Why do I love the Josh Hamilton story?

Not because he’s a great baseball player.

Not because he’s an unashamed follower of Christ.

Because as he speaks, he never says he has defeated his addictions.  He has someone carry around his meal money so he doesn’t spend it on drugs.  He knows all too well the human condition, and from that perspective receives the grace that’s offered to him.  He doesn’t stand on a platform and proclaim Christ from a position of strength.  He proclaims Christ from a position of utter weakness.  Even though he’s Josh Hamilton.
