“May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God.” (Psalm 20:5)
Last Saturday our national rugby team, the Springboks, made it to the finals in the rugby world cup 2019. The following day, I was sent a whats app video of the Ndlovo choir and others celebrating. https://youtu.be/bluI1i4ckTc
There was dancing and confetti and South African flags. Tomorrow we will be playing in the finals. In the unlikely event that we win, you can bet there will be Springbok flags waving, jumping, hugging and riotous celebration.
On the cross Jesus won the victory over death and sin. The kingdom of heaven is like a victory celebration after your team wins the rugby (or any other) world cup!
