With Super Bowl XLVIII right around the corner, football fans are excited about the showdown between the NFL’s leading offense (Denver Broncos) and its leading defense (Seattle Seahawks.) While football is a favorite pastime of mine, it’s important to remember that it isn’t everything, even if you do it for a living. I came across a video that a few of the Seattle Seahawks players had made and I think it’s a good reminder to us of not only what the real meaning of life is, but that even individuals who are at the highest level of football recognize that life without Christ is meaningless.
Remember that the act of saying the prayer is not what saves you. That would make our salvation works based. The Bible says that we need to believe in His atoning death for our sins on the cross (John 3:16). Salvation is by faith alone, not by works. We do need to acknowledge to Christ through prayer that we believe what He has done for us, but saying the prayer without believing does no good.
Who are your favorite players on the Seahawks?
