Who Dat?!!



Super Bowl celebration in New Orleans

 Never mind the rain, c’est une belle journée in New Orleans for a Super Bowl Parade!  (that’s Cajun for, “It’s a beautiful day!”, I googled 🙂 )  


And what will ring in everyone’s ear as they fill the streets of New Orleans: “Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?!”

And why will the cajuns be shoutin’ this? The Saints’ quarterback, Drew Brees, and his wife try to explain it to Katie Couric: 


You know,  our heavenly père (that’s cajun for father, don’tcha know) calls us saints. ( Click HERE for a list of verses that shows that.)  

And we saints have a team of enemy tacklers that surround us every day.  Although they don’t wear  jerseys and shoulder pads and we can’t see them as easily as the Saints could see the Colts at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, they’re just as menacing and always hovering about trying to “beat dem saints”:  

 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”  Ephesians 6:12  

And we would be too faible (cajun for weak) and soon be estropié (crippled) if we tried to face them without our uniforms: 

“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Eph. 6:13-17) 
And when we’re armoured up and following our coach, who can defeat us?!  Shout it with me: “Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?!  Nobody!!!”
 Now, pray it with me!

(We’ll be praying Bible verses, so click on highlighted sentences, if you like, to see which ones we’re praying.  If one stands out to you, you can write it down to “hide it in your heart” )   

Oh, Father in heaven, thanks be to you who gives me the victory in Christ..  If you are for me,   who can be against me? 

 Who shall separate me from your love?  ‘Shall  trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things I are more than a conqueror through him who loved me. 

“So, Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dis saint?!  NO BODY!!!  Thank you, Jesus!  Amen!”
