God is alive in South African sport

The past two weekends I’ve enjoyed Super Rugby the post match interviews have been the best! Don’t get me wrong the rugby was amazing but my my the post match interviews had heaven singing!

On the 15th July the Emirates Lions played the Cell C Sharks in Durban, the visitors the Lions won the match securing a home quarter final playing the same team on the 22 July in Johannesburg. During the post match interviews both the Man of the match Kwagga Smith and the Lions captain Jaco Kriel thank God for their ability to play, I was amazed.

A week later watching the DHL Stomers vs Chiefs play in their quarter final at Newlands in Cape Town the loosing captain Siyamthanda ‘Siya’ Kolisi too thanked God for a great day the opportunity to play, again I was amazed.

Heaven was rejoicing that I can guarantee! Millions of people watch rugby and its amazing to see the gospel being spread to the world! These moments reminded me of a song by Elvis Blue titled Die Hemel it’s an amazing, the lyrics translated from Afrikaans to English:
Lig jou hande op (lift your hands up high), Lig jou hande op (lift your hands up high), al die deure was toe maar die hemel was oop (all the doors were closed but heavens were open)
