Are You Saving For This?

We got it!
North Texas got it!!
It's big news!!!

North Texas...Dallas...Arlington actually...

We got the 2011 Super Bowl...Super Bowl XLV.

Now this may not be interesting news to you but if you turn on a radio or television in North Texas today, it's the biggest story you will hear.

It was even 'big' news on my favorite Christian radio station, KCBI. My favorite morning show host even teased the news story by saying "If you plan to attend, you need a pretty big piggy bank that will hold lots of pennies". You'll need to 'save' a lot if you plan to attend.

All the news reports are that people are making plans now and this game is over three and half years away! Everyone is talking about how 'exciting' this news is. Everyone is sharing the good news that we got the game.

But...

But think about this...

But think about the fact that this game may never even happen...

Something much bigger is coming. Something even more exciting. Something more important. Something that we need to be telling everyone about. Something that is even better news than getting the Super Bowl in your local football town.

And if this thing happens in the next few years, Super Bowl 45 will not be near as big of a news item and it the game may not happen at all.

This event is the event we should all be looking for. All be expecting. At any time, expecting. This event is the return of our Loving Lord to take His children home.

Are you sharing this most important exciting news? Are you 'saving' souls in anticipation of the big day? Are you making your own plans to be included in the big event and ensuring those you love are going with you? Or are more excited about the things of this world than those of eternity?

Matthew 24:36-39 (New Living Translation)
36 “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. 37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. 38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. 39 People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.

To the rapture...yes!
To the Super Bowl...uh, at about $1000 per seat...I don't think so!

Unless the Lord opens a door to be there some other way....hmmmm..."With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)
