It's Super Bowl Week leading up to the most anticipated professional football game of the new year. February 1, 2015 is Super Bowl Sunday! Are you excited? Are you prepared? Will you be watching on TV or will you be there, on the sidelines? What's the menu for the party? Hot wings, pretzels, Subway sandwiches, chocolate desserts, etc. What is your favorite part of the game? The half-time show or the commercials? The Super Bowl is an event that attracts millions.
Now imagine this. February 1, 2015 is Super Roll Sunday. Although, it's an event that happens every day and you got your ticket the day you were born. You're a player in this game of life and death this Sunday. Your number is up. You made the Super Roll. Are you prepared? Have you planned for the big day? Many years you've watched others participate, but today, it's you on the field in the middle of the action. This event attracts thousands daily. Are you excited? Probably not. Everyone (even Jesus) wants to live another day or as the famous Bond movie implies "Die Another Day". Job 14:15-16 says "Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands. For now thou numberest my steps:..." What's the favorite part of Super Roll? Hearing THE LINE JUDGE say "Well done my good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord!"
After we thank him and get up from a bowed position at Jesus' feet, I can see us now...stretching both arms straight up in total praise, closing our eyes in profound joy and whispering...
Enjoy the game,
The Happy Handicap
