June 6: Saves

 

Scripture Lesson: John 3:17

 

On this date in 2007, San Diego Padre closer Trevor Hoffman became the first reliever in Major League history to record his 500th save. It took Hoffman 10 pitches in the 9th inning to earn the save, including an 86 mile-per-hour fastball he threw by Dodger catcher Russell Martin to seal the 5-3 victory over the Dodgers.

 

John 3:16 is probably the most familiar verse in the entire Bible, but I think John 3:17 is just as powerful. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. The greatest of all saves did not occur on the baseball field. It occurred on the cross when Jesus died for our sins and saved all of us from the eternal punishment we all deserved. Jesus saved humanity by paying the price for our sins, and that was His only purpose in coming to this world!

  1. What motivated God to send Jesus to this world?

  2. What does it meant to you that Jesus paid the price for your sin?

  3. How can we show the Father and His Son our appreciation for what they did for us?

God has done so much for us, what more can we do for Him today?

The bible leaves no, no, room for us to imngiae how jesus looked wool hair, burnt bronze skin. The white blond hair blue eyes false image of ceasar boshure, was necessary to justify slavery and the false babolyanian religion and practices. Jesus will return soonl. Get over your superiority complex, althou unconscious. You love the real Jesus?, are you married to a black man or woman? In america these black people are the blood line descendants of Jesus, tribe of Juda
