The Party to End All Parties


San Francisco versus the Baltimore Ravens. That’s the matchup this weekend for the Super Bowl, the culmination of a long (and yet seemingly short) season of football. My wife always rejoices when we get here because it means the football season is finally over.

Of course, with the Super Bowl also comes some great parties. Whether you like football or not, there’s a good chance you’ve been to a Super Bowl party. Maybe you went for the joy of watching the game with other fans. Maybe you went to watch the commercials and see what clever new ads are released. Maybe you just went to be with others and visit.

Whatever your reasons, getting invited to the big party is always fun. Maybe it’s not a Super Bowl party, but a birthday celebration. Or a wedding. Or perhaps it’s just a party for the sake of getting together and having fun.

God has invited us to a special party, a party unlike any others. It kicks off when He returns and will last forever:

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 22:12-13

What will happen at the end of time? For those who trust in Jesus, we get to start a never-ending celebration. You don’t have to bring anything. You don’t have to clean your house and get it perfect for the big day. You simply need to come. Jesus is calling you, inviting you to trust in Him and join Him for the party to end all parties.

The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. Revelation 22:17

Super Sunday

It was good to be back from New Orleans and at church with all my church friends/family.  It felt like I was gone for weeks instead of days!

Crazy morning today as I was down 2 small group leaders, but it gave me a chance to sit in on one of the groups which was fun.  Picked up a few more sign-ups for the Sawmill Creek trip and had a good number of sales at the Scrip table. 

I’m looking forward to relaxing this evening and watching the Superbowl, especially the commercials.  I’m curious to see what the tone will be in the current economy as companies spend $5 million on production and airtime while people are losing jobs left and right.  I’m especially interested in the 1 second comericial.
