“This is a football”

That is a famous quote by Vince Lombardi to remind his team of the basics of the game. Players get to wrapped up the hype of it all and forget the basic skills of blocking and tackling. Similarly, John in Revelation 2 has to remind the church in Ephesus, “don’t forget the things you did at first.” I wonder if their church was similar to our churches…getting so busy with a lot of good things, but forgetting the basics that life transformation happens one life at a time, in one-on-one relationship. It’s up to me to train well, to coordinate the game plan with the rest of the team, to carry the football, and make a good hand-off so we ultimately win the game. But I can’t forget the basics…”this is a football.”
