This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. But it seems to lack the excitement for me that I have felt in past years. Maybe it is because the Patriots are favored to win yet another championship. Or maybe it is because I am not a fan of either of the teams playing. But the good news is there are always the commercials to look forward to watching. There is probably no other television program where the commercials draw more attention than the Super Bowl. The success or failure of some new products may rise and fall on the effectiveness of a Super Bowl ad.
If you had the money to buy a Super Bowl ad to communicate the truth of the gospel, what would your commercial look like? Who would be in your commercial? What sort of music would play in the background? Would you use special effects to draw to capture the attention of viewers?
The reality is that none of us can afford even a thirty-second ad on the big game. But we do have the chance to communicate what Christ means to us in our everyday life. This week why not try to think about what you would tell the world about the impact of Jesus in your life. Then see how you might live it out right here at home.
Sunday we will conclude a series of sermons on visioning as we consider what happens “When God Changes our Plans.” I look forward to sharing a special time of worship with you,
