2015-01-31 - Jesus, Our Quarterback
The biggest sporting event of the year occurs this weekend--The Super Bowl. Millions of people will tune in, to watch the two teams play for the big trophy awarded to the champion. Each team's offense is led by a quarterback. This player touches the ball on each play. He calls the play, and makes adjustments based on the opposing team's defensive alignment. The quarterback is the team leader of the offense.
As Christians, we also have a quarterback who leads the way for us. He is our Lord and Savior--Jesus Christ. Paul says, "May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance." (2 Thessalonians 3:5) Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) Jesus, our quarterback, will show us the way. He will guide our steps along the way.
Have you put your trust in Him? Is Jesus your quarterback?
