Yogi Berra was a catcher for the New York Yankees.  He won 10 World Series and was an 18-time all-star. 

 

But he is probably better known for his “Yogi-isms.”  His quotes often mangled the English language in light-hearted ways, but also had a grain of truth in them.  Here’s a sampling of five of his finest.

 

  1. Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.
  2. Pair up in threes.
  3. A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.
  4. Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.
  5. You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.

 

He was so well known for his sayings that sometimes he was given credit for things he didn’t even say.  Thus another Yogi-ism: “I never said most of the things I said.”

 

Here’s one more he said, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”  The “Yogi-ness” of that quote is that it is redundant.  Déjà vu literally means “already seen.”  It’s a feeling that you get that you’ve been in place before.  You’ve heard this conversation before.  So to say, “Déjà vu all over again” is to say the same thing twice.  Classic!

 

This morning “it’s déjà vu all over again.”  We’re going to wrap up the “Final Word” by opening our Bibles to the 21st chapter of John’s gospel.  In this story the disciples are going to encounter the risen Lord Jesus and hear his final words.  They are words they’ve heard before but that bear repeating.  In fact, we too need to hear them again.

 

It’s déjà vu all over again.

 

The Final Word

“Déjà Vu All Over Again”

John 21:1-22

 

  1. Called to fish
    1. Apply the instructions Jesus gives
    2. Appreciate the increase Jesus gives
  2. Called to feed
    1. Love the shepherd
    2. Love the sheep
  3. Called to follow
    1. Follow regardless of the cost
    2. Follow regardless of the comparison
