Get in the Game

Get in the game!

Living in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex afforded us the opportunity to go to Ranger’s games. I am not much for baseball but occasionally would tag along.
The Rangers were playing the Cleveland Indians. Cleveland started off with three single base hits. Then it happened! A GRAND SLAM—bases loaded and a home run. They were ahead 4-0! Inning after inning the scoreboard read 4-0.
The bored crowd started trying to find things to do. They chatted, and downed hotdogs and cokes. Some went home believing the game was dead.
Then came THE WAVE! Section after section rose to their feet and waved! As soon as “the wave” went through the crowd, it was repeated from the other side! Over and over it went! Cheering erupted. The scoreboard changed—6-5! The Rangers got excited! Fans got excited.
It was the bottom of the ninth, the Rangers were at bat. There was a runner on base and then, a homerun! We won the game! Ranger fans cheered. Those who left early missed the finale!
CHURCH!!! We are in the bottom of the ninth! We have people on base and we need to bring them home! We are chatting, eating, and spending time on nothingness. We need to start “the wave!” We need to gather momentum! Some have given up and gone home believing the church is dead. We need to step up to the plate and get into the game! We need a revival in the pulpit and the pew! We need to be doers of the Word!
Hebrews 12:1 tells us about a “cloud of witnesses.” They are not spectators; but inspiring examples, runners of the race, mentioned in chapter 11.
Don’t “drop the ball.” Run, with your “eyes fixed on Jesus.”
Rev. Judi Wiegman
