Bible Reading:  Mat. 6:25-34, John 12:32

Memory Verse : For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16

When Brazil won the Gold medal defeating Germany in a penalty shootout at the Olympics Games, Rio 2016, Neymar scored the decisive goal busting into tears and falling on his knees as he celebrated the victory that won the Gold.

As he celebrated, noticeable was his head band that read “100% Jesus”. This was not the first time the footballer will be seen wearing the headband, as a matter of fact; it goes way back to his childhood. As a child, Neymar wore a head band that read “100% Jesus” and went to church in Sao Vincent. A report has it that the story of the head band is associated with his football club while he was still playing at home. Then, Neymar wore the head band as an appreciation to God for miraculously providing a football pitch for his home base club at the time.

Also, in 2012, Neymar sported the head band and raced around the field after his former team Santos secured the 2012 Sao Paulo State Championship. He also celebrated the 2015 Champions League with a white head band on his head with the message “100% Jesus”. Neymar made a clear statement of intent not only the thousands of spectators in the stadium but also to the millions watching on T.V. that Jesus is at the center of his life and so must  take part in his celebrations. Friends, is Jesus at the centre of your life? Do you know him? Have you accepted him as your personal Lord and saviour turning your back to your old ways? Borrow a lead from Neymar today! Today he is the highest-paid footballer in Europe (£515,000 a week), but only second to Shanghai Shenhua’s Carlos Tevez in the world. Not even money and fame could separate Neymar from the love of the Lord. What about you?
