Spring Training for baseball has begun! The great baseball manager Leo Durocher was once asked who was the all-time favorite player he had coached.
Lots of people were shocked when he named Dusty Rhodes. Rhodes was a little known pinch hitter, not a really big name player. Durocher was asked, “What was so special about Dusty Rhodes?” He replied, “In a tight game when I looked down the bench for a pinch hitter, some players would avert their gaze and refuse to look in my direction.
“But Dusty Rhodes would look me right in the eye, smile, and tap on his bat.” He was always available. New birth is more likely to happen this Lent to persons who make themselves available to God.

Do YOU make yourself available to God on a regular basis this Lent?
An attractive young woman, whose career caused her to travel quite a bit, was asked if she was ever bothered by uninvited male attention.
She answered, “Never. If I begin to feel pressured, I simply say five words and then I’m left alone.” Of course she was asked, “What are the five words?”
She smiled sweetly and said, “I simply ask, ‘Have you been born again?'”
Thanks to Caroline Satre. Thanks to Jose Francisco Morales for the picture.
How have YOU been born again in YOUR love for Jesus this Lent?
GOD GAVE YOU LIFE BECAUSE GOD KNEW YOU WERE STRONG ENOUGH TO LIVE YOUR LIFE!!
