MUSINGS FROM PASTOR BRAD
Today the NFL season begins and I’m very excited because I love watching NFL football (yes, I know the first game was Thursday. But it really starts to today. To me at least). There is a weird thing going on amongst the fan base of my beloved Chicago Bears: hope. Why is there hope? Well, the Bears drafted a new quarterback in the first round named Justin Fields who had an incredible career at Ohio State and seems to have a lot of the skills needed to be a successful quarterback in the National Football League. I’ve been asked my many of you what I thought about this new player and my response is always the same: I assume that since he is wearing a Bears jersey he will stink. I know, a glum take by me.
However, the overall fan base is not feeling that way. They are full of hope, believing that Justin Fields is the answer to our decades of terrible quarterback play (want to know how bad it is? Check out this article right here: Ranking All 45 Bears Quarterbacks Since the Team Last Won the Super Bowl – The Ringer). They are thinking that Fields is going to be the savior of our franchise and help us to get to the Super Bowl. Justin Fields has brought them hope and hope is a powerful thing.
You know who brings hope in our daily lives? The actual Savior, Jesus Christ, the Messiah. This Jesus comes defeating sin and death, forgiving us of our sin, promising to be with us always till the end of the age, and reminding us that he is our resurrection and life. Jesus comes every day to you to lift you up, give you strength, comfort you in the midst of your hardship and grief, and bearing your burdens. Jesus is a real Savior who day after day gives his life for your life, day after day reminds you that you are loved, day after day giving you grace and mercy. Jesus has come to save you and give you hope. Always.
Look, I don’t know if Justin Fields is going to lead the Bears to the promised land of a Super Bowl victory, but I do know this: my Savior Jesus Christ will bring me to eternal life. I know that as I cry after another Bears defeat to the Green Bay Packers, the Lord will be there to comfort me. I know that in Jesus I always have hope, for my faith resides not in a quarterback but in the Son of God, the Word made flesh, the Messiah, Jesus Christ. May you place your faith in this same Savior and receive the hope that all receive in Jesus Christ. Thanks be to God!
