FROM THE WORLD CUP TO THE STANLEY CUP

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of JESUS every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9‭-‬11 NKJV. In 2014 the world Cup was held in Brazil. Germany and Argentina played in the final match. In overtime Mario Goetze scores a phenomenal winning goal. The crowd goes wild. The sound of the roar carries outside the stadium and can be heard as far as a quarter-mile away. In Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN the Pittsburg Penguins pull off hockey history and win two Stanley Cups back to back. The Pittsburg fans who travelled to Tennessee to support their team create pandemonium.We certainly know how to support sports heroes. What do you think would happen if Tom Brady walked into your local gym ? When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray He replied: In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.Matthew 6:9‭-‬13 NKJV. Think about this “ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN” Well John reveals in Chapter 4 of the book of Revelation how it is in Heaven. The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”Revelation 4:8‭-‬11 NKJV. No chanting D-Fence for the entire game or GOAAAAL !!! but HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD GOD ALMIGHTY ! When our Pastor calls for Praise,  let’s not sound so puny. HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD !
