To get the Word to Non-Christians
The rules are that you can’t catch the ball out of bounds, or beyond the end of the end zone. So the quarter-back must throw the ball accurately for his receivers to catch it.
One of the most spectacular plays in football is when a team has the ball behind their own 25 yard line, then the quarter-back takes a big chance in calling the play. When the ball is “snapped,” the quarter-back throws a long bomb pass to his receiver in the end zone, and he catches it.
Whenever you see a play like this, pretend that you are the quarter-back who is a Christian, the football is the Word of God, and your receiver is a non-Christian. If and when you throw the ball to him, you tell him about God, but you have to throw the ball accurately, or deliver a good message to him for him to catch, or accept the Word. But if you throw inaccurately, or deliver a bad message, he might not catch the ball, or accept the Word of God. Let’s try to make a long-bomb completion for God this week.
