Big GAME Weekend

This weekend the Giants and the Patriots will face off in the NFL championship game we know as the Super Bowl.  Even though my team the Dallas Cowboys, America’s team that is, won’t be in the game, I am still planning to watch and enjoy the game.

The things that go on around this game are big.  Everything is big.  There are big parties, big meals planned, big celebrations, big advertisement and more.  Most people look forward to this game.

So to this day, rural Jews living in remote villages celebrate an annual festival and holiday on the appointed day in late winter, when they rejoice and send gifts of food to each other.

No.  The game is not one of the festivals that God called us to celebrate each year, yet we can take this opportunity to share with people things that will last long after the game is over.  God is able to do more and to take us places that no one else can take us to.

We are continuing our series called Margin this weekend at The Community Fellowship, and I am excited about what God is going to do as we allow Him to create much needed margin in our lives, more specifically margin in our schedules. 

Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.

The game can be a spiritual experience, but it can also be an evil experience.  I am not talking about who you pull for or who wins the game.  Use the time God has given and the opportunities that He provides to let others see Him.

So, who are you pulling for?  Friends are trying to convince me who to pull for, yet no one has gotten me to their side.  Hahhaaaaa.

But this will be your opportunity to tell them about me.

Use the opportunity God gives you.  The big game may open doors that not open at other times.
