Albert Pujols

With the 2011 World Series in progress, Justin Taylor offers some insights on the faith of baseball great Albert Pujols. Pujols boldly expresses the importance of his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ at his web site: A Message of Faith from Albert Pujols:

Why is “Faith” the first word in our mission statement: “Faith, Family and Others?” The answer simply is because our faith in Jesus Christ is the central point of our individual lives, our marriage, family and Foundation. Take Jesus Christ and faith in Him out of the equation and all those other things would not exist.

It is a joy to see a man of great talent who recognizes where the talent came from and what a great gift and stewardship it is. May the Lord bless the Pujols family and honor their commitment to Him.

    Great post; it is great to see any man, woman, or child for that matter, who has put their faith in Jesus Christ and who serves Him faithfully; and since our world today is so focused on sports, I am also thankful that there are athletes who are in the public eye that are not ashamed of the gospel and who desire to proclaim it’s truth for all to see and hear. This may in part be why the topic of religious faith is being discussed on a greater scale in the media, who seemed at one time to avoid such discussions. 

    Even the presidential race is bringing out much discussion regarding religious faith. Though some still skirt around the truth, (for fear of political suicide I assume) much is being discussed about religious beliefs, cults, and the afterlife. I’m hopeful that some folks are searching the scriptures for answers and will turn to Christ.

    Sports, politics, and calamity seem get much attention; thankfully God is in control of it all.

    Isaiah 45:7 
    I form light and create darkness, I make well-being and create calamity, I am the LORD, who does all these things.

    Lamentations 3:37-40
    Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it? Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and bad come? Why should a living man complain, a man, about the punishment of his sins? Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the LORD!
