“In light of all this, here’s what I want you to do. While I’m locked up here, a prisoner for the Master, I want you to get out there and walk—better yet, run!—on the road God called you to travel.
Ephesians 4:1 MSG
In light of God’s ability, not your ability.
In light of God’s worthiness, not your worthiness.
In light of the truth that God can do more than you can ask or imagine.
In light of God’s power, not your power – RUN your race.
Don’t compare your race with anyone else’s.
This is about your journey, your family, your school, your job, your road.
Paul’s road led him to prison and he shared the wonderful message of Jesus to all who crossed his path. He shared God’s love through Jesus to the guards, his fellow prisoners, the politicians he was brought before and anyone else who listen.
That was his race.
What is yours?
