A Trinity in New England

For those who aren’t Patriots fans, you might want to surf on over to a Joel Osteen blog, or maybe a Hannity commentary.

I’m about to employ an analogy that’ll make you queasy.

Let me put this in perspective.

I just finished reading the book, Tom Brady vs. the NFL, (the case for football’s greatest quarterback).

Ravens fans are licking their chops, (since the AFC 2012 season title game is later today) and Packers fans are seeing Starrs–named Bart.

I’m really not here to argue the premise of the book.

It’s a given that most won’t agree–unless you call chowder, “chowdah.”

I’m trying to make a simple analogy, that really does involve us all.

The New England Patriots, once again, have the chance to become the first team to win a Super Bowl in two different decades, under the same coach and quarterback, with a 10 year spread between their first Super Bowl win in ’02.

Only the head coach and quarterback remain from that original championship team.

Hold your nose Steelers fans.

In so many ways, God the Father and the Son, with their decade after decade of Truth, are like that.

They never change.

What does change are the players around them.

That’s where the Holy Spirit comes in.

We are the disciples and apostles today, our parents were those of yesterday, and our children will take our place tomorrow.

Yet, the head coach and quarterback, so to speak, are the only constant.

That makes us an integral part of the Trinity, as it relates to the telling of the Gospel.

And…it’s because of the Holy Spirit that we’re on the roster being melded into God’s history book.

Isaiah 62 talks about the Father’s plan for victory;

For Zion’s sake I will not be silent,
for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
until her vindication shines forth like the dawn
and her victory like a burning torch.

The torch symbolizes a flame of glory that never goes out.

Without good coaching and the best quarterback, that just can’t happen.

With it, well…we call that a Dynasty.

Live it and be proud.

That’s the team we’re all a part of.

I really don’t care about the results of the game later today.

Call me Pinocchio.
