Bible teacher David Bryant has a passion for helping people experience Christ in His fullness, what he calls having a "wide-angled vision" of Him.
On his Christ Today podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, Bryant shares a story to illustrate that concept. "Former Sen. John Ashcroft, who actually later became the attorney general, once [said] the definition of what our approach to life should be called [is] the 'basketball approach to life.'
"He noted the great NBA stars, such as Michael Jordan, develop what he called a 'wide-angled vision.' I guess Michael Jordan would be the supreme example of this. [Ashcroft] said real NBA stars are able to see the whole court at once, so that they can exploit at any moment's notice every option available to them at any moment, at any second," Bryant says. "... As soon as great players like a Michael Jordan spring into mid-air toward a basket, the success of making that basket no longer depends on the coach, on the shoes he's wearing and what his other teammates might be doing at the moment. The success of making that basket depends on the player's ability to see the larger picture and make instant moves that put the ball in the hoop.
"Similarly, for all of us, catching what I call this wider-angle vision of Christ's supremacy ... increases our options for achieving a victorious Christian life down here, day by day. It helps us to ... start playing the game in view of everything Christ brings to the court."
