NFL Star Ben Watson: "The Gospel Makes Everything Leveled At The Foot Of The Cross"

NFL megastar Ben Watson is using his platform to declare the gospel, and to spread the love of God. He made an appearance at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday to sign autographs for his new book "Under Our Skin," and made some incredible remarks, according to The Christian Post. 

"As we look at the topic of race in our country, we sometimes do not know how to go about it. For some of us, we can't talk about it because it's so painful, and we have so much emotion that we do not know what's going to come out of our mouths," Watson "As believers, we have this book called the Bible that we need to filter all of these ideas through," he said. While others are promoting "hate" and "separatism," the Bible promotes love and unity, he said.

"The Bible is our prescription on how we do that," Watson stressed. "We are the same under our skin. Our skin, especially in the context of America, our skin has been a great dividing factor, and it's something that has been used to make some people inferior and others superior. But the Gospel makes everything leveled at the foot of the cross."

"The reason we have power to live free from sin is His blood. His blood is what unites us."
