What do Mr. Tom Brady and Jesus Christ have in common? Well, they both have Best Selling Books and they both participated in fantastic comeback events. Let’s handle Mr. Brady first.
As I am sure you are all well aware of The 2017 Super Bowl comeback win for the New England Patriots verses the Atlanta Falcons. Mr. Tom Brady and The Patriots pulled off a Historic comeback to win in overtime 34-28. Mr. Tom Brady and The Patriots erased a 28 to 3 lead in the final 18 minutes of regulation and won in the First Super Bowl to ever require overtime!
Next there is Mr. Tom Brady’s book, for full discloser, I have not personally purchased or read this book, “The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak.” My comments concerning Mr. Brady’s book are solely based on reviews I heard from Boston Sports Radio. I am not making any recommendations good or bad on whether anyone should purchase Mr. Brady’s book. I do however believe that Mr. Tom Brady will go down in history as one of the best, if not the best, quarterback of all time!
According to what I heard on Boston Sports Radio from those who have taken the time to read the book all the way through, the book is a good read. But they also said to really achieve “a Lifetime of Sustained Peak” as Mr. Brady describes, one has to be very financially well off to follow the TB12 Method without making any deviations. The average middle income guy would have to make major adjustments on the TB12 Method. So in reality the goal of “Lifetime Sustained Peak” is not available to everyone due to the fact that some people simply cannot afford the TB12 Method and therefore are disqualified from that which Mr. Brady has achieved for himself.
Now let’s take a look at Jesus Christ’s Comeback! Jesus’ comeback just so happens to be written in the book that is about Him which is the Holy Bible! The Apostle Peter said of Jesus in Acts 10:38-39, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:” Jesus always did the will of His Father and that eventually meant that Jesus would give himself over to be crucified and die for the sins of mankind. But that my friend is not the end of the story. Peter went on to say in Acts 10:40, “Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;” That’s right! God Raised Him from the Dead!
he grave could not hold Him! Peter, later wrote in 1 Peter 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” We read also in Hebrews 10:12, “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;” All born-again believers benefit abundantly because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead! The Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the Greatest Comeback of All Time orchestrated by God Himself! The blessings from this one act are limitless and nobody is disqualified!
The method for achieving this New Life is found in Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
The way to achieving Eternal Salvation is by making Jesus Christ the Lord of your life! If you have not taken that step yet, may I encourage you to do so now, why wait any longer?
With Mr. Tom Brady’s method you may achieve a “Lifetime of Sustained Peak,” but only if you can afford it, which in the end, through no fault of Mr. Brady, some will be disqualified. What does that leave you? Mr. Tom Brady’s Super Bowl comeback victory has only a sporting entertainment value. It begins and ends as a game!
On the other hand, Jesus Christ’s comeback victory from the grave has had an impact on everyone who chooses to become a born-again believer, disqualifying no one and has everlasting value in this life and the next!
As we approach the Thanksgiving Season, let’s rejoice and be thankful for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ which causes us to have Victory through Jesus Christ! In 1 Corinthians 15:55-57, we read “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Day Holiday! Love to you and your Family!
