The Dallas Cowboys came into Thursday Night’s game against the Washington Redskins with three straight losses. Their offense had disappeared and they looked like a team that was done.

Enter Alfred Morris.

The veteran running back, filling in for the suspended Ezekiel Elliott, rushed for 127 yards and scored his first touchdown of the season, helping the Cowboys to a 38-14 win.

Morris, a follower of Christ, also used his NFL platform to share the gospel of Jesus on his cleats for the league’s #MyCauseMyCleats initiative.

Morris chose the Salvation Army as his initiative and shared a scripture verse at the bottom of his shoe from the Gospel of Matthew.

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26

May we all remember that there is hope found in God through his son Jesus Christ, and that truly, all things are possible through Him.
