This past Sunday we did something unusual at WBC. We had an Astros' Support Sunday. The people were encouraged to wear their Astros' gear for Bible study and worship and to stay for a potluck and an open gym to follow. We even heard a baseball-themed sermon from our assoicate pastor to students, Derrick Wade. He challenged the people to get onto the Lord's team rather than being a spectator. He also challenged us to move from being a bench warmer to being a home-run hitter for the Lord. He spoke about the discipline that is needed and the need for practicing and putting in the effort and winning people for Christ. As he concluded his sermon, we were asked: Which one are you?
It's a question all of us need to prayerfully consider. How about you? Are you a spectator needing to get onto the Lord's team? Are you a bench warmer needing to put in the effort to get off the bench? Or are you a home-run hitter for the Lord working hard to impact lives for Christ? Even though I am still sore from the open gym time, it was a wonderful Sunday.
Blessings to you,
