Winning The Super Bowl Of Life - Outline

on on . .

Here's the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.  Join us at 6 PM EST.

I believe these definitions that will sort of set the atmosphere for Super Bowl evening service. The definitions stirred in me through a sermon that I read years ago by a pastor Dallas Henry from Maine.   Some of the definitions are his, some of them are mine…but Google gets some credit and God gets all the glory.

Backfield-in-Motion – Walking out the sanctuary during the sermon to visit the restroom or water fountain.

Bench warmer - Those who do not sing, pray, work, or apparently do anything but sit.

Blitz - The rush for the restaurants following the closing prayer of morning worship.

Blocking - Standing inside the church door complaining to the pastor about the sermon.

End Run - Getting out of church quickly, without speaking to any guest or fellow member.

Extra point - What you receive when you tell the preacher the sermon was too short.

Flex Defense - The ability to allow absolutely nothing said during the sermon to affect your life.

Fumble - A lousy sermon or to be politically correct, maybe I should say that it was a sermon for which the pastor was insufficiently prepared.

Halfback Option - The decision of 50% of the congregation not to return for the evening service.

Halftime - The period between Sunday school and worship when many choose to leave.

Illegal motion - Leaving before the altar call or the final prayer.

Instant Replay - The preacher loses his notes and falls back on last week’s illustrations.

Interference – Clipping your fingernails during the sermon.

Personal Foul – The only time you open your mouth during praise and worship is to make snide jokes about the singing abilities of the team members.

Quarterback sneak - Sunday school teachers entering the church building five minutes after Sunday school begins.

Sacked – When you think the pastor’s message applies to everybody in church but you.

Staying in the Pocket - What happens to a lot of money that should be given to the Lord’s work.

Sudden Death - What happens to the attention span of the congregation if the preacher goes "overtime."

Trap - You’re called on to pray and are asleep.

Two-minute Warning - The point at which you realize the sermon is almost over and begin to gather up your children and belongings.
