The Resting Place

 


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 star player. 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 won!

The Lord then asked Freddy if he knew why 
LoveFaith 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 
lovefaith and wisdom had won the game, you would think you had done it by yourself. LoveFaith 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.
