Blog January 23rd Roberta Firmino

It’s From The Lord featuring Jassica Castillo – Burley and the Mustard Soul Band from the album ” Heart and Soul” recorded and produced by Ross Gill

As regular readers of this blog will probably know I am a Manchester United fan and have been ever since the Munich air disaster. Liverpool are traditionally Man U’s greatest rivals, however since Man City have come to the fore they, for me have now taken over that coveted position. Liverpool, in fact I quite admire – Jurgen Klopp is not only a great manager but he is also humorous and a practising Christian to boot (excuse the pun) I was therefore delighted to read the below which appeared on one of our webmaster’s Facebook posts. It comes from an article in Premier Christian News.
Footballer Roberto Firmino was baptised on Wednesday. The Liverpool forward shared a video of the ceremony on his Instagram page. While standing in a swimming pool, he said: “Jesus is love. There is no explanation. Just believe it. Just believe and feel the Holy Spirit.”

Firmino’s wife Lari and Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson Becker were also in the pool and hugged him after his head was raised from the water. In the caption of the video Firmino said: “I gave you my failures and the victories I will give you too. My greatest title is Your Love Jesus!
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away; behold, new things have come!”
Fellow teammate Fabinho was also in the audience watching.

Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.
