Jesus experienced a Super Bowl crowd in Luke 8:42, "the crowds were nearly crushing Him." Then, He stopped in the middle of the crowd and wanted to know who touched him. Jesus said, "I know that power has gone out from Me." Jesus knew that someone used the crowd to receive a healing. A lady who had been bleeding for 12 years was healed.
This lady used the crowd. How are you going to use the excitement and crowd of the Super Bowl to show people their real need?
1). Say, "I'm passionate about football, but I'm more passionate about Christ." Use football as a bridge to share your testimony. Football fans are crazy for the game - Christians should be crazy for their Lord. He saved, healed & forgave you - that's the best message worth sharing.
2). Tell people you love the Super Bowl, but don't care for the commercials. Then wait for the person to say, "Why?" Then say, "Ephesians 4:24 says to 'put on the new self' which includes purity. Super Bowl commercials aren't pure." Don't respond like a Pharisee - rather someone who's striving to live a life pleasing to God.
3). Ask someone, "What's the greatest event in your life?" Listen to their response and they'll likely ask you, "Why do you ask?" or "What's yours?" Use the opportunity to state, "For the 49ers & Ravens this is theirs, but for me, it was when I trusted Christ as my Savior." Bridge the biggest game of a team's franchise to the greatest day when Christ saved you.
This is a huge weekend - Christians need to be looking for opportunities to share their faith in Christ with people centered on the Super Bowl.
