With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to give you some Super Bowl history. Did you know the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Houston Texans have never played in the Super Bowl?
Did you realize that it has been 19 seasons since the Raiders last played in a Super Bowl? How about 26 years for the Dallas Cowboys and 27 years for the L.A. Chargers?
Every single year in the month of August every NFL team begins their season with the hope of making the playoffs and playing in the Super Bowl. There is excitement in the training camps and high hopes from the owners, all the players and fans.
We as fans buy our team’s jerseys, hats and other memorabilia. We watch the games, we root our team on, we talk trash about the other teams at work on Monday, and we suffer with every single loss.
There are good times and bad, we love them and hate them, and so many times we question and second- guess what the coach, general manager and owner are doing. But through it all, we stick up and stick with our team. Through thick and thin, we are always there supporting them.
Thinking about all of this, I would love to see our communities come together and show this kind of commitment to the local church and God Himself.
God has not gone through any championship drought, He wins everything, every single day, and He is always there for us when we need him.
Unlike the coach, GM and owner, God really does know it all and does what is best, whether we realize it or not. Let me encourage you during this season of your life, enjoy the game – the Super Bowl should be a lot of fun to watch. But don’t forget everything God has brought you through in your life. Let’s follow the God of the Universe better and closer than we follow our favorite team. Unlike your team or mine, God never ever loses.
