If you asked many Americans what makes today special, they would answer by informing you that it is Super Bowl Sunday. Millions upon millions of people will gather around their TVs and watch the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots. Both teams have worked tirelessly to make it to the pinnacle of American Football. Both teams have done all the right things (and a few wrong ones) to get the opportunity to play for the Lombardi Trophy and be crowned the best football team in the world. In the run up to the Super Bowl each team goes through a series of press conferences to give the media and the fans an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes. I usually don’t pay much attention to these, but one stuck out to me this week that motivated this bulletin article. There is a running back who plays for the Seahawks named Marshawn Lynch. Mr. Lynch doesn’t do press conferences. He despises talking to the media and holds a negative opinion of their role in sports. Over and over the National Football League has fined him for refusing to show up to his mandatory press conferences. Now that it is the week before the Super Bowl, the NFL informed Mr. Lynch that they would fine him 500,000 dollars if he didn’t show up and answer questions. With that new motivation Marshawn decided to show up, but not in the way the NFL had hoped. For five minutes he stood there and answered all the questions the exact same way. Every time they asked him a question he responded by saying, “I’m just here so I don’t get fined.” No matter the question, it was always the same answer. It is absolutely miserable to have to be some where you don’t want to be. Mr. Lynch went because he had to. It was a requirement, and he didn’t want to face the consequences of not going. I remember a time in my life years ago when this is why I showed up to Church. I didn’t go because I wanted to be there; I went because I didn’t want to have to watch football on Sunday afternoon with an angry wife giving me the silent treatment and the evil eye every time she walked through the room. Then, over time, for various reasons my perspective changed. Now the gathering of the saints is something I greatly look forward to. Hebrews 10:24–25 - 24And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. I want you to ask yourself this morning, why are you here? Is it because you want to be, or because you have to be? The answer is far more important than you might think. **Wade WELCOME TO THE ROLLA CHURCH OF CHRIST!
