May 28, 2012 - Quick- Hitter

This week I am going for a “quick hitter.” Those are plays where you try to score very quickly. These plays are set for situations when the clock is going to expire and the team needs a basket.

Have you ever noticed the urgency in players during these situations? It makes one wonder why the players don’t give the same effort and intensity every play of the game????

The reason I am going for the quick-hitter is two-fold. For one I am exhausted from having to all-nighter drives in the last three nights. Secondly I truly believe that time is of the essence in what we are called to do – the Great Commission.

On a day where we honor those that have sacrificed for our freedom; On a day where most of us reading this devotion are in a country where we are afforded the freedom to share our beliefs.; can I urge you to make some scarifices in your lives? Will you sacrifice your time? Will you sacrifice your reputation and be willing to be looked at like a Jesus freak? Will you make the sharing of the Gospel a priority while there is still time on the clock? You have the freedom to do that!

Saw the following great quote this past week that will serve as our quick-hitter:

"The gospel is only good news if it gets there in time" – Carl F. H. Henry
