The Play Call

In football there is way more to what happens when the ball is snapped than meets the eye.  Players in every position are making adjustments based on formations and personnel on the field.  The defense shifts to adjust to the offense so the offense sends a guy in motion to adjust to the defense and so and so on.  You see today’s quarterback’s walk up to the line and make calls and adjustments and the linebacker across respond in kind.

The players process all kinds of information.  The receiver has to decide which route on his route tree he will run based on personnel, formation, down, and distance.  The quarterback has to see the same thing he sees and they have to work together.

If all these things do not happen, nothing works right.

But it all depends on one thing…the play call.

The formation, the routes, the blocking schemes…they all depend on the play call.

So let me give you the play call for followers of Jesus Christ.

Sure there are some more complicated things to figure out about how this works out in the world and in our daily lives.  But in all reality everything boils down to these two things.

Matthew 22:36-40  “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 
Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’  ALL of the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Join us Sunday morning at Fellowship Church to learn more about THE PLAY CALL.
