Super Bowl!

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here!

Can I be truthful here (& hope I'm not alone) in saying I'm into the Super Bowl for the social aspect of being with friends & possibly seeing the really neat commercials.  I also get an inside kick seeing true fans sometimes jump up at a play, talk or yell to the screen - showing their great enthusiasm for their team.

I got to thinking about what is behind these plays that have fans in a frenzy.  It's the play from the play book, right?  


The book containing descriptions of all the plays & strategies used by a team, often with accompanying diagrams.  Surely the players were issued their plays to be studied & memorized before the season even began.

This book lead me to the thought of the great play book, the Bible. In this play book, Jesus gave the play-by-play.  He gave us His words so we might KNOW the play book for our life.  

Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.  
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.  John 5:12-13 NIV


Though I am not a football fan, the play book still piques my interest because in the simplest of terms, a play book lets each of us KNOW what way to go in life.

And this is eternal life, that they may know, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.  John 17:3 NKJV

Football is such an American phenomena and yet the play book of your life is truly a greater event!   

Do you want to receive the play?  Seek Him with your heart, search for Him in His word and allow Him to direct you in the winning play!   The winning play is living out the full expression of YOU, through Him.

THAT YOU MAY KNOW!

Four words?  That YOU may KNOW!  No gray area here.  Do you know?  You can...don't wait another day :)

  1. Pretty cool, using football strategy as a tool to preach the Word...talk about an inside play!
