When I was 12 years old, my first childhood hero was baseball great Roberto Clemente of the Pittsburg Pirates. We all need heroes, and in the 1971 World Series, #21 became mine. I was so excited to tell everyone about my new hero, Roberto Clemente. I still talk about him whenever baseball comes up.
Over the past few years, there has been constant talk using the term ‘the GOAT’ meaning the ‘Greatest of All Time.’ In today’s talk, Roberto Clemente would be my baseball GOAT! Comparing great athletes has been going on for quite some time … like Jordan vs James, Brady vs Manning, Gretzky vs Orr, Morgan vs Hamm … this list could go on forever.
So, who is the GOAT of History? Muslims say Mohamed is the GOAT, Buddhists say Buddha is the GOAT, and so on. Over 2 billion people worldwide believe Jesus Christ is the GOAT. Jesus is, by far, the most famous person in history, or as I like to say HIS-Story!
Why did I start this T-shirt Ministry? After having talked to thousands of lost Souls in over 30 years of sharing Jesus on college campuses and prisons, I found that Witnessing or Sharing the Truth of Jesus seems to be the hardest and most intimidating thing for a Christian to do, including Pastors and Christian Leaders. As Christians, we are to promote Him as the Son of God or, in our modern society words, the GOAT!
People promote what they Believe all the time about politics, sports, and the like with things like T-shirts, caps, mugs, and bumper stickers. I started this T-shirt Ministry to promote the Ultimate Truth about Jesus Christ. I am convinced that proclaiming Jesus as the Son of God is the most important thing a Christian can do. My GOAT T-shirts promoting Jesus are not confrontational and cause people to take a second look. This gives them the opportunity to approach me and gives me the opportunity to talk with them about Jesus.
For decades, I thought about how I could reach more people for Jesus. I feel God gave me the idea of this T-shirt Ministry ‘WhoseYourGoat.com’ to help Christians Share their Faith in Him. When you wear one of my walking billboards promoting Jesus as the GOAT, you are promoting the Kingdom of Christ.
Stand up, show your Faith, and promote Jesus … you could bring someone to the Lord just by wearing one of my T-shirts promoting Jesus as the GOAT!
God Bless you on your Journey with Jesus the Christ!
