February 25: Believes

 

Scripture Lesson: John 20:24-29

 

Today is the birthday of former Chicago Cub player and broadcaster, Ron Santo. Santo loved the Cubs and always believed they could win. One could hear the joy in his voice as a broadcaster when they won, and his sadness when the Cubs lost. Andy McPhail, then cubs president, once said of Santo, “Very few players are so closely connected with a franchise as Ron Sasnto is to the Cubs. His extraordinary playing career, his rabid following as a broadcaster, and his many charitable endeavors for the Chicago Land area make his contributions to this franchise unique and special.” Santo always believed in the Cubs, right up until his death in December 2010.

 

In today’s scripture lesson, Thomas expressed doubt that the resurrection of Jesus actually took place. He said he would only believe if he saw the places where the nails went into Jesus’ hands and feet. When Jesus appeared again to the disciples and Thomas was there, Jesus invited Thomas to place his fingers in the scars. Jesus wanted Thomas to stop doubting and to begin to believe. Jesus said, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” Too many times we doubt God and his ability to act on our behalf. We don’t rely upon His promises and His Word. It is time to believe no matter what the world throws at us.

  1. What was the last time our faith was like Thomas’ faith?

  2. How can we live our lives like we believe in God and His promises?

  3. How do we show the Master we believe?

Jesus said we are blessed if we believe. Let’s live our lives each day like we believe in Him and His Word.

Bandwagon Wrigley fans will tell you the trendy blcaehers are the best place to sit. The blcaehers were originally set up as poor mans seats. In the 1970 s there was a TV show in Chicago called the Bleacher bums , I think it may have been a movie also,The original bleacher bums would bring baseballs to the game, and when an oposing player hit a home run thye would throw a ball back onto the field. Now people throw actual home run balls back, I think thats the gayest tradition in baseball. people sitting in left field would shout Right field sucks , and vice versa. SO are they the best seats, not by a long shot, it is just were all the party goers say you have to sit. I've heard people say that if they can't sit in the blcaehers, they won't go to a game. Most seating at Wrigley is pretty bad because they have so many obstructed views because of the polls holding up the upper deck and the roof, and back in the 80 s owners added sky boxes to create even more obstructed views. So the best seats are the first 15 rows of the lower deck and the first 10 rows of the upper deck.
