Sept 1 – Paul Henderson’s Unsatisfying Goal

It has been called “the goal of the century” and” the most famous emotional goal of the century.” It happened 42 years ago on September 28th 1972 when Paul Henderson scored for Team Canada against the powerhouse Team Russia. One would think this kind of achievement would bring real fulfillment and happiness to Henderson, but it did not. He said, “It was only after I gave my life to the Lord Jesus Christ and started living for Him that I found inner peace and tranquility.” He added, “Being a Christian is vibrant, exciting and gives purpose and meaning to life.” That is exactly what the Bible promises to all who sincerely acknowledge their spiritual bankruptcy, sine we are all sinners by nature and by choice, and invite Christ into their lives. Paul the Apostle was inspired to put it this way: ”Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
