Sunday sermon: The moment

[121]
Posted: Jan 8, 2017 8:13 PM
 

We'll start with one of my favorite folks in the Bible ... long-suffering Habakkuk. If you've ever uttered the phrases "How long, oh Lord, how long?" you know what he was feeling. And finally ... FINALLY ... the Almighty answered:

"Write this, and write it large, that those who read it may run and tell others. The vision hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay."

I am convinced that moment arrives tomorrow night for the Sons of Clemson.

I'm not alone, I know. I've heard from friends who sat with me through losses to Duke, to Wake Forest, to people we had no business losing to because the vision had not yet arrived.

"You know," they say. "We can win. It just feels like a win."

I hear them, and I nod. I know that feeling ... no, I know that CERTAINTY. This is not a team that is coming in scared, or wide-eyed. This is a team, a tribe of young men who know what must be done.

The family is gathering, a river of orange flowing down I-95, down I-75, the cadence cheers echoing at rest tops and Waffle Houses. There are no strangers in this brotherhood of orange, just a sense that this is where they need to be. To celebrate, to savor something that has been elusive for so long.

Some are too young to know anything but success, who never knew sitting in soul-piercing misery as the team fell short. More of us have been through more ... much more.

When Dabo said we wouldn't wait 34 years to be back in this game, we believed. When we had to make plays, we KNEW we would. When naysayers said Ohio State would be more than these Tigers could handle, we just smiled.

We knew. We could feel it.


Last year we saw the elephant, and gave the beast all it could handle.

This year, it's our turn. We will skin the elephant, hang its hide on the wall and funnel beer through its still-twitching trunk.

Write this, and write it large, that those who read it may run and tell others.

This is the moment. This is the game. Clemson isn't coming. We have arrived. And let nothing stand in our way.

One heart, one voice, one outcome.

Finish it, Clemson.

It is time.

I went to church too. The preacher talked about Joshua and how he told the Jews not to worship other gods. Then he gave us a bunch of example pagan gods that the people worshipped back then. The preacher then told us that we have gods too that we shouldn't be worshiping like material things, our jobs, and he even mentioned football. That reminded me of Saban. Bama fans worship him. They think he's a god.


I am Saban ... look upon my works, ye mighty

Is it right to take God's Word about things as vitally important as sin, salvation and eternal judgment and apply those words to football? I say no.
