God's Grace

Bob was having a dream one night...he was dreaming that he was standing beside God watching a baseball game. The Lord's team was playing against Satan's evil team. The Lord's team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs. They continued to watch as the first batter stepped up to the plate. His name was Love. Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because Love never fails. The next batter was named Faith, who also hit a single, because Faith always works best with Love. The next batter up was called Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first pitch; Godly Wisdom just looked it over and left it pass, because Godly Wisdom knows better to swing at Satan's pitches. Ball one. Three pitches later Godly Wisdom walks to first, because Godly Wisdom never swings at Satan's pitches. The bases are loaded! The Lord looked over and told Bob that He was going to put in His Star Player. Up to the plate stepped Grace. Bob said he sure din't look like much! And Satan's whole team just sort of relaxed when they saw Grace. Thinking he had the game won, Satan wound up and threw the first pitch. To the surprise of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder and farther than anyone had seen. But Satan was not worried, he had the Prince of the Air in center field, and the Prince hardly ever let any get by. Up in the air went the Prince but the ball went right through his glove, hit him in the head and sent him crashing to the ground; the ball went over the fence for a home run! The Lord's team won! The Lord then asked Bob if he knew why Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom could only get on base but could not win the game? Bob said the he did not know. The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom were enough to win the game for you on earth, you would have thought that you had done it by yourself. Love, faith and wisdom will get you on base, but only my Grace can bring you home. My Grace is the one thing Satan cannot stop." Bob woke up the next morning and had a different point of view on the A.A. slogan:
