Baseball & softball are statistical games with ERA, batting averages, and on-base percentages. We can look at any team’s performance in any given season or any player’s performance in a specific game. Baseball is a good metaphor for life, because we know the Lord keeps all of our stats. Every thought, word, and deed is stored in His memory. Our tendency is to hide old stat sheets, not reveal them.
The essence of the Christian message is this: our stat sheets can be replaced with the perfect performance of the Lord Jesus Christ when we come to Him in repen- tance and faith. By seeking restoration and renewal through His spotless record we are wiped completely clean!
“If you O Lord kept a record of sins, who could stand. But with you there is forgiveness, therefore you are feared.” Ps 130:3
