May 25: See
Scripture Lesson: Isaiah 9:2-3
In 1979, on this date, the fog was so thick in Shea Stadium that
Pirates left fielder Bill Robinson lost Joel Youngblood’s ball in the outfield
mist, and the umpires stopped play. Due to the fog, the 11-inning contest ended
in a 3-3 tie after a 73-minute delay.
In a prophecy about the coming Messiah, Isaiah spoke of a great
light that would pierce the darkness of the world. Jesus late referred to
Himself, in John’s Gospel, as the “Light of the World.” Throughout the writings
of John, images of light and darkness are used. Jesus came to this world to
bring the light of God’s love that will take away the darkness sin had brought.
It is much easier to see in the light and much harder to see in the darkness
that sin brings around us. Jesus also calls us to be light reflecting Him to
the world around us. We are to be light bearers bringing His live to the world
ever been in total darkness? How did it feel?
Jesus been light in your life?
you be light in the lives of others?
Baseball is an impossible game to play when one can’t see. Getting
through the game of life without the light of Jesus’ love showing the way is
also impossible if we want to live a happy and productive life.
