Like OU & Texas, We All Need a Realignment

If you’ve been keeping up with college athletics or any local news for that matter, you’ll notice that conference realignment is back and college football is certainly changing. Within the last week, we’ve seen evolving news that the Big 12 Conference is experiencing a major shift, with the exit of the Oklahoma Sooners & the Texas Longhorns to the SEC Conference. Lots of money and lots of fans are moving to the SEC along with those teams. As an OSU Cowboy, I wonder what will happened to my team, although I’m pretty excited about the future, albeit uncertain.
Amongst the drama of OU & Texas, everyone has an opinion on the issue, and here’s mine:


If you look up the definition of a conference realignment, you’ll find phrase which says, “extensive changes made to best fit a school in that particular athletic season.”

So I’ll say again: “WE ALL NEED A REALIGNMENT.”
No, I’m talking about college football. I’m talking about our life with the Lord!

Every person on this planet was born into the S.I.N. Conference. A popular conference attractive to the world, but deadly to the soul.

Only through this realignment that Jesus can give us, can we align ourselves out of SIN and into the Victory He has for us.

Spiritual Realignment is an extensive change of the heart, a transfer of my heart to the King of Kings. Through this transfer, I choose to realign to His will, His leading, and His ways.

But here’s the thing: our flesh doesn’t want to leave the S.I.N. Conference. We are often comfortable in the cesspool of sin, when our souls are crying out to be near the Lord.

We must choose to realign in this life. We must exit the conference of SIN and choose to be where Jesus is.

Additionally, Many Christians today need a realignment of their spiritual walk. We need Christ Followers who will Walk with a Mission, rather than folks who simply sit on their salvation status. Perhaps you have felt God leading you to volunteer in your church ministry. Perhaps you feel a call to ministry. Maybe you feel the tug of God to make a move for Him, or maybe you’ve realized you need a rekindled burden to reach lost souls for the Kingdom.

Pray tonight, that God would give you a REALIGNMENT. Not like OU or Texas. Not to play college football. No, ask God to give you a REALIGNMENT to the ETERNAL ASSIGNMENT He has for YOU! Because no matter which team is in which conference, and no matter who wins on the scoreboard, at the end of the day, Jesus has already Won it All, question is, “which side will we be on?” Choose Jesus. Choose Realignment. Choose His Assignment. And then, watch the extensive change of your heart, your world, and your eternity take place! #ConferenceRealignment #OSU #OU #Big12 #currentevents #NCAA #JesusAlwaysWins #YesToHisWill #GoPokes #texaslonghorns #SEC #collegefootball
