Andy Pettitte is one of baseball's finest players, and he is still completely focused on spreading the word and power of Christ.
Pitching in the World Series was a thrilling experience, but the most exciting event in my life was when I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.
That happened in 1983 when I was 11 years old. Each of us make many decisions every day, but there is no decision more important than where we are going to spend eternity. God provided a way for us to live forever with Him in heaven when He sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross. Since none of us is perfect, we all sin and fall short of perfection in God's sight, we need a Savior. Accepting Christ's payment and trusting only in His death as the means to bridge the gap between you and God is the most important thing you'll ever do. It's an awesome thing to recognize that God loves you and paid the price for your sins. But you can't just accept His free gift of salvation. The peace and fulfillment He gives is greater than anything in life. Greater than any ball game, even the World Series. Trust Christ today for your salvation, it's the only way to heaven.
