Sports4Him Feature Athletes

 

Ben Zobrist, Outfielder
Tampa Bay Devil Rays

Central Illinois native Ben Zobrist, who signed a lucrative 3-year contract extension that will keep him in Tampa Bay through the end of the 2013 season, is an important component in manager Joe Madden's Ray machine.

After his career-defining 2009 season,  Ben proved that he was an elite professional as he was among the American League leaders in a number of statistical categories.  He finished the season with a .297 average with 27 home runs and 91 RBIs as the Rays finished in third place behind the Yankees and the Red Sox in the best division in MLB. Among his many accomplishments in '09, he made his first AL All-Star team.
 
In the seasons to follow, Ben has proven that he was in no way a one-year wonder. He has continued his solid production each and every year as the Rays contend for the AL East Division title.

Ben is a member of the
Liberty Bible Church in Eureka, IL and has a real passion to be a testimony for Christ both on and off the field.  Please join Sports4Him in praying for Ben as he plays for the ultimate glory of God!

He is God and He is Good - Psalm 100
by Dave Cunningham
 
Psalm 100 is one of the most comforting and encouraging chapters in the Bible.  In this short psalm of thanksgiving we find two great truths that the Christian should joyfully celebrate each and every day. The Psalmist writes:   
 
“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing.  Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the Sheep of His pasture.  Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise.  Give thanks to Him, bless His name.  For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.”
 
What are those two enriching truths? #1, He is God (verse 3) and #2, He is good (verse 5)! 
 
Anything less than that divine combination falls short.  As the people of God, we have great comfort, peace and hope because He is both God and good.
 
Think about it.  If God was something less than the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent God of the Bible—He would not have the ultimate power and authority to impose his goodness. He would be less than almighty God and then subject to external powers.
 
And then, if God was God but He wasn’t good—we would all be deservedly doomed for eternity to a Christ-less hell.
 
But the amazing thing is that He is both almighty God and He is inherently good.
 
HE IS GOD
 
“It is He who made us”, the Psalmist says, “not we ourselves.”  But amazingly, so many people live their lives as if they created themselves.  Oh, they may give some lip service about God but they ultimately do what they want, when they want and how they want. 
 
When I was a kid, I used to like to watch those mad scientist movies.  The scientist, who always had an evil agenda, would create a human being in the laboratory and then the person would be totally devoted to whatever the scientist told him to do. 
 
I have often thought that is the kind of devotion that the true Creator God is due—complete and utter devotion and obedience to Him. Why? Because He is God. He created us.
 
While I think we understand the intended illustration above, my analogy crumbles to pieces because the mad scientists in the movies were generally evil and up to no good.  But the reassuring message of Psalm 100 is that God is not only God but He is good.
