The Word: Tired of the Rush

“I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on what you have until I come.”Revelation 2:24-25

We can become tired of rushing after gifts and ministries and programs and goals. In the process we can lose the gentleness and serenity of Jesus’ ministry. Zeal without wisdom can be harmful and immature, which does not lead anyone to God’s “green pastures” and “quiet waters.”

A congregation that is tired of rushing after new fads has a need for the Shepard if of Christ. Jesus says, “I will ask nothing more of you except that you hold tightly to me.”

Just like batting in baseball, there are many terms used to describe different aspects of pitching as well. Again, these can be used when discussing certain actions, plays or statistics you may encounter as a pitcher. Bender: A curveball.
Chin music: A pitch that is thrown high and inside on a batter in attempt to back them up off the plate. Gas: Another term for a fastball. “This pitcher is throwing gas.” On the bump: This phrase is used when talking about a pitcher on the pitcher’s mound. “On the bump tonight is [insert pitcher’s name here].” Uncle Charlie: A term sometimes used for a curveball.
