The Bowl Champion Series (BCS) was established in 1998 and has used a complicated computer program to assign points to determine the rank of teams with the top teams at the end of the season playing for the championship. Despite the attempt to make this process completely objective, there are those who will never be satisfied until the NCAA establishes some sort of playoff system so that the top teams will actually play each other to determine the ultimate champion.
Deciding on what is number one in our lives is not in the hands of a computer program. It's demonstrated by our thoughts and actions and the ranking can change from moment to moment. I'm in constant need to assessing my attitudes and actions: where am I placing my priorities? Where am I finding security? Who is getting my highest attention and loyalty?
Join us this Sunday, October 6th, as we take a look at an encounter between Jesus and Peter and some key questions we should use for ranking our own priorities. You can get a head start by reading John 21. We will be celebrating the Lord's Supper this week. I hope to see you.
