What is the greatest comeback of all time? Is it Muhammad Ali? Could it be the Philly Flyers who came back from the Bruins in 2010?
In 2001, Sports Illustrated released an article on the top 10 greatest comebacks of all time.
They’ve got Elvis, Muhammad Ali and even Michael Jordan up there. But do you see who made it to the number one spot? You’re seeing right. It’s my main man Jesus right there. A non christian magazine named Jesus to have the greatest comeback of all time. That’s what we’re looking at here.
It’s never too late for a comeback. Well, actually I take that back. I mean if you are like 90 years old and you’re trying to make it back to Olympics or something that’s kind of a different story. But let’s just stick with the idea that it’s never too late for a comeback.
There are so many examples of comebacks not only in the world we live in but also in the bible. Look at Mary Magdalene and the other Mary. After they saw and witnessed Jesus die they were in a GREAT amount of despair. Imagine: A man who says he is the Messiah they’ve been looking for, this man becomes everything you look up to and then you watch him die a brutal death right in front of your eyes for nothing he has done. If that were me, that would definitely be a reason to lose hope. Imagine with me again: the next day you go back to mourn and weep some more at his tomb only to encounter an Angel who tells you He is alive….hello doubt. That’s unreal. 1. Where in the world did this angel come from and 2. We watched him die and get put into that tomb. When they were told to look in the tomb, they did not see Him! The angel then told them to go and look for Him. Matthew 28:8 says “So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy and ran to tell his disciples.” Have you ever been in a situation where you felt SO EXCITED because you saw someone or something happened in your life that you don’t believe it’s real? Kind of like that “No Way! This cannot be happening, it’s too good to be true” type thought. Well, I guarantee you that is what the two women were thinking on their way to tell the disciples.
Though this example of the two Marys isn’t your typical comeback story – they came back from despair and were again filled with joy. And their comeback happened because of Jesus’ comeback. So who knows how your comeback can affect other people in a positive way. Don’t ever have so much doubt that you lose hope because if you lose hope, you lose everything. The Marys lost hope. But Jesus. We can come back from anything because of the comeback our Lord Jesus had from the grave. People ask me what my inspiration is of why I’m not giving up or still have hope…it’s because of my Jesus. He made a HUGE comeback, so there is no reason that I cannot make one hell of a comeback too.
