My family and I play a rather trivial game called: Fantasy Football – It’s a great way to take more interest in the Saturday and Sunday results – if you’re into football!
This week my son sent me an excited text – He’d gone top of our family league! I took a look at his team to discover that he’d made an inspired signing: none other than Jesus! Well Gabriel Fernando Jesus (new to Manchester City to be exact!)
I couldn’t resist the temptation of texting back that I was glad to see that he’d seen the light!
Jesus of Nazareth didn’t play football, but he was (and is) truly inspirational. His words were dynamic; his miracles extraordinary; and his charisma drew people from hundreds of miles around and still reaches people today.
In 2000 years there has never been such an inspirational human being who showed us what God is like.
Lent is the ideal time to find out more. I have magazine copies of Luke’s gospel that I’d love to give you a copy of. And in that way, you too can discover for yourself what makes Jesus the most important signing of your life.
