You may be familiar with the Olympics for the handicapped, the Special Olympics. In one race in the Special Olympics held a few years ago, the number of runners had been reduced to five finalists. They stood at the starting line, the gun was fired, and they began running. They ran as fast as they could; getting to the finished line first was each runner’s goal. Then one of them tripped and fell. He tried to get up but could not. Then another runner—one of his competitors—stopped, reached down, and picked him up! Hand in hand, they crossed the finished line.
That act of kindness on the part of the second runner presents a wonderful picture of what winning the Christian race is all about. Winning the Christian race is not about getting across the finished line first. It is about doing everything within your power to help as many persons as you can cross that line with you.
If you have not yet accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, my prayer today is that you will make Christ your Lord and Savior right now. He will help you forgive and forget. If you have done so, please let me know how I can support your growth in Christ. If you need prayer, please click here.
God Bless You!
