Wake Forest baseball coach Tom Walter recently donated a kidney to one of his baseball players, Kevin Jordan. Jordan suffers from a disease that can lead to kidney failure.
Jordan’s father, Keith, said, “For us, it’s almost like it’s been divine intervention.”
It really was divine intervention when Jesus donated his body on the cross. You see, we all suffer from a disease called sin. This disease, if left unchecked, always leads to spiritual death. When Jesus sacrificed his life for ours, it gave us the opportunity to accept his gift and have spiritual healing.
After his coach made this great sacrifice so that he could have a normal, healthy life, Kevin said, “I’ll do whatever Coach asks me to do. If he wants me to get a bunt down, whatever, I can’t see myself saying “No” to anything.”
May we be that devoted to Jesus!
“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”—2 Cor.9:15
