One of Major League Baseball’s best pitchers is reading through the Bible in a single year – and he’s inviting everyone to take the journey with him.
Adam Wainwright, a veteran pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals, told his Twitter followers last week that he would begin reading selections each day from the Old and New Testaments and Psalms on Jan. 12 as part of an endeavor to read through God’s Word in one year.
He also set up a Twitter account dedicated to the effort and invited fans to read with him. Thus far, 13,500 have followed his new account Walking With Waino, where he posts updates about the daily readings.
“This is a cool opportunity for me to walk through God’s Word in community with you,” he wrote. “It’s my prayer that this would be a blessing and a daily encouragement to you all.”
Hey guys, I am so glad y’all joined this group. This is a cool opportunity for me to walk through God’s Word in community with you. It’s my prayer that this would be a blessing and a daily encouragement to you all. I can’t wait to start on January 12th! – https://t.co/4SnW3Z1YuY

Wainwright, 38, is a two-time World Series champion and three-time National League All-Star. He’s also led the league twice in wins.
His Bible study invitation began with a simple message posted on his primary Twitter account, which has 285,400…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
