LAST week I celebrated my 80th birthday and among the many cards was one entitled “Football, what commentators say and what they really mean”. Inside there were eleven sayings and their real meanings.
Here are four of them.
A loyal club player. Nobody else will have him.
He’s like a jigsaw. He falls to pieces in the box.
This historic ground. This old, run-down dump.
That can be best described as an interesting match. Never seen anything so boring in my life.
How often in life do we know that someone is saying something to us and yet all along we know that they are meaning the opposite?
In fact, how often have we been guilty of the same fault?
When Jesus Christ was here on earth, we read that He said many things to many people, and He always meant what He said.
He always spoke the truth and He spoke to people to bless them, heal them and encourage them to follow Him and put their trust in Him and His Father, God.
As we read the Bible, we can be assured that the words are there to encourage us and bring us to a knowledge of Jesus as Lord and Saviour of our lives and they mean what they say, because it is truly God’s word.
