Most dads love baseball. What they don’t realize is that life is a lot like a baseball game. Hold up a cupcake. We are like baseballs. We want to be hit out of the park – meaning we want a successful life! But how do we do that? Balls don’t have any strength of their own. What needs to happen to them for them to end up outside the ball park? They need to be hit by a bat!
Just like balls need to be hit by a bat, we need to be struck by the Holy Spirit in our lives. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the light; no one comes to the Father but through me.” None of us are strong enough within ourselves to get into heaven. We need Jesus to come into our lives and bat us into the outfield.
Christian dads have been struck by God. They are on their way out of the ballpark. Other dads can be struck anytime. How do we get Jesus into our hearts? We only have to”¦ ask! In Matthew 7:7 Jesus says, “Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be opened.”
Let’s all pray for our dads on Father’s Day, that God will hit a home run with them, and that we’ll come following after.
