I’m often asked by Husker fans “How is the team going to do this season?” It’s difficult question to answer because so many factors change during the course of a football season. However, the most important question I’m asked when speaking to groups is “How can I be saved?” This is the question a man named Nicodemus wanted Jesus to answer. While my answer here is brief, I trust that the Lord will make this clear in your heart and mind.
The one and only one God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him. However, we have sinned and cut ourselves off from him. Because of God’s love for us, God became a man in Jesus, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross. He fulfilled the law himself by taking on the punishment we deserved for the sins of all those who ever turn and trust him. He rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted Christ’s sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted. Now, God calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ, we are born again into a new life, an eternal life with God.
While I can’t promise we’ll win every game this season, I know the Lord will be pleased whenever our players and coaches glorify Him in their attitudes and actions.
