MUSINGS FROM PASTOR BRAD
One of the coolest things this year in being at Boyceville football games has been our awesome cheerleaders. We have a lot of them this year and not only do they cheer at varsity games, they cheer at JV games, which is super fun. If you don’t know, I come from a family of cheerleaders. My mom was a cheerleader and a cheerleading coach. My sisters were both cheerleaders for football and basketball. I had to listen to a lot of cheerleading going on when I was a kid, especially when they would practice in our living room while I was trying to watch TV! Anyways, our cheerleaders at the Bulldog games have been super loud, which I love to hear when I’m up in the booth announcing. They bring great energy and they have had to do a lot of jumping jacks this year with all the points we have scored!
I thought of our awesome cheerleaders as I read these words Romans this morning: “If God is for us, who is against us?” This comes from Romans 8:31b. Have you ever thought about how God is cheering you on? That our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is with us, cheering for us as we make our way in the world. That image brings me comfort. I don’t think God wants us to fail, to sin, to make mistakes. I think God wants us to make the right choices, to succeed in the important ways of life. I think God cheers us on as we celebrate the joys of life.
But the other thing is that God never stops cheering for us. Our cheerleaders cheer on the Bulldogs win or lose, in warmth and in the cold, when it is a perfect night for football or when it is raining sideways with 20 mph winds. They are there for the team no matter what and God in Jesus Christ is there for you no matter what. No matter the storms, the difficulty, nothing keeping God away from cheering you on.
May you know every day that you are not alone, that Jesus Christ is there for you, loving you, forgiving you, and giving his life for you. And remember that God is cheering you on, this day and every day! May the Lord bless you today and always!
