INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | STEP UP WHEN YOU’RE CALLED

Often times we’re called up to lead in unexpected ways or in uncertain circumstances. But be encouraged! God is constantly working in our lives to prepare us for these moments. He’s constantly teaching us skills we need, surrounding us with people that can support us, and building up our character to lead well. We are here to expand His Kingdom here on Earth and it’s incredible that we get to be a part of that. The good news is, throughout the Bible, there are tons of heroes (Daniel, Mark, Moses, etc.) that God calls into a place of leadership, and some of them didn’t feel ready either. Step up in faith, and God will lead.

2 | RAISING THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHRIST FOLLOWERS

Colton is in a really fun position where, like many of our listeners (I’m sure), he’s an expecting father. Now, he and his wife are not going to learn the gender of the child beforehand, because they’re solely concerned about raising a Christ-follower. And that’s it! As an expecting parent their goals are to teach their child about The Gospel and who Jesus is. There is a myriad of other life skills that they will be teaching their child, but they realize that it’s not their child; it’s going to be a child of God. And their one goal is to raise another warrior for the Kingdom. 

Jesus is exactly who He says He is, and I want Him to rule my life. | Colton Duffy

SHOW NOTES

We’re glad to have you back for another episode of our Identity series here on Uncharted. Today we have an awesome friend of the show on to talk about stepping into fatherhood, leading in your community, and what it’s like to hang up your spikes.

Colton Duffy is a Colorado State University graduate down in the Denver area whom Colin played ball with for his last year in college. Colton has an amazing perspective on what it looks like to own your faith while leading by example. Tune in this week as we walk through what it looks like to be a strongly rooted man of faith.

You can also listen in on our Women’s Podcast Channel: Anchor + Waves, as we’re currently running a sister-program on that channel for female athletes also called Identity.
