Imagine if professing Christians in America loved Jesus more than sports, entertainment, and worldly lusts.

    I fell for this a few weeks ago, hadn’t watched a football game in forever but I wanted to check out Tebow mania and the Broncos playoff game. I was so grieved in my spirit over my own backslidden ways. I hadn’t planned out to spend three hours in the word or prayer but I thought I would treat my flesh a bit.

    I used to be a sports fanatic. I even joined the church fantasy football leauge. The lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. We are so weak in these matters and should never assume we have arrived at some great level of mortification. The flesh has to be crucified every day.

    I do not judge other brethren who watch a sports game (though I judge myself on this matter). Are you caught up in it though? Meditate on 1 John 2. Lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, pride of life – do not love the world. The superbowl is designed to get you to love the world, to lust with your eyes, that is why so much money is spent on the advertising. It is meant to make you unhappy with the providence that God has supplied in your life and covet after the riches of egypt. The big play – the chill up your spine when a crucial play is made near the end of the game. That might just be the pride of life.

    If you are mature, your way of life is one of holiness to the Lord, and you want to watch the game, do not let anyone judge you. Judge yourself though and be on guard against your own flesh.

    Then, by golly, we’d have a real church.

    I’m going to ask you a question, and I’m going to say it in very great love right now. Who told you, who told you its ok to sit for hours drinking in filth in front of television? Who told you it’s not idolatry to sit and watch something thats totally corrupted out of the pits of hell. Who told you that it’s not corrupt? Who told you it’s not an idol? Was it Jesus who told you that? Was it the Holy Ghost that told you that? …I hear God say you don’t sit in the seat of scornful, I hear a scripture that says ill set no evil thing before my eyes. I hear the word that says bring no abomination into your house. -David Wilkerson
