Softball Devotionals

The softball devotionals are an important aspect of the softball ministry.  Either before or after each game played, a 20-minute devotional is conducted by the Governor of the home team.  The purpose of this is to look into the Word of God.  As the season progresses, transcripts of the devotionals conducted by our team will be posted online.  This will allow anybody to review previous devotionals in the series that you may have missed or to revisit ones that you found interesting.  If you have any questions about the content of any of these devotionals, please feel free to ask any of the softball leadership (Coaches or Governors), CGYG or LIFE leadership, or email

Is Jesus just one of many legitimate paths to God and to Heaven?  Christianity claims that it is through Christ alone that we can be saved from the punishment of sin that we are all subject to.  Are Christians arrogant and too exclusive for believing this?  This devotional describes the logic behind this foundational Christian belief.
