Zach Johnson may be the Open Champion but for him Jesus is all that matters

Last night American golfer Zach Johnson won the Open at St. Andrews.  I then discovered that he is a Christian with a living faith in the Lord Jesus.

Here’s something of his testimony given in 2012.

In Early in the winter of 2002, I gave my life to the Lord.

Since then, my priorities have certainly changed. It’s not Zach’s agenda anymore. I refer to the years after high school and before making my decision as my “blind years.” Now, I can see.

Before I was one, I always thought being a Christian would be boring. In reality, it has been the complete opposite. There is joy, fulfillment and even fun! There also are challenges and trials, but knowing that my foundation lies in Jesus and what He has done for me is what is important. It’s all that matters.

And here’s an article in today’s Daily Star (a newspaper that has never featured in this blog before now!)
