I am looking to see what the senior bowl 2019 is all about. I see now it is senior players, not senior citizens. However, I can see an analogy here too about what the Lord wants to do through us. You see, the Lord Jesus is the quarterback. He controls where the ball goes. The ball is the message of His redemption and grace offered to the world.
Senior citizens, He is throwing the ball to you. He wants you and me to pass on His love, His grace, His message of redemption and forgiveness. In order to reach the goal of getting His message of forgiveness and grace, He has to leave the ball in your hands. We can run it into the end zone and lead someone to Christ. We can share the ball with other teammates (fellow Christians) in order to reach the goal and win the prize. We are in this together, with Jesus Christ as our leader.
He has His instructions, HIs gameplan, from the coach, His Father. He puts the ball in motion and directs our steps. He is calling on us to share His message of love and redemption with the world around us.
May God bless you on your journey down the field of life, running the race with patience.
1 Cor. 9:24 – “Don’t you know that the runners in a stadium all race,† but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way to win the prize.” (Whole chapter below for context)
