Nolan Ryan struck out 5714 batters in his years on the mound. That is good but it is not the best record ever. I don’t think he could get Paul.
St Paul played baseball and he did it well. He played it so well that he was never struck out. That’s right! Never!
We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:9, AMP)
Other versions say he was battered so don’t tell me that Paul never played baseball!
We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized. (2 Corinthians 4:9, MSG)
Baseball might not be your sport, but it Paul is any indicator; I think we would be good at it!
Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. (2 Corinthians 4:1, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, may we be like Paul, hitting home runs for Jesus! Amen.
