  1. At this point ... here's what needs to happen ... there is a chance!
  2. What does it mean to live under God's grace? - Zach Maldonado - Under grace, we discover our motivation to obey God is because of His love for us. - Under grace, we recognize that we are in Christ forever. Under grace, we find freedom from sin. - Under grace, we discover God is good to us all the time, even when we don’t deserve it. - Under grace, we awaken to the reality that we are new creations who are accepted and delighted in by our Heavenly Father. - Under grace, we fall deeper in love with Jesus and find lasting rest, purpose, and meaning for our souls. - Under grace, Jesus wants us to trust Him, not strive for Him. - Under grace, it is up to Jesus to grow us, sustain us, and keep us. - Under grace, the pressure to perform is off. - Under grace, God want us to enjoy His love and presence, not seek to earn it.
  3. Where is the thread that lists who are targets are at in each position?  Wanted to see who our other CB targets are and where they rank verse Webb.

  4. Here is a possible solution one might want to check out if you catch Covid. He claims no death with his Covid patients since using it in March. I did not use anything in my recovery but it also took me 25 days of staying clear of folks. https://invidio.us/watch?v=eDSDdwN2Xcg&fbclid=IwAR1ll3Fj4Z6sUzpGO_o0adEtNhOfNBHJ_fW_ETOWdUEYSA6pIKG7LcScTqQ All the best fellow human!
  5. God Is Not Keeping A Record Of Wrongs - Brad Robertson Really good teaching on forgiveness under Jesus' New Covenant.
  6. Sure, I get your thought ... I don't know if I've ever read anything from Frost or staff that suggests that ... if so, that would be a good link and read I'm sure. Some humor for a second ... the folks in High School that took this route to "build the brand" became known as "sluts". :-) I genuinely hope that it isn't a "PR strategy". I think the history of our program shows it wasn't built in this way. I'm more of a "meat and potatoes" type of guy and certainly hope we don't have to resort to pinning our program on this type of PR strategy. It would be far better to put "meat and potatoes" on the table and truly feed the program with real character
  7. We offer 400 kids each year ... so I don't know how much "evaluation" goes into all of those 400 offers. It's kinda crazy to me and dilutes the value of the offer. Still, within all those offers it seems to come down to "connection" and "relationship" [which is another reason why I don't get the 400 offers]. So, I'm with the view that our recruiters work hard to connect with who they like and believe [in the end] they can get [worth the effort]. To me, it's the recruit that can get "messed up" by how Covid is changing their evaluation. The school has to commit to four years to the prospect in the offer ... the recruit has all sorts of "outs" [and that will probably increase under Covid]. One thing that could "mess us up" that I haven't seen discussed is if the season gets delayed. What I'd we only play the last 8 games? What if we go 2-6 or 3-5 with a losing season? What perception is created and is the "Frost effect" totally gone and how does that effect recruiting going forward?
  8. I missed that he had committed to Kentucky. This prospect intrigued me. Good luck to him.
  9. Seated With Christ or Just Following Christ? - Jeff Fields I see myself more as a "Seated With Christ"-er than a "Christ follower." From God's perspective, after what Christ did for us at the cross and in the resurrection, the "following" part is already done. "And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus" Eph. 2:6. "If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are ablove, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God" (Col. 3:1-3). We have it so much better than what the disciples had before Jesus died on the cross. There is a new covenant in town. We are now "in Christ." Jesus is not out ahead of us while we do our best to tag along. We are in him and he is in us. You cannot get any closer than that. If you have received Christ by faith, you are eternally joined with him (see I Cor. 6:17). That means you have already followed him to the cross, into the tomb, out of the tomb, and to the Father. Because of his love for you and by his grace, Christ is your life. Since we are seated with him, we are free to walk here and now according to who we already are. You and I are "Seated With Christ"-ers! That is infinitely better than striving in the flesh to be Christ followers. The good news is "...Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Col. 1:27). As we rest in him by faith, Christ lives his life through us.
  10. 247 seems to say he is a Penn St lean. Wonder if this "humor" has any truth to us for next year.
  11. Set Yourself Free ... Forgive Yourself One of the four provisions of Jesus' New Covenant is found in Hebrews 8:12. It reads, "He remembers our sins and lawless deeds no more." And yet, truly, genuinely and forgiving yourself "once and for all" is perhaps one of the most difficult things to do and experience. Setting yourself free by forgiving yourself may be your greatest battle. You live in bondage to something or many things you did in your past. You know God has forgiven you. You know others have forgiven you. But you just can't forgive yourself. You live in regret for things you have done. You live in shame for things you have done. You live in guilt for things you have done. You are mad at yourself. You wish you could go back and do things differently. But you can't. So you relive these regretful decisions everyday. Consequently, the shame, guilt, and anger resurfaces. They produce sadness and depression in you. You feel you must punish yourself for what you did. You tell yourself you do not deserve to forgive yourself. You tell yourself you do not deserve to be happy. I want you to know you are not alone. All of us wish we could go back and make different decisions. But we can't. You may say, "But you don't know what I did. My sins, failures, and choices are so much worse than others. If you only knew." You would be surprised to know that you are just like the rest of us ... flawed people who have failed greatly. And yes...I don't know what you have done. What I do know, is there is nothing you have done that is greater than God's love for you...nothing. His love is greater than your worse sin. He knows everything, and he loves you. He is not ashamed of you or angry with you. So what do we do? What we can do is forgive ourselves for the past and move forward into the future, making better decisions from this day forward. Forgiveness is not a feeling. Forgiveness is not something that is deserved or earned. Forgiveness is free, purchased for us by Jesus at the cross. Jesus took our regrets ... our sins ... upon himself at the cross. By faith, we extend forgiveness to ourselves. We chose to forgive ourselves. But someone may say, "I don't deserve to forgive myself." But remember, forgiveness is not something we deserve but something we freely give ourselves because of what Jesus did on the cross. When you forgive yourself, you are valuing the blood of Jesus. When you forgive yourself, you are saying "Thank you" to Jesus. When you forgive yourself, you are taking what Jesus purchased for you ... forgiveness ... and giving it to yourself. So by faith, forgive yourself ... and when the regret comes into your mind, demanding you dwell on what you did, choose to dwell upon what Jesus did for you on the cross. Choose to dwell on God's love for you. Tell yourself, "God loves me and has forgiven me, and I have forgiven myself." Then move forward in your day, focusing on your new life in Christ and making decisions that you will proud of from this point forward. Set yourself free today by forgiving yourself. Mark
