Super Bowl Sunday, Every Empty Seat is a Serious Matter

February 12th, 2023

The Bible carries the most incredible message in the world. It has the power to transform our thoughts and, ultimately, our lives. We love to quote its verses to encourage ourselves and others in difficult times and when giving advice or counseling––but sometimes, those verses get taken out of context. What happens when we miss the original intent and meaning of the most powerful message in the world? Can it hurt, and does it matter?

It's important to try not to make the Bible say something it didn't say. In this message series, Pastor Lance will cover some of our favorite and most misused verses. We'll learn the context of the verses and what they really mean. We hope this message series, The Bible Didn't Say That, strengthens and encourages your faith.

The Super Bowl is footballs most exciting event. It's not surprising to see the high demand for seats at the game. People will pay top dollar to be in the stands, cheering on their favorite team. However, once the final whistle blows and the game is over, those expensive seats lose value, and the memories will fade.

Unlike a sporting event, the seats in the church hold a far greater value. Those seats play a bigger role than just holding us up. In those seats, there is the power to change lives and impact eternity.

Having seats at the Super Bowl is a big deal. What if we valued the seats in church like that? What if we looked at the empty seats around us and had the conviction that somebody needed to be sitting in them? What if, instead of seeing a seat, we envision a person?

In this message, Pastor Lance talks about how serious an empty seat is in church.
