Without Searching Google, “Who Won the 1989 Super Bowl?”

So, what’s your reaction to that question? “Who cares?”

Are you racking your brain, pounding your fist on the table saying, “I know who won that game, it’s on the tip of my tongue?”

Are you in the middle of an internet search to find out that the 49ers beat the Bengals 20 to 16?

Whatever your reaction might be, what was so important to so many people on January 22nd, 1989, today is just another piece of trivia that has little influence on the lives of the vast majority of those alive when the 49ers beat the Bengals.

Winning is a big thing. It always has been and always will be. Someone once said, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” But when it comes to so much of what people struggle to win, the truth is, it isn’t all that important in the long run.

Sunday we’re going to be talking about Jesus Christ’s victory over Satan. On first glance, that might not mean a whole lot to you. But give it a few moments to sink in. We’re always talking about the struggle between good and evil. Christ’s victory means the good wins. It means there is hope. It means that even death might not be the final word. The word “victory” fills our minds and media, but when it comes down to the victory which matters – there’s only one – the victory of Jesus Christ.

If you’re interested in what that victory means to you, join us this weekend for one of our worship services. You might find there’s a whole new way of looking at winning and losing.

Saturday evening worship: 6:00 pm
Sunday morning worship: 10:00 am
