Christ is our umpire. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. (Colossians 3:15, NASB)
The rules aren’t three strikes you are out.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me; up to seven times?”
Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. (Matthew 18:21-22, NIV)
Team Huddles are encouraged.He encourages team huddles. Where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”(Matthew 18:20, NIV)
God loves to win. He keeps playing till he wins souls.
Truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. (Matthew 18:13-14, NIV)
And folks, never argue with the umpire.
And let the peace from Christ rule, act as umpire continually in your hearts. Let him decide and settle all questions that arise in your minds.And be thankful, giving praise to God always. (From Colossians 3:15)
Prayer- Lord, Lets play ball! Amen.
