Triple plays are rare jewels to witness. One night, a guy playing shortstop called out to his girlfriend playing second before the pitch and said, “Hey babe let’s turn a triple play.”
Boom! The ball was hit in a line drive right to him. He quickly pitched to his girlfriend on second, who then threw to first. In one miraculous moment the play was complete, the opposing side retired. One, two, three out! This couple took care of business, and the inning was over. Just like that guy called the play beforehand, the bible foretold that Christ would perform the ultimate triple play on the cross He perfectly fulfilled the law, He absorbed our punishment, and He opened eternity in heaven for all who would receive him. Mission accomplished. Death done!
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” (1 Cor 15:5).
Have you received Christ’s gift of eternal life?
