Former NFL Lineman and author Ed McGlasson on his testimony and fatherhood

Former NFL lineman and author Ed McGlasson explains the power fathers have in naming their children

Ed McGlasson played for the New York Jets, the LA Rams, and the New York Giants. In 1983 he was in training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles when one night God wanted to talk football.

Ed recalls, “And He said, ‘I want you to give this up and preach the gospel.’ And I’m thinking I’m in my dream. ‘No, no. This can’t be You, Lord.’ The very next day, on the very first play, I’m blocking all-pro Nose Guard Charlie Johnson for the Philadelphia Eagles, and I post on my right leg, my good leg. I blow my knee out.”

Ed’s career in the NFL was over. He followed God’s game plan and became a pastor, married and started a family. He turned to the Bible to help him in his new role as a father. Today, after 20 plus years of fatherhood, he shares what he’s learned in his book called The Difference a Father Makes. He explains just how important a father’s words are to shaping his children’s destiny and their identity.

“Our tongue has great power, the Bible says. We can either bless or curse with it. We can speak into our children, ‘I believe in you. You’re a champion.’ Or you can say, ‘Hey you nitwit, did you get your homework done?’

In Ed’s book, he talks about the four most powerful words a child can hear from their father.

Edward McGlasson“’I believe in you.’ That’s what they want,” he says. “Imagine a life where you know that the person who’s backing you up is not only smiling over you, but is whispering in your ear, ‘You can do this.’”

So what about adults who have never heard those words from their father?

“There’s a guy who came 2000 years ago Who wants to return those words to you, and His name is Jesus. He came to bring that to us. Not only incredible relationship with Him and His words and all that Scripture promises but the returning of the voice of the Father into the life of creation.”
