“Profile of a Champion”, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

I’ve always heard that a man must first conquer his own soul before he can conquer the world. When you look in the mirror do you see a hero or a zero, a winner or a whiner? We all would like to be better people. Today let’s look at the mirror of God’s Word in a sermon called the profile of a champion.  

1.      A Champion is under Authority

Philip. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Matthew 28:18-20   And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 2.      A Champion knows his Competition

1Samuel 17:4-7  A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. He was over nine feet tall. [5] He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels; [6] on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. [7] His spear shaft was like a weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him.

3.      A Champion has Heart

1Samuel 17:32 David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.”

1Samuel 17:50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

4.      A Champion enters the “No Whining Zone”.

James 1:8  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

1 Cor. 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

 5.  A Champion is  selfless.
Philip. 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

6.  A Champion Leads by Example  .

1 Tim. 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

7. A Champion sees the Future .
Philip. 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

8. A Champion Values Team .

1 Cor. 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

9. Champions See the Reward of the Battle
2 Tim. 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
