The Thrill of Victory or the Agony of Defeat, “The Teams” #2


The BCS College Football Championship Game: The Teams


The teams that competed in this game were unique players with different styles and abilities



We as believers today compete in the game of life, Looking toward when the thrill of victory will be achieved entirely (1 Corinthians 15:20-57, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18- But thanks be to God . Which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ-15:57). As we compete in the game, we get bloodied up, dirty, and injured with multiple aches and pains. As the adrenaline flows, we compete with every fiber of our being (Ephesians 6:10-17). And as time runs out in the fourth quarter, we lay on the playing field exhausted and victorious, knowing we have given all, and we look toward the prize, the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14)



Jesus was a player and the Head Coach of the word’s team. He hand-picked his team, recruiting Simon, called Peter, and Andrew, his brother (Matthew 4:18-22, John 1:36-42). Then recruited James and John, James’s brother, and all four were fishermen (Mark 1:16-20). Next, he recruited Philip and Nathanael, Bartholomew (John 1:43-51), quite a pep talk! Then the Head Coach recruited Matthew, an IRS agent (Matthew 9:9-12), whose former name was Levi (Mark 2:14, Luke 5:27-29); it doesn’t mention how he recruited the other five. John was the Head Coach’s good friend and assistant coach, who also recruited some of his players (Matthew 11:1-7, Luke 7:18-24). Some other players that the Head Coach recruited didn’t want to play for him and transferred to other universities, the portal thing today (Matthew 8:19-22, 19:20-22, Mark 10:17-22, Luke 18:18-24). He also recruited some of the world’s team players to play for him (Matthew 19:23-30, Mark 10:23-31, Luke 18:25-30, John 8:30-33)



The head coach of the competitor’s world team was an experience head coach but wasn’t a player coach; he just stayed in the shadows. He went by his nickname, “The Devil, alias Satan.” He is also hand-picked his team consisting of many people with swords and clubs (Matthew 26:47). His team also included a whole band of Roman soldiers (Matthew 27:27)



By the time the game started, the Head Coach’s team was down to “one, guess who?” it wasn’t a COVID-19 Protocol thing why the others couldn’t compete; they just decided they didn’t want to compete. But, all the world’s team was fired up to compete, and they substituted freely throughout the competition. Which do you think had the advantage going into the game? What was the over/under or the point spread?
