Strike three! You’re out!
Thank God that’s not His ruling
No one would ever get on base
much less make it to home plate!
Jesus scored the winning run
through His death and resurrection
He took our strikes—He took our swings
He crushed opposition with His victorious sting
His blood, sweat, and tears
were drops of love on every base
His relentless dedication
was poised in strength and grace
Jesus had no hesitation
about the game He came to play
He made up for the errors of others
with a Grand Slam that saved the day!
The Heaviest Hitter that has ever scored
will be announced with a trumpet’s horn
The Greatest Comeback there ever will be
is the Return of Christ, the King of all Kings
But as we wait for that celebratory day
the enemy will still try to pitch balls our way
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for crushing each hit
and for covering every sin that we’ll ever commit!
Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.
1 Peter 3:18
