Fwd: FW: THE LORD'S BALLGAME

 
 

  

 

 

 

 

 

THE LORD'S BASEBALL GAME

 

Freddy and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord's team was playing Satan's team.

The Lord's team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs. They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate named
'Love.'

Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because 'Love never fails.'

The next batter was named
Faith, who also got a single because Faith works

with Love.

The next batter up was named
Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw

the first pitch.


Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: Ball one. Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan throws.


The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Freddy and told him He was now
going to bring in His starplayer. Up to the plate stepped Grace.

Freddy said, 'He sure doesn't look like much!'

 

Satan's whole team relaxed when they saw Grace.
Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch.

To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen!

But Satan was not worried; his center fielder let very few get by.

 



He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him on the head and

sent him crashing on the ground; the roaring crowds went wild as the ball
continued over the fence . . for a home run!



The Lord's team w n!

The Lord then asked Freddy if he knew why Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom

could get on base but couldn't win the game. Freddy answered that

he didn't know why.

 

The Lord explained, 'If your love, faith and wisdom had won the game, you would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith and Wisdom will get you on base but only My Grace can get you Home:

 

'For by Grace are you saved, it is a gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.' Ephesians 2:8-9

Psalm 84:11,
'For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.'

Jesus' Test

This is an easy test; you score 100 or zero. It's your choice.

If you aren't ashamed to do this, please follow the directions.

Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'

Not ashamed!! Pass this on, if you mean it..
, I do Love God. He is my source of existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I am nothing, but with him:

'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.'
Phil 4:13
