[MOL] Fwd: God's Baseball Team

Subject: God's baseball team


 Bob and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game.
 The Lord's team was playing Satan's team. The Lord's team was at
 bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the
 9th inning with two outs.

 They continued to watch as a batter, whose name was Love, stepped 
 up to the plate.  Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because
 Love never fails.

 The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because
 Faith works with Love.

 The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and
threw the first pitch. Godly Wisdom looked it over
 and let it pass: Ball one. Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom
walked, because Godly Wisdom never swings at what Satan throws.
 The bases were loaded.

 The Lord then turned to Bob and told him He was now going to bring in
His star player. Up to the plate stepped Grace.
 Bob said, "He sure doesn't look like much!" Satan's whole team
 relaxed when they saw Grace.

 Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first
 pitch. To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than
 anyone had ever seen. But Satan was not worried; his center fielder
 let very few get by. He went up for the ball, but it went right through his 
 glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing on the ground; then it
continued over the fence for a home run!

 The Lord's team won. The Lord then asked Bob if he knew why
 Love, Faith, and Godly Wisdom could get on base but could not win the
 game. Bob answered that he did not know why.

 The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom had won the
 game, you would think you had done it by yourself. Love, faith and
 wisdom will get you on base, but only My Grace can get you home.
 My Grace is the one thing Satan cannot steal."
