When we are filled with love, unwavering belief, and an inexpressible joy, we
will be MVPs of faith. That kind of faith in our lives will enable us to reach
the goal of our faith, our heavenly home. Because of what Jesus did for us, we
can receive salvation and grow a faith that makes us an MVP of faith in His
the results of our faith?
our faith refined?
Sometimes there is debate on who should be the MVPs in each league.
We have before us the blueprint for being a MVP in God’s league!
