This week, we witnessed a star being born. Third-string point guard Jeremy Lin went from obscure bench warmer to international NBA superstar. What made it possible for him, despite the pressure, to consistently score all-time highs to lead the Knicks to 5 straight victories?

The answer to both questions is simple: character. Whereas one excelled in it and was able to stay focused and execute in the Garden, the other was not able to go for the kill despite his immense talent.
Pastor Sam tells us that, in the journey of our lives, if we want to make it to our destiny and be able to claim the God-given opportunity when it arises, the deciding factor will be our character, not our ability. Listen to find out how the gospel is confronting the depth of your character.
