The Lord's Baseball

Bob was caught up in the spirit where he 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 whose name
was 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, because
Godly Wisdom does not swing at Satan's pitches. Ball one. Three more
pitches and Godly Wisdom walked, because Godly wisdom never swings at
Satan's throws.

The bases were loaded.

The Lord then turned to Bob and told him He was now going to bring
in His star player. Up to the plate stepped Grace. Bob said he sure
did not 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, the Prince of the
air, 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; then it continued over the fence for a home run! The Lord's
team won.

The Lord then asked Bob if he knew why Love, Faith, and Godly
Wisdom could get on base but could not win the game. Bob answered that he
did not 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.
My grace is the one thing Satan cannot stop."
