New Devotional Series:

   

APRIL 4TH- JULY 10TH

In 2004 the American League Championship Series was between longtime rivals the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees were favored and won the first three games. The Yankees scored 19 runs in the third game alone. It appeared that the Red Sox were dead in the water. They had not won a World Series since 1918. It looked like their drought would continue.

 

The odds were certainly against the Red Sox because no team had come back from a 3-0 deficit in a seven-game series. Could the Red Sox be the first? It sure didn’t look like it. They were down 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth inning of game 4 with famed closer Mariano Rivera on the mound for the Yankees. For all practical purposes, the Yankees could book their hotel rooms for the World Series.

 

On paper, this game and this series were over. But then something amazing happened. The Red Sox came back to tie the game and then to win it on a two-run homer by David Ortiz,“Big Papi”, in the bottom of the twelfth inning. They were still alive. After that they never looked back. They won the remaining three games with the Yankees, winning the series four games to three. They then won four straight games in the World Series against the St Louis Cardinals to become World Series Champs for the first time in 86 years. What a story, what a Comeback!!!.

 

Everyone likes a good comeback story. This one is one of the greatest in baseball history. It reminds us to never give up and to fight against all odds. As followers of Christ, we know being down doesn’t mean being out. We can experience a resurgence, a comeback with the help of God.

 

Right now, I think we would all agree that humanly speaking things have been extremely tough for over a year. The pandemic has devastated our nation and our city. It has changed the church in ways we could never imagine. It has also wreaked havoc with many of our lives. It has left some discouraged, some despairing, some defeated, some depressed and some even doubting. What we need right now is a Comeback. The people of God need it individually, the church needs it corporately and our City and Nation need it desperately.

 

The Greatest Comeback of all time was when Jesus Christ came back from the grave on that first Resurrection Sunday. His resurrection is the message, motive and model for all real comebacks. Starting Easter Sunday, when we celebrate Jesus’ comeback, and continuing through July 4th , we at Calvary are going to be looking at the many great comebacks in the Scriptures.

 

We have also designed a devotional to viewed here on our app (text CCSI APP to 77977). It is also available on our website (calvarychapelsi.org) and at NYCShepherd.com. I am challenging myself and you to be a part of this special study. By God’s grace we will all be a part of His amazing story, “The Comeback”.

Blessings

Pastor Dave Watson
