A true playmaker makes an ordinary player feel he is a winner.
READ: 1 Corinthians 2:6-10
As a creative player, the playmaker’s role is to influence the attacking aspect of his team’s game. Spraying killer passes to the wingers or the strikers upfront, he initiates his team’s attacks and tries to unlock the opponents’ defense. His intuition and ability to read the game enable him to put perfectly placed balls through to his teammates. Possessing amazing dribbling and passing skills, the playmaker can quickly turn defense into offence for his side.
Sometimes we wish the same thing would work in real life, thinking if only there were a “playmaker,” things would be different. Unfortunately, even those who specialize in solving problems for others are not without problems themselves, being hemmed in by sin and limited by their own finiteness.
But there is One who is the original Creator. He did marvelous things for us that “no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind has imagined” (1 Corinthians 2:9). In one fell swoop God turned things around, dealing conclusively with the problem of sin and death for us. To those who believe in His Son, Jesus, He gave them His Spirit who guides them daily in their journey with Him and ultimately towards the glorious life of living with the Creator forever.
