The Race of Grace (11AM)
The Holidays are upon us! As soon as Halloween is here, I feel like I am entering a race that doesn’t end until January! Now don’t get me wrong, it’s all good things: family, food, celebration, fun. But the pace of life picks up and I’m running, running, running to the “tape” of January 1st.
Is this the race Paul is talking about in his letter to the Corinthians? In the three passages we will be looking at Paul describes different aspects of racing as it relates to our life in Christ. He was well acquainted with the ancient games of the Olympiad we now know as the Olympics where running a race was central. The discipline of training, the setting up of a goal, and most of all the “prize” to be won were foremost on his mind.
But he leaves it to us to define our race with Christ as we pursue the call and reach for the “prize”. So what does that mean for us here at Grace of Christ? We have run well but our race is not finished yet!!
Come run with me this Sunday through God’s word and be encouraged to “look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith”!
