Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant...



On Saturday October 3rd, a delegation of FCA Baseball & Softball Coaches, players, parents and siblings in partnership with a group from Diamond Starz Academy in Douglasville spent the day showing the love of Christ to the many who are suffering in the wake of the recent floods in metro Atlanta. In addition to many hours of physical labor clearing out the interiors of homes that were devastated, we were able to provide several truckloads of supplies (clothing, toiletries, food, water, etc.), much prayer and hope. We were all truly blessed as we had the opportunity to bless others.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life--a ransom for many. Mark 10:45

Ecellent. I agree 100%. God uses all of us to minister throughout the community. As a diehard baseball fan, I can think of no better way to share Jesus Christ with the community. In my book Boys On The Gold Coast, a retire janitor the kids call "Pop", does that very thing to help a group of boys develop a baseball team and let the community see Christ's in action. Pop has nothing to gain for himself, other than to glorify God. Visit my blog at cornerlotsbaseball.
