Jesus did things while He walked the earth that had never been done before. Jesus was a one-of-a-kind figure who was so distinctly different that His presence could not be ignored.
Imagine for a moment what it would be like to be a part of an organization that was so distinctly different that it stood out as having done things that no one in the world has ever done before?
The Perfect Season
The 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only National Football team that has ever had an undefeated season. In fact, the 1972 Dolphins are the only team in professional sports history to ever have a perfect season.
Jesus did things while He walked the earth that had never been done before. Jesus was so distinctly different that His presence could not be ignored.
It’s been over 40 years and only one professional team has even come close to having an undefeated season since the Dolphins did it in 1972. Every 10 years, the surviving Dolphin team members get together and raise a toast to the record.
To put that number in perspective, the coach with the second most wins in the NFL would have to win an average of 10 games every season for the next 15 years to eclipse coach Shula’s record.
Do you think this one-of-a-kind group enjoys being a part of such a distinctly different fraternity? Absolutely!
Jesus has a team that’s distinctly different as well
Likewise, those of us who are Christians have also been made part of a one-of-a-kind group of people. We are a peculiar people. We have the privilege to call ourselves, “Children of God”. We are a part of an organization that is changing the world!
Our coach has never lost a game and He will never retire. In fact, the longer He coaches, the more intense He gets (Verily, verily I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go to my Father. John 14:12).
Our coach not only coaches from the sidelines. He comes out onto the playing field and runs His plays through us to defeat our enemy and lead us on to victory.
The 1972 Dolphins season is over. The memories of their greatness can only be looked back on through books and video. But our victories in and through Jesus Christ happen daily and will never end.
Do you want to be a part of history?
I will never be a Miami Dolphin. Even back when they were in their heyday and I was in my prime I wouldn’t have made the team because I wasn’t good enough.
I’m not good enough to be on the team Jesus has hand-picked either. But my coach Jesus saw something in me. He saw something in me that I didn’t even see in myself.
He loves me. He’s not only my coach, but He’s a Father figure to me as well. He made a place for me on His team and I gladly accepted. I didn’t even have to try out!
You too can be a part of this record breaking, one-of-a-kind, world changing team. All that’s necessary is that you accept the coach, buy into His philosophy, and remain coachable.
Attend His daily workouts and dedicate your life to the coach’s teachings. I guarantee that He will make you a better player than you ever imagined you could be.
Someday the historic Miami Dolphin record will be broken. All great records are broken eventually. That is, all great records except the record of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which is still being written today.
