Winning Team

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels. (Mark 8:38)
Everyone wants to be associated with the winning team.  Sometimes being a Christian can feel like rooting for the Steelers while sitting in the middle of a bunch of Packer fans.  We love our team and are faithful followers, but we keep our mouths closed.  If we cheer for our team we might get dirty looks, negative comments, or even worse.  We are too afraid to take off our coats and show our team colors.
So what should we do?  Do we stay safe and keep our mouths closed?  Do we become Packer fans just because we are surrounded by Packer fans?  NO!  We don't have to be afraid.  We don't have to keep our mouths closed.  Because no matter what it looks like, we know we are on the winning team!!!!!  The Son of Man will come in his Father's glory with the holy angels.  So don't be ashamed of Him in this world.
Be bold.  Be brave.  Cheer for your team!

Luckily, having been a Baylor football fan all my life, I have plenty of practice at this! It's sort of like yelling for the Bears in the middle of the Aggie Corps section - not many cheering for my side, but a few of those Aggies seemed to show a grudging respect for my spunk!

"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes." Romans 1:16
