Matthew 28:18-20 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
In life you will never get the right calls you were looking to get. We are going to have to deal with it and work through it. We will have to accept them and move on. Keep your head up because the morale of the team is depending on you. If you get injured and hit, get back in the game and do your best. Sign up today and get on the winning team, the Christian family. Put your helmet on and, when it your time to bat, take every opportunity to knock someone in and make it count. Run as hard as you can and have fun. Enjoy life and make the best of it. Are you eager or slumped? Is it already in your mind you are going to strike out before you even get up to bat? Get up, get in, and get at it, swing batter swing! This time you might actually hit it, but you never know what you can do until you swing.
Step up to the plate and swing the bat – don’t step out and be afraid of the ball. The stands are full – Hebrew 12:1. Do not let the stands distract you. Let’s keep looking unto Jesus for his signs. When he gives the sign “Go”, (Matthew 28:19), give it all you got in you! Many doubt if the coach is calling the right call or not. Just trust he is doing all he can to get you to advance.
The sacrifice bunt – a play that advances the others so they can get home. Be a team player! Support others trying to do what is right. Suit up, get ready, stretch, and get into action. It is your turn to bat. Let’s hit it or at least make contact, but let’s do everything we can to get somebody home!
