This next Sunday is the Super Bowl. Arizona and Pittsburgh will meet on the field to decide who is the champion of XVIII. What I've noticed is that a whole lot of people who WON'T be on that field are talking about this game and using the word "we". You know, "We're gonna win on Sunday." "We're gonna destroy you guys." "We're gonna bring the trophy home to Phoenix."
Now I'm as big a sports fan as the next guy, and I've talked about the Broncos or Sooners or Lobos and used the word "we" lots of times, too. But the truth is, the only real we in the deal is the guys on the teams.
For those of us who love Jesus and want the life He has for us, the same thing is true. The only place this life really works is on the field. Faith is not an academic exercise - it is a way of life. And I've found that faith is a whole lot more real when it is lived than when it is studied. What do you think? Give a listen and let us know.
