It’s October, and World Series time again. It was July 2009 when Pitcher Mark Buehrle, now a Toronto Blue Jay, was playing for the Chicago White Sox. It was the 9th inning, in a game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Buehrle was closing in on a no-hitter, when Gabe Kapler hit what looked like a home run. But then, White Sox Fielder Dewayne Wise made a spectacular leaping catch at the wall to rob Kapler of a home run. Buerhle then closed out the 18th perfect game in major league history. It was a magic performance. But there was another much greater moment in history, with not just a no-hitter in danger. It was when the destiny of all fallen mankind was at stake. Out of eternity came the Great One. Jesus left heaven and went to the cross to die for the sins of the world. He cried out dramatically, “It is finished,” having done everything necessary to save us from eternal damnation. And anyone, willing to repent and receive Christ can be forgiven, cleansed and receive the gift of eternal life. Just ask for it.
