Who’s on First, What’s on Second and I Don’t know is on Third.

In News by Steve Roe

Jh 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, so the same

bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

This is a line from a very famous skit done by the comedians Abbott & Costello. It was a

reference to a baseball team and the names and positions of the players. Today I feel like

there are people who call themselves Christians that can look at this line and reflect it to their

spiritual lives. We place so much time, energy and recourses on things not of or for God. Then

seem to sit back and ask God this same line. I look at what we call a “Born again” experience

and I have to question what that really means to some. It’s not my place to judge I know that-

But for some I’m fearful that they are NOT Disciples of Christ. I watch their actions and attitudes

and see nothing that looks like what I see in the Bible. I don’t see a changed person. From a

spiritual sense I feel like they are living this line..over and over and over..Who’s on first? What’s

on Second and I Don’t Know is on Third…. They never grow. If truly we are part of the vine

of Christ I believe there should be growth and understanding of Who is one First, What is on

Second and I don’t know is on third. As yourself spiritually are you growing? Are you closer to

God than you were a month ago? Can you truly see where you are connected to the Vine of


I know Who is on First- My Lord and Savior

I know What’s second- His Coming

And For sure what happened on the Third Day.

Be blessed this week
