These were my famous last words right before halftime during the recent Super Bowl. I’m a Denver Broncos fan and we were thoroughly and repeatedly thrashed during this game. Six days later, I’m still looking for some kind of silver lining from this game, but I’ve yet to find any redeeming value, other than being humbled (possibly humiliated depending on your point of view).
I’ve also been reading about Jesus’ arrest, scourging, crucifixion and death over the last few days. Maybe His disciples said the same thing, “it can’t get any worse”, when Jesus was betrayed by Judas in Gethsemane. Perhaps they thought the worst was over when Jesus was brought before Pilate. And when Jesus died on the cross, maybe they gave up all hope and felt entirely abandoned, betrayed, demoralized and forsaken. If you’re in a very bleak situation, remember that Jesus defied all natural convetions and rose from the dead. With God, nothing is impossible, including the Broncos ,)
