Making it to the big leagues in 1986 with the Phillies was a great day in my life. The highlight of my career though was pitching in the 1997 World Series with Cleveland. Its a thrill just to play the game of baseball, but all the achievements on the baseball diamond are temporary, lasting only a little while.
I remember in 1991 reaching a point in my life when I realized there has to be more to life, a greater purpose. That greater purpose is to know God, to understand He has a plan for my life, that He loved me and sent His Son Jesus Christ to die in my place.
And this is that testimony that evidence: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life (1John 5:11-12). I had rejected Gods love by not accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I went about life as if God didnt matter, without giving a thought about my eternal destiny. Sad to say, a lot of people are just like I was.
Entering into a relationship with Jesus Christ, accepting His payment for my sins rather than trusting in my own goodness has been the highlight of my life. I get to live it every day as I study Gods Word, striving to know Him more and serve Him better. And better yet, Ill get to enjoy Him and worship Him forever. I want you to experience the joy of
knowing and following Jesus Christ and the peace in knowing He paid the penalty for your sin. Its up to you to choose accept Him or reject Him Hes waiting for you to respond.
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
