"For by Grace are you saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.

'The Lord and Baseball'

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
'Love, Faith 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 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!"
