The Assist

In soccer it used to be that goalscorers were the most valuable members of the team, but in 1986 all that began to change. Goalscorers now share the limelight with another key element in the process, that is the player who provides the assist. An assist is a contribution by a player which helps to score a goal. Most commonly, an assist is credited to a player for passing or crossing the ball to the scorer. It may also be awarded to a player whose shot rebounds (off a defender, goalkeeper or goalpost) to a teammate who scores; or to a player who wins a penalty kick for another player to convert. In invitation we have often our focus on the invited person, but we must not forget the inviter, they are the one who plays a vital role in the invitation process by assisting with an invite. Assist someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church. Someone else might reap the results of your assist!
