“THE REAL NFL!”

1 John 5:1, 4

INTRODUCTION

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  After 256 games, 16 games during a 17-week period, the Wild Card, Divisional, and Conference Championships rounds, only two teams remain standing.  By tonight’s end, the NFL will crown a new Super Bowl Champion.  Fans across the world will offer reasons why their team won’t hoist the Lombardi trophy.  Some are legitimate while others amount to nothing more than excuses.  But, whether it was a missed call, last-second play, or simply being out coached and outplayed, fans will go into the offseason saying, “We’ll be back next year!”

Super Bowl Sunday arrests the attention of billions of people worldwide.  But do the things of God arrest our attention in the same way!?!?  Some of us schedule our lives around game time rather than dictating our schedules around GOD TIME!  Believe it or not, God drafted and ordained you to be an owner in THE REAL NFL:  NEW FAITHFUL LIVING!!!  Too many of us are not performing or are  underperforming in the game of life.  This is not God’s will!!!  God expects us to rise and soar to new heights and dimensions to win for the Kingdom’s sake and maximize our Kingdom-faith ownership status!  Today’s message is simple:  You’re a faith champion in the REAL NFL!!!
