Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God.” (Hebrews 13:17 NLT)
Tonight, two teams that have proven their skill & heart will battle for the title of World Champions of Football. Man, I love the Super Bowl! (And especially the commercials!) For football fans, this is one of the greatest days!
But for the Christ Lifer, every Sunday is super. I have the privilege of leading the “field” every weekend with a fantastic team, fighting a very real Opponent, helping others overcome the evils of depression, hatred, sorrow & more, one yard after another, until we eventually hit our End Zone of Freedom and start over with other souls. Sometimes we experience a setback & one of our own gets intercepted, but we fight to get them back, fighting to keep our Enemy from scoring against us.
Every Sunday is truly Super! And one day, if we’ve fought the fight right, we will stand before our Savior & be crowned as Champions, our title that will never be stripped away! Come to church today! Your team is waiting for you! It’s a good day to win & you are loved!
