Week 37 Bible Reading: Ephesians 3:14–21

Waiting To Cheer

Christ’s love is greater than any person can ever know. But I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:19 ICB

In his first Little League baseball game, a player got hit in the face with a ball. He wasn’t hurt but was understandably shaken. For the rest of the season, he was afraid of the ball. Game after game, he bravely kept batting, but he just couldn’t hit the ball.

In his team’s final game, his team was way behind when he stepped up to the plate for the last time in the season. Thwack! To everyone’s surprise, he hit the ball sharply! Everyone—teammates and parents alike—cheered loudly. The coach was jumping up and down! Everyone loved this kid and cheered him on.

I imagine that the Lord cheers us on in our lives as well. He loves us deeply and desires that we may know “Christ’s love,” which “is greater than any person can ever know” (Ephesians 3:19 ICB).

By the way we live, we can show others about Jesus’s deep love for us—and them. Think about how cool it will be when they hear that God loves them so much that He sent Jesus to die on the cross for their sin. And that He wants to cheer them on!

Fun Fact

One major league player who played Little League baseball is Cody Bellinger. He played in the Little League World Series in 2007 and hit a home run. In 2017, he hit a home run in the MLB World Series for the LA Dodgers.

Just You and God

I know you have put people in my life who are cheering me on. Help me to remember to say thanks to them.
