    Day 1 - June 15, 2018, Devotion:
    With his first touch of the ball, within seconds of coming into the playing field as a Substitute, Artem Dzyuba, scored a goal. What a magic touch! #RussiaVsSaudiArabia. #Russia2018. Twelve times atleast, the Gospels record, people got healed in their bodies instantly when Jesus touched them! What a miracle touch! It was just one proof that Jesus was the only God-in-flesh who could do a healing miracle whenever he liked/touched (unlike any of us)!!!

    Day2 - June 16, 2018 Devo -
    Martin Rogers writes, "in his first game of the tournament, Christiano Ronaldo, scored one goal with his left foot, another with his right and a third with a magnificent free kick to tie the match at 3-3 in Sochi." Spain Vs Portugal. Russia 2018. That's what I call as balanced brilliance! Jesus advocated balance. "You should done this without leaving out that..." he preached (Matt. 23:23). We need to balance Bible Reading with prayer, intercession for the lost with evangelism among them, Spirit of God with the Word of God, Fruit of the Spirit with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, Human Responsibility with God's Sovereignty, the Love of God with the Wrath of God, local evangelism and frontier missions, etc.

    Day 3, June 17, 2018 Devo: Writing about Lionel Messi, the BBC notes, "He continued to try for a way through against Iceland with 11 attempted shots, the most he's ever tried in a World Cup game, but was left frustrated." Argentina Vs Iceland. Russia World Cup 2018. Messi was not a sluggard, someone who did not try. The Bible says, "The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied" (Prov. 13:4). We must try. We must give up without trying. We may not win everyone for Christ, but we must honestly try to share the Gospel and leave the results with God. We are not called to "Christianize", but to "evangelize".

    Day 4, June 18, 2018
    Cody Benjamin wrote, "Neymar, the 26-year-old superstar, was fouled a whopping 10 times in the Brazil v Switzerland match. Brazil Vs Switzerland. Russia 2018. The double-digit total, according to ESPN, marked the most fouls on one player in the World Cup since 1998, when Tunisia fouled Alan Shearer 11 times.When we get into the field for the Lord, we will face concentrated opposition. From the World, from the Devil, from the Flesh, from the Wolves in Sheep clothing (false teachers). We will be "fouled" against. Those who foul us will not play fair. But we need to keep moving on ahead. Live holy. Witness to the lost. Make it to the end. By God's grace.

    Day 5, June 19, 2018
    "Fans in Mexico City were so excited on Sunday after their national team beat defending champions Germany that seismic sensors detected a small earthquake (caused by delirious spectators jumping for joy?) after Hirving Lozano scored the winning goal." - New Indian Express, June 19, 2018. Reminded me of the joy-causing jump that God-in-flesh Jesus (while still inside Mary's womb) caused in John the Baptist (also inside his mother's womb) when both the pregnant moms came close to each other (Read Luke 1:44)! You do not know what joy is, unless you have a living daily relationship with Jesus, who died for you on the Cross!
