Today is a big day for football fans and players. Today is Super Bowl 49. Your team may be playing in the Super Bowl. Congratulations! But let’s dig into this a little bit. Let’s look at this 12 number. Tom Brady’s football # is 12, Seattle Seahawks claimed last year to have a 12th man (fans) But when thinking of the number 12, first comes to mind… the 12 disciples. So it’s 12 vs. 12th man.
Does God care who wins the Super Bowl? Probably not. But He care, if you win or lose to praise and worship no matter what. We know, the media doesn’t interview the losers, but the winners instead. Personally, my football team did not make it. But who am I cheering for? Since I have seen both team win the Super Bowl before. I would have to choose the Seattle Seahawks. Why? Because they are unashamed of Jesus! I have seen the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl before and no one mentioned Jesus or anything and the Seattle Seahawks did mention Jesus last year. It’s all about Jesus.
You could say, “so & so is a Christian” example “Drew Brees” I have heard he is a Christian but when he won a Super Bowl he didn’t mention anything, not even, “I thank God.” But you say, you have to mention Jesus to be a Christian, true. But God blessed you with the stage your on, use it for His glory. I have to relate to Matthew 10:33 “But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.”
And looking at time wise, we don’t have much time left on this earth, one day the Holy Spirit will be removed from the earth. So after that, who cares who wins the Super Bowl. But right now, we have the Holy Spirit and we need to cheer Jesus to be heard around the world. Yes there are Christians on the Patriots but their voices may not be heard. Super Bowl is almost a holiday. More people watch the Super Bowl then any other thing. So pray for souls to be saved. If your not cheering for Jesus’ name to be heard, your cheering for your selfish reasons. I admit, being a Cowboy fan I would and have cheered for the opposing team, because I know they would give Jesus all the glory.
