As soon as this Word from God was spoken, the grumbling and disputing ceased. The team that was calling the runner out started giving the runner the benefit of the doubt and saying things like, “It was such a close call, he was probably safe! Let them stay on base.” The team that was calling him safe was then saying, “No, you’re right, he was probably out.”
This, friends, is the power of the Word of God! And the reason why it is necessary for us to hide it in our hearts by memorizing it. The Word of God brought reconciliation to these believers and helped them continue to enjoy this friendly game of softball and more importantly, glorify Christ together through it.
If you haven’t memorized a verse in a while, how about starting with this one? It’s very easy and very powerful.
