The Ultimate Cornerman

Muhammad Ali is arguably the most famous professional boxer of all time, with more titles and awards than one would think possible in a lifetime. You can read about them here. Although he was the fighter in the ring, he was never alone. His trainer and cornerman, Angelo Dundee, is the one who made Ali float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Dundee described his job as a cornerman as “a surgeon, an engineer, and a psychologist.”

As followers of Jesus, we have someone better than a surgeon-engineer-psychologist in our corner. We have the presence and the power of God–the personal, indwelling Holy Spirit.

As our trainer and cornerman, the Holy Spirit is always there to lead, to guide, to convict, to comfort, to strengthen… and to remind… to remind us of our spiritual adoption.

That we have a Savior whose blood has made us clean forever. Accepted forever. Treasured by the Father forever.

Romans 8:15-16 , “15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’ 16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit [reminds us] that we are children of God.”

Let’s be reminded. Together. Today.
