February 26: A Great Save

 

Scripture Lesson: Acts 16:16-34

 

Today is the birthday of J.T. Snow. Known primarily as a great fielding first baseman, Snow made one of the games’ great saves in the 2002 World Series. As Snow was scoring after a single by Kenny Loftin in game five, he grabbed three-year-old bat boy Darren Baker by the back of the jacket and carried him out of harm’s way. The young bat boy and son of Giants manager Dusty Baker had run to home plate to collect Loftin’s bat before the play was over. This touching moment could have been ended much differently. After this incident, Commissioner Bud Selig required all bat boys to be at least 14 years of age.

 

Our Scripture lesson today is about another save that did not take place on the pitching mound. Paul and Silas were imprisoned falsely in Philippi. In the center of the prison reserved for the worst criminals, feet in stocks, Paul and Silas were singing praises to God. An earthquake came and opened all the cell doors. The jailer, seeing the doors opened, was ready to kill himself, but Paul saved him by saying the prisoners were all there. That is the first save, the second save of the evening was when Paul and Silas witnessed to the jailer and his family and they all gave their lives to Jesus, believing on Him. I would say that is one great doubleheader save!

  1. Is there someone today in your life who needs to hear about the saving power of Jesus Christ?

  2. When is the last time we shared our faith?

  3. Would you be willing to pray that God would help you this day be a witness for Him?

Isn’t it great we serve the God of the save?
