Sooner or Razor

You know it occurred to me, SOONER or RAZOR, the Luckeyes might make it back to the National Championship Game.  Beep, beep, beep what is that?  That is the sound of The Ohio State University Football team backing into the National Championship Game.  The beloved Sooners are 3 point favorites in the Big Twelve Championship game.  The Georgia Bulldogs are rooting for the Pittsburgh Panthers so for the first time it is possible a 2 loss team could make the National Championship Game and they (the Bulldogs) did not even win the eastern conference of the Mighty SEC.  Not likeley.  West Virginia is favored by 27 over Pittsburgh and they do look like they could beat anybody.  Tennessee is playing LSU for the SEC title.

I have to admit it.  I was rooting for Oregon to get beat.  Yes, I was rooting for Arkansas to beat LSU last Friday.  I did not see the end of the game as we had practice on Friday night but kudos to the Razorbacks for knocking LSU out of the Sugar Bowl National Championship game.  Now all over the country Buckeyes have become Sooner fans.  I got a phone call from my daughter on Sunday.  As usual I missed the call but her message said she was going somewhere really cool.  As it turns out after the Razors put the Buckeyes into a one game playoff (by proxy) for the National Championship by the Oklahoma Sooners in the Big Twelve Championship game.  As it turns out the Big Twelve Championship game is in San Antonio this year.  As it turns out Martha and Rob were able to procure a couple of tickets to the game Saturday and will be there with their OSU jerseys and game gear on!  How exciting.  Odds are they won’t be the only Buckeyes in attendance or watching the game.  There will also be many Buckeye fans watching the game on TV.  Probably Coach Tressel will watch the game, too.  I am rooting for the Illini to go to the Rose Bowl this year.  Aren’t you?  Well, I must be off…  P.S.  Darren McFadden for the Heisman…

Thanksgiving…

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. (Luke 17:15-16)

Thankfulness is foundational to the Christian life. Thankfulness is a conscious response that comes from looking beyond our blessings to their source. As Christians, we have been forgiven, saved from death, and adopted as God’s children. There could be no better reason for a grateful heart!

Lepers in Jesus’ day were social outcasts. Their highly contagious condition ostracized them from those they loved. When ten lepers encountered Jesus, they desperately implored Him to show them mercy. Jesus sent them to the priest. As they obeyed, they were healed! These ten men had been forbidden to enter their own villages, to live in their own homes, to work in their own jobs, or even to touch their own children. Imagine what unrestrained joy must have filled them as they ran back home again!

One of the lepers, a Samaritan, stopped and ran back to thank Jesus. Samaritans were normally shunned by the Jews, but Jesus had healed him! Jesus asked him, “Where are the others?” Ten lepers had been healed. Ten lepers were reveling in their newfound health. Ten men were joyfully rushing to share the good news with those they loved. But only one considered the Source of that blessing and stopped to thank and worship the One who had given him back his life.

We, too, have been healed and made whole by the Savior. We are free to enjoy the abundant life the Savior has graciously given us. Could we, like the nine lepers, rush off so quickly to glory in our blessings without stopping to thank our Redeemer? God looks for our thanks. Our worship, prayers, service, and daily life ought to be saturated with thanksgiving to God (Phil. 4:6).  (From Blackaby Ministries)  http://www.blackaby.org/devarchive.asp
