You Are Not Too Old

Last night, Jamie Moyer became the oldest man to win a Major League Baseball game. At the very young age of 49 years old, he pitched seven innings giving up six hits and 2 runs, for the Colorado Rockies to beat the San Diego Padres 5-3. I remember watching Moyer as a kid when he pitched for the Chicago Cubs from 1986 through 1989. Think of that. He has pitched in the majors for 26 years. And he is proving that he is not too old.

It made me think this morning, will there ever be a time in your life that you are too old to do something for Jesus? Initially, I want my answer to be "no", but I know that is not true. There is the chance that at some point in your life, you will be bed-ridden and be experiencing what Solomon describes in Ecclesiastes 12:1-8. But if you are reading this blog, you are not. You are not too old. 

You are not too old to serve at your church.
You are not too old to share the gospel with your friend.
You are not too old to sing in worship to your Savior.
You are not too old to go on a missions trip. 
You are not too old to read your Bible.
You are not too old to encourage someone in their faith.
You are not too old to serve in the nursery.
You are not too old to cook a meal for someone.
You are not too old to be generous with your money.

At some point, Moyer is going to be too old to pitch a Major League baseball game. At some point, you will be (or already have become) too old to run a six-minute mile. But you are not too old to live the Christian life.

  1. Question: What Are You Too Old To Do In Your Christian Life? Answer - if God wants you to do it - nothing. His same grace that was sufficient for Paul should be sufficient for us also.
