“Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” II Peter 3:17-18
Tony Romo has undergone a spiritual transformation the last few years (which we talk about on pages 40-43 of our most recent print issue). During that time, he has been mentored by godly men, gotten married, become a father and has seen what’s most important in life.
“One thing as I grow into a husband is being a spiritual leader of my family, my wife and the people I surround myself with,” Romo told Sports Spectrum. “I heard John Wooden, the UCLA basketball coach for all those years, once said success is peace of mind. For me, my greatest peace of mind, my greatest success, you might say, is when I walk the spiritual journey, when I’m a spiritual leader to my family and the people I’m around. That’s what I’m striving for, and that’s where I hope to continue to go and grow.”
Romo gets it. His lofty ambitions aren’t success in the world’s eyes, but success in God’s eyes. Having experienced success, he realizes that all the things the world chases after are empty, unless your focus is on your relationship with Christ.
Grow in your walk with God and sense the reality, peace, and fulfillment of a God-focused life.
