Touchdown! Aug 27 2012
"... this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." - Acts 1:11
In most sports, there is one feat that galvanizes the fans. In golf, it's a hole-in-one. In basketball, it's the slam-dunk. In baseball, it's the home run. But in football, it's the touchdown. It always brings fans to their feet.
The objective is simple. The team with the most points wins and usually that means the most touchdowns. But the greatest and most exciting touchdown has yet to occur, and when it does, the players on the winning team will go wild with joy. Those on the losing team will be devastated with defeat.
The Bible tells about it in the Old and New Testaments. The Messiah will touch down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem when Jesus returns.
Do you believe it? Will you be ready for the ultimate feat?
How you respond in faith to Christ determines whether you are on the winning team or losing team - forever.
It is my hope that you'll be able to celebrate the touchdown when Jesus comes!
