Scripture Lesson: 1 Corinthians 1:17
On this date in 1961 the circular Mets logo, designed by sports’ cartoonist Ray Gatto is unveiled. The design, which represents all five Burroughs is blue and orange, the same colors of the Dodgers and Giants which left New York and moved to California leaving New York without a National League representative.
The apostle Paul in our Scripture lesson today reminds us of our logo as a Christian, the cross of Christ. That symbol has evolved during the centuries to represent our faith. Have you ever stopped to think that the cross, a symbol of suffering and death, became the logo for our faith. The crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection in three days, are the two most important events in human history. May we never forget the price that was paid for our sins! May we always use our logo to remind us of God’s great love for us for while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!
1. What do you think of when you think of the cross?
2. Why has that become the logo for our faith?
3. What should the cross inspire us to do each day?
Plain and simple, Jesus died so we could live! The cross sums all of that up for us!
