Roger Staubach, who led the Dallas Cowboys to the Super Bowl victory in 1971, admitted that his position as a quarterback who didn’t call his own signals was a source of trial for him.
Coach Landry sent in every play. He told Roger when to pass, when to run & only in emergency situations could he change the play. Even though Roger considered Coach Landry to have a “genius mind” when it came to football strategy, pride said that he should be able to run his own team.
Roger had a decision to make. Would he allow pride to rule his life & ignore his coach, making himself the star? Or would he listen to the coach & do what he wanted?
Roger later said, “I faced up to the issue of obedience. Once I learned to obey there was harmony, fulfillment & victory.”
Lord Jesus Christ said: “If you love me, you will obey my commandments.” (John 14:15 GW)
“Our Lord told His disciples that love and obedience were organically united. The final test of love is obedience.” - A.W. Tozer.
“Obedience to God must never be delayed.” - Zac Poonen.
