Life is a lot like baseball. In order to play you just need to understand a few rules, get down the fundamentals, and then practice. How much you practice has a big bearing on how you get along. A coach in Texas used to make his players follow the “Rule of 100”. Every player had throw 100, catch 100, hit 100 balls EVERY day. Sounds like work. But he produced some great baseball players and some great teams. Went to the State play-offs a lot of times.
Life in Jesus is like that. To be a follower of Jesus you just need to learn the rules, get down the fundamentals and then practice. What are the fundamentals? Talk to God, listen to God; trust God and obey Him. EVERY day. Pretty simple, but not easy. Takes practice. The more you do it, the easier it gets. The reward is that you develop a personal relationship with the Creator of the Universe and He comes to live in your own private heart. Life just can’t get any better than that.
Like I said. It’s like baseball. When you get on a losing streak, what do all good coaches recommend? Get back to the fundamentals. When you stick with the fundamentals, it’ll turn your game and your life around.
