COMMENT: Well folks, Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner. Some of you who are reading this comment were not even born when the first Super Bowl game was played in January 15, 1967 as an agreement between the NFL and its younger rival, the American Football League. Well, that’s enough of that “history lesson”; let’s get down to the nitty gritty. As you know, the New England Patriots will face the New York Giants this coming Sunday. I thought it very interesting how the Giants made it to The Big Show. Lawrence Tynes, the Giant field goal kicker, missed 2 of them in the final quarter. If he had made the last kick, the game would have been over but it went into overtime. On TV it was obvious that his coach was livid after the second miss. Green Bay won the toss and was on the offense. It looked like it was all over for the New Yorkers. But low and behold the Giants intercepted a pass from Bret Favre and after a few plays, Tynes had another opportunity to win the game. With faith in his ability and without the permission of the coach, he ran onto the field and kicked a booming 47 yard field goal that sent the Packers packing. (Sorry, for the pun, I just couldn’t resist!) In the Scriptures we find some similar situations. It looked like Joseph would spend the rest of his life in jail. It looked like the Egyptians would decimate the Israelites when they were trapped with the Red Sea in front of them and the enemy behind. It looked like the lions in the den would make a delicious meal out of Daniel. Right now, you may be facing a difficult situation and it may look like there is no hope. Take your eyes off of the situation and look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.(Hebrews 12:2)
