Think of your favorite sports team. Get a picture of them in your mind. Now imagine that they are having the BEST year ever! They've won almost every game and they're unbelievable!
Now imagine if someone gave you front row tickets to the championship game!
What would you do?
How would you behave if you were at the game?
Would you dress up?
Would you cheer so loud that you'd lose your voice?
Would you jump up and down?
Would you dance around at each score?
Would you spend a week reading the paper and listening to sports radio to get ready?
Would you talk to all your friends about this game?
Would you go to sleep thinking about it and wake up thinking about it?
Would you say, "Really front row...that's too close!"
Really, cheering, no..why would I cheer...what would people around me think.
Yawn...didn't they play last week, do we really have to go?
What...3 hours, no way, I am not staying 3 hours.
You want me to wear my jersey, no thanks.
Don't tell anyone we're going!!
Raise my arms at a score...those people are silly!
See friends we're all created to worship.
But what do we worship?
Some worship sports teams more than Jesus.
Some worship their family more than Jesus.
Some worship their sex life more than Jesus.
Some worship their dreams more than Jesus.
Some worship their career more than Jesus.
Some worship their stuff more than Jesus.
Some worship their coffee more than Jesus.
Some worship the earth more than Jesus.
Some worship their ego and reputation more than Jesus.
Some worship their un-forgivingness more than Jesus.
What do you worship?
What gets you excited?
Going to church or going to your favorite sporting event?
Friends, transfer that worship to Jesus, there's nothing better!
