How The New Fall TV Season Reminds Me Of The Gospel

The new TV season is upon us.  It began this week in earnest and will stretch out over the next few weeks.

I’m a bit of a TV geek.  I always have been and I might always be.  I get excited each year when the new TV shows premier.  When I was a kid the networks would even have a preview special that would highlight the new shows.  I still have fond memories of those.

I’ve watched a handful of shows this week and it dawned on me that this week reminds me of something:

The Gospel.

Hang in there with me for a minute.  I’ll explain.


Each year hundreds of TV shows are presented to the network executives during what is known as pilot season.  They are looking for new shows to replace those that were cancelled.  A handful will be selected for the fall.  Even fewer will make it through an entire season.  Even more will be cancelled by the end of the TV season and the process will begin again.

Each TV season is basically the same.  It begins in the fall and renews itself each year.

It reminds of  2 Corinthians 5:17:  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away;  behold, the new has come.

The new TV season is a new creation.  The old one is gone. The new one has begun.

We can see pictures of the Gospel just about anywhere.  It’s incredible to me that even in something that often flaunts ungodly lifestyles, that we can see the glory of the Lord.

Are you excited about the new TV season?  What show do you look forward to the most?  Have you ever seen the Gospel in an unexpected place?

    I think I’ve seen the Gospel in some very unexpected places. For a short while I used to work in a casino and they even had their own pastor leading a church inside of the casino. Very interesting. I had to attend once on my day off after hearing the gospel preached during a break at work.

    Oh, and I am excited for the new DC Flash series…which I heard a while back will be on, but haven’t heard anything new recently. Anything tied into Superman is my homing beacon.

    We are big NCIS fans. This could be the last season so we will savor each episode.

    One of the series I like is The Biggest Loser. I’m sure much of it is staged, but there is something redemptive in the hope and transformation of the “contestants.”

    I don’t watch much TV but I do make time for NCIS. Here’s to hoping skacyoung is wrong. 🙂

      I hope I am wrong, too.
