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. It’s 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 God’s love by not accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I went about life as if God didn’t 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 God’s Word, striving to know Him more and serve Him better. And better yet, I’ll 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. It’s up to you to choose – accept Him or reject Him – He’s 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)
