As the 2009 Superbowl aproaches, I pause to remember that what matters is not which team wins, or loses, but is it a good game? Is the game one sided, or was it a good contest. I do not particularly care which team will win. What does matter, though, is whether or not we are on the winning team for all eternity. Jesus and Lucifer are in a constant battle for our souls. Jesus has already won the battle of all eternity, but Lucifer (Satan) refuses to admit defeat, even though he knows his time is short. He knows his end is in defeat, but still acts as a spoiler, trying to fool, and lead away as many of God's children as he can. God's Word, the Bible, says that the devil is prowling the world, like a lion looking for souls to devour, because he knows his time is short. Jesus paid for our debt, yes our debt, as all sin separates us from God. Since He was sinless, He died for us. He is the quarterback of God's winning team. The team that wins for all eternity. So repent of your sin, and join the winning team. Say yes to Jesus, and ask Him to forgive you of your sins.
