Thought for the Week

Watching the world athletic championships this week has reminded me of the new testament scriptures about running a race:

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Cor 9:24

You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? Galations 5:7

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, Hebrews 12:1

We may not be Mo Farah or Usain Bolt but we can race our own personal spiritual race, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to win a prize that lasts forever.
