As I travel across the US from church to church I’ve noticed that many of them have one thing in common. There’s not much excitement in the church. Oh, you’ll run across one every now and then, but they are few and far between.
I have noticed another thing they have in common. Most of the people in the churches love their football. You start talking about OU, OSU, Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, Georgia, Alabama and they perk up like a peacock strutting his stuff.
We get more excited about a college football team than we do about a soul being saved. I know, I’ve been there and done that. It’s OK to get excited on college game day but let’s carry that same excitement to the church on the Lord’s day! After All, next year who’s gonna remember the score between OU and Tulsa or Georgia and Oregon?
What matters most is that souls are being saved and lives changed! This is the real reason to celebrate!
