"And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding." Jeremiah 3:15
 
Having owned a baseball card shop for the last 15 years, you certainly can say that I love sports. One of my favorite sports is baseball. It is a fairly unique game in that there is not a clock or a time limit on the game, as in other major sports. Each team has 27 outs to try and score the most runs possible to win the game.  To me, the game is about opportunities. You have 27 opportunities. Do you sacrifice one of you opportunities and bunt to help move a runner from first to second into scoring position leaving some work to do for the next person? Or do you swing away and try to get even more out of the opportunity and push them along even further? 

Everyday God gives us opportunities to move someone along, sometimes you need to swing for the fence, others times you just need a simple bunt to move them along. I hope to move you all along in your spiritual journey and encourage each of you to help others do the same. The challenge is keeping our eyes and our hearts open to the needs of others so we might make the most of every opportunity that comes along our way. Sometimes that requires a sacrifice on our part. It's the very thing God did for each of us when he sent us his Son Jesus to die on the cross for us and hit a home run for every single one of us. The game is already won for us. All he needs us to do is get in the game and make the most of every opportunity. 

Blessings to All 

Pastor Leon
